Now is the time to invest in new technology to reduce carbon emissions and improve your bottom line.
If you aren’t using modern and scientific approaches to the maintenance of your plant and equipment then it is time to join those companies that do use new technologies to improve their profits.
Gone are the days of “just in case” or scheduled maintenance. You can waste your profits on unnecessary servicing. It is now possible to monitor and then only service your equipment – “just in time”- actually when a service is needed.
This “just in time” maintenance really does improve your bottom line. Now you only do repairs and maintenance when they are necessary. Because you are always monitoring the health of your machinery you know exactly when repair of any components are needed. By extending the time between services and reducing down time you have the potential to save thousands of dollars. You also know when to repair or replace equipment so you get maximum return on your expenditure.
We all know that any problems that lead to an unexpected shutdown can cause a significant loss of income. Catching these problems before perhaps a pump failure or before rupturing of a hydraulic seal can eliminate the need for costly repairs and rebuilds.
All of these cost savings are possible just through monitoring and analyzing your equipment’s oil. The condition of the oil will reveal excessive wear or ingress of solid contaminants or water.
Changing our approach to maintenance can require a significant shift in attitude and thinking. It involves using new technologies and trusting these will indicate when servicing and maintenance is actually needed. Some clients who have become familiar with this new approach have so much faith in the analysis of oil that they won’t even use new oil until they have verified it is actually clean.
The next part of this move to “just in time” maintenance is to effectively clean hydraulic and gear oils using a centrifugal cleaning process. Oil filtration systems are limited in their ability to remove solid contaminants from oil. Metal fragments don’t have to be big to cause wear. The way a centrifuge works means that even the tiniest contaminants will be removed from the system.
Again this saves a huge amount on maintenance and repairs, because especially for equipment subjected to a heavy workload under extreme conditions, clean oil makes all the difference.
Let WT Hydraulics guide you towards the correct monitoring and then cleaning of your oil. Let us show you how much the timely maintenance and servicing of your equipment will save you on costs. Discover how long you can safely extend the life of your oil and so reduce your costs as well as your carbon footprint.
