It isn’t widely known that Ben Franklin’s famous quote, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” was actually about fire safety. This mindset was the catalyst to the 1736 formation of one of the first volunteer fire departments in the United States. The idea behind the quote is that a few inexpensive preventative measures can save you from significant costs and heartache.
This same philosophy translates to the critical wear components in your lubrication systems. Know that Sloan Lubrication Systems is here to help ensure that your systems stay operational and performing at maximum efficiency.
