How To Find Reliable Lubrication Solutions For Coastal Environments.

Oxidation, rust, corrosion, and water exposure can be significantly higher along South Africa’s coastal belt. So much so that coastal conditions are often classified as “extreme condition environments”. This doesn’t have to mean, however, that components operating in coastal plants will always have a shorter lifespan or run less efficiently
