Tagging lubricants for date of receipt is good practice, but you may also want to investigate how to decipher the coding on the drums which may provide information on the date of manufacture as well. Sometimes, lubricants can reside at a local distributor for many months before you receive it at the plant, and often in less than ideal storage conditions. In addition to tagging the drum with date of manufacture and/or date of receipt, consider a color and shape code schema. The color and shape coding can then be used to identify tools and accessories dedicated to a specific lubricant to control cross-contamination. Items such as filter carts, oil transfer containers and the machines or components themselves can all be marked with color and shape codes.
