What Is A Lube Skid and Some Of Its Benefits

Jun 19, 2020 -- Posted by : Cory

A lube skid is a mobile piece of lubrication equipment utilized in a work environment that can be used to top off greases, oils and fluids for vehicles or machinery. In addition, they contain waste oil storage tanks. Since they are self-contained, lube skids also reduce the need for oil storage lockers, barrels, and containers - which are traditionally difficult to maintain and keep tracking on.

Since lube skid are stand alone and self-contained, auxiliary equipment such as air compressors and generators can be mounted on them to run additional tools, like drills and welders. Once again, this reduces the need to inventory and track extra equipment on a work site and allows the business or organization to be more efficient in their core activities.

Another tremendous benefit is lube skids are not lube trucks. While this may sound elementary, lets take a closer look: They are much cheaper to purchase than trucks. They do not have a chassis and require less insurance to cover than a truck platform containing the same equipment.
