For reliability best practices, oil storage and transfer containers are essential
Stop the insanity. Why leave your lubricants that you depend on to lubricate your machines open to dirt and moisture? It’s time to get rid of the old oil can with rag. The oil can method allows water, dirt and other particulates to contaminate your expensive lubricants. Whatever ends up in the oil, ends up in your equipment. The smallest particulates, especially the ones we do not see, can cause asset components to fail prematurely.
Another problem with oil transfer and oil storage methods is incorrect lubricant usage or lubricant cross contamination. Ever had an operator pick up an unmarked container and use the wrong lubricant on a piece of equipment? This can have a very negative effect on asset protection.
Sealable, reusable oil storage containers are the solution to prevent contamination. They make lubricant storage and handling easy, efficient and clean. Best practice recommendations also include integrating a color-coding system that includes properly labeled containers to prevent misapplication and cross contamination. Oil Safe® oil storage containers can provide instant impact on your lubricant reliability efforts. Lubrication Engineers is an authorized distributor of Oil Safe®, the oil transfer management system preferred by leading companies around the world.
