For most modern enterprises operating today, energy efficiency is a key issue to cut down running costs and to reach environmental targets. While many businesses believe that environmental concerns and finances are issues often in conflict, by simply looking at the viscosity of lubricants being used, this doesn’t Continue reading What are the advantages of choosing the correct lubricant viscosity?
Summer 2021 has seen many parts of the UK experiencing significant rainfall, from showers and storms to heavy downpours, resulting in flooding for both urban and rural areas, and the roads that connect them. This has meant that many enterprises using mechanical equipment and a variety of vehicles have seen Continue reading How to protect vehicles and equipment from wet weather
To operate correctly and efficiently, dedicated air compressor motors need to be lubricated with built-for-purpose air compressor oils. The main purpose of this specialised oil is to reduce the friction occurring between different components as they interact within in the motor. The resulting benefits of this usage include lower levels of energy consumption, reduced heat production and extended service life for both mechanical devices and Continue reading What are the properties of air compressor oil?
Zinc has long been used as an effective additive in hydraulic oils to prevent wear and oxidisation, but zinc-based hydraulic oil has often performed badly in some manufacturers’ tests for sludge formation. However, a new offering from Shell, a zinc-based hydraulic oil based on its gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology, has changed this by Continue reading Shell’s zinc-based hydraulic oil aces industry tests
Investment bank Goldman Sachs has said in a note that it does not expect the OPEC+ group to accede to a US request to increase production of oil to tame the rising oil prices that have fed into higher fuel prices at the pumps and could potentially affect derived products like Continue reading Goldman doubts increased OPEC+ production
