Modern generation of cost-effective lubricants available in India are assisting the users to achieve the highest possible uptime of the equipment. They have broken the myth
¨Better Lubricant Higher the Cost¨in many ways. Some significant benefits by use of good quality lubricants in equipment are witnessed by the user in terms of lesser oil consumption and lower costs of replacing worn out parts higher. The added advantage being minimal premature or surprise failure of components and in turn relief from the costs of consequential failures. It would be worthwhile to mention the latest generation synthetic lubricants have capabilities to substantially reduce wear in sliding or rotating parts and retarded deterioration properties to facilitate 3 to 4 times increase in their change intervals. In fact the filter suppliers had to develop advanced filtration systems to support these oils as they a vital role in their efficacy.
In order to propagate the use of high-end lubricants, reputed manufacturers are also conducting actual on-site case studies to convince their clients and taking their permission to publish such reports. We bring forth a case study on use of a particular grade and brand of lubricant which delivered measurable financial benefits to the user. Once again training our focus on safety, we bring you two features. One on safety in hydraulic excavators, which incidentally are one on the fastest selling construction equipment these days and the second on safety in concrete pumps for the interest of our readers.
