Improper lubrication creates drag and friction, wasting money and damaging equipment. Correct lubrication strategies improve reliability, can help avoid costly repairs and save energy to reduce harmful CO2 emissions.
“Optimized lubrication is more important than ever to increase reliability, lower emissions and reduce plant operation costs,” said Phil Grellier, Dow Corning global solutions development manager.
“The Molykote Energy Savings Calculator can help manufacturers meet sustainability goals and fulfill their commitment to innovative, energy-efficient solutions by understanding where they may be wasting energy.” This new online tool is for plant managers and industrial maintenance engineers who stand to benefit from increased awareness of the importance of lubrication as part of a proactive and planned maintenance program. When users can enter the number of motors, gearboxes, pumps, compressors and fans, the kilowatts needed to run them, their efficiency, the hours per day and days per year into the calculator, they are shown potential reductions in kilowatt hours, CO2 emissions and the associated cost savings.
Molykote® brand lubricants from Dow Corning reduce friction to lower the amount of energy needed to operate equipment, helping the environment and saving money.
