Importance of effective lubrication
29 November 2017
Manufacturing companies are underestimating the potential cost savings and equipment productivity gains from effective lubrication, according to a study by Shell Lubricants.
Yin Jie, Shell Global Sector manager for General Manufacturing, said: “The impact of lubrication on productivity and maintenance costs is often underestimated. At Shell Lubricants, we work together with customers to identify opportunities to help enhance equipment productivity and reduce operating costs by properly looking after the lubrication needs of their machinery. This is not just about selecting the right lubricants, but ensuring they are properly applied and managed. In doing so, we have delivered £105 million in savings to customers worldwide over the last five years[.”
Shell Lubricants has released a whitepaper to show the tangible business benefits that can be achieved through correct selection and management of lubricants.
