Often Overlooked, Lubricants Can Help Lower Energy Consumption

Stating the fact that better lubrication can lead to dramatic energy savings and an improved bottom line, this paper outlines how manufacturing plants can use lubrication reliability best practices to reduce their energy consumption, emissions and operating costs. It lists the types and sources of energy available, illustrating how some usable energy is lost during conversions from one form of energy to another. Basics of lubricant formulations are presented in the form of a table, explaining the complexity of lubricant formulations. Describing ways of measuring energy savings that can be realized by choosing the right lubrication for a particular application, the paper highlights the benefits of finding a lubrication partner that can help develop a comprehensive lubrication reliability program that includes lubricant selection, protection, and maintenance.

Which P-80® Lubricant is the Right Choice for My Job?

What is P-80®? P-80® is a line of temporary rubber assembly lubricants designed to decrease the installation force needed to install rubber parts, enabling them to slide easily into place. P-80 lubricants are water-based and do not contain alcohol or petroleum distillates, so they will not cause rubber to swell, dry out or harden. P-80 does not contain silicon or other persistent ingredients,...

What is the Dry Time of P-80®? (And, Why it Matters)

What is the dry time of P-80®? (And, why it matters) Why does dry time matter? P-80® lubricants are temporary assembly lubricants. When P-80 is wet it provides the needed lubrication to reduce the friction of rubber parts during assembly. Once P-80 dries the lubrication ceases and parts stay in place. Some assembly applications may benefit from using a quick-drying lubricant. This is often the...
