Here’s some real┬ácosts associated with high leakage machines:

Cost of replacement lubricant
Cost of catching the spilled lubricant
Waste oil disposal cost
Environmental cost
Cost of in-plant transfer and resulting empty drums
Extra drum disposal cost
Temptation to switch to cheaper lubricant
Extra labor involved to maintain oil level
Shorter equipment life due to poor in service maintenance
Shorter equipment life due to lubricant starvation
Substitution of product due to emergency fill operation
Housekeeping costs

And a real “Biggie”:
