Grease Thief enhances the ANALEXfdMplus

Oil analysis is a well established practice in predictive maintenance. Lubricant analysis is often paired with other technologies such as infrared thermography, vibration analysis and ultrasound techniques. These technologies are very useful in detecting problems in machinery before costly failures and down time occur.

Interlube’s automatic lubrication systems save you both time & money!

Interlube Systems have developed a unique automatic lubrication system which is already showing huge savings in work time and running costs. The Interlube System provides continuous lubrication to all moving parts whilst the plant is still in operation .

Constant controlled lubrication means that the plant is being lubricated whilst in operation on site, this gives adequate and even lubrication all the time, something that cannot be maintained if the machine has to be "parked up" for servicing.The long term benefits includes radical reduction in worn and damaged parts caused by erratic and irregular lubrication, and plant downtime for replacement of lubrication is dispensed with.

Manufacturers reduce total costs through better lubrication practices

Barrels of CastrolIn today’s environment, many manufacturers are focusing on total cost of ownership to help them sustain competitive advantage. This approach filters through to the way they identify and approach the best suppliers and partners to work with. Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is the approach that Castrol Industrial has adopted for many years to help customers improve their maintenance and production activities. Every one of Castrol’s lubrication offers can create value in the TCO area.

When considering total cost of ownership, manufacturers review and assess the direct and indirect costs and benefits of the materials they purchase. This includes the initial outlay of purchasing e.g. the unit price of products and the volume purchased (direct costs) and any indirect costs affected by product usage e.g. equipment wear rate, safety risks, maintenance costs.
