Most petroleum-based lubricants stored in ambient-controlled conditions (not suffering temperature swings) last for 30 years. However, most lubricants are not stored in ambient-controlled conditions: temperature swings allow moisture, foreign material and other contaminants to enter the storage containers, resulting in reduced lube life and effectiveness. The end result: shortened equipment life and even failures.
Properly storing lubricants and lube equipment can greatly extend their life and effectiveness. However, finding an area in a plant that is isolated, free of contamination and controlled (temperature and humidity) can be extremely difficult. If such a project is undertaken, it is either cost or space prohibitive.
Plug & Play Lube Storage Rooms offer a mobile lube storage room delivered to your plant. First, customize your lube room by selecting from options such as color, container size (40â€™ x 8â€™ x 8â€™ or 20â€™ x 8â€™ x 8â€™), pumps, filters, access, lighting, cabinets, filters, drip pans, life safety, etc. Then, select a space in your plant, inside or out, supply the power, and presto, you have a state-of-the-art lube storage room. The rooms are insulated, climate-controlled, heated, air conditioned and even de-humidified which may be required in certain geographic areas.
