With oil costs rising, Hydracare is helping manufacturers by making sure their machines and oil are at their best for longer; reducing the need to purchase new oil as often. It also helps to keep the machine working smoothly, identifying potential problems before they turn into real, costly issues.
Over the past few months, there has been a significant shortage of base oil on the world market which has led to dramatic price hikes for raw materials. Hydraulic oils have suffered corresponding jumps in price and a concerning lack of available supply.
Appropriate oil maintenance and management are always important. At the current price points, it is even more crucial to get the maximum service out of your investment in quality lubricants.
Minimising downtime and maximising productive uptime is the goal of all production facilities. With over 25 years of experience and expertise, Hydracare works with its customers to ensure that these goals are met in the most cost-effective way.
As the leading supplier of oil products and services to the plastic moulding industry, Hydracare provides a comprehensive preventative maintenance programme.
With its experience and expertise in the industry, Hydracare works with plant managers and operatives to extend the lifecycle of the oil in machines, reducing the need for regular replacement, thereby reducing oil purchase costs, as well as identifying machine problems and so that remedial action can be taken before expensive failure occurs.
The preventative maintenance programme from Hydracare covers several tests and support. Starting with sampling and analysis, this service will check the quality and condition of the oil using particle counting equipment, provide a detailed report.
Hydracare also provides offline filtration. Using specialist equipment, it removes particulate contamination from the oil to ensure optimum cleanliness levels. This filtration works best with the machine is working in production, thereby eliminating costly downtime.
Other services in the preventative maintenance programme include tank cleaning and filtering out water contamination.
