Increased efficiency can result in more than just reduced costs – it could lower emissions, too. Finding more efficiency could be as simple as changing lubricant supplier. The correct lubricants not only extend machine life and oil drain intervals, they save energy and reduce waste. At PLI, we do more than just supply the right lubricant, we offer the support and services that can take efficiency to the next level.
INDUSTRIAL LUBRICANTS FOR CEMENT
Lubricants that can improve efficiency
Meeting your challenges with our expertise
When you’re trying to drive improvements in production while meeting your commitments to sustainability, you need a partner with technical expertise in the cement industry. At PLI, we’ve developed specialised industry products such as PETRONAS Gear Syn PAG 680 Gengear approval to reduce maintenance costs and waste, and lower power consumption and CO2 levels.
The cement production process is often singled out as a large contributor to global emissions. Talk to us about our energy saving fluids to help reduce your CO2.
From crushing raw materials to dust output, cement production is hazardous. We take safety as seriously as you do. As part of our Partner+ programme, we educate maintenance teams in lubricant storage, handling, and best practices.
Finding materials less damaging to the atmosphere – or as alternatives to the natural resources normally used in production – is as important to us as it is to you. Ask us about extending oil life via our synthetic lubricants.
Innovation and digitisation
Like the cement industry, we use new technology and processes to develop a wider product offering. See how we innovate at our R&T centre in Turin.
€15k savings with switch to PETRONAS
Overheated crusher bearings proved too much of a challenge for the grease Aslar Cement were previously using. A switch to PETRONAS Grease LiX MEP reduced both costs and downtime.
“It’s had a positive effect on energy saving, maintenance costs, equipment life and the cost of spare parts.”
Excessive foaming no longer a problem
PETRONAS GEAR MEP has excellent anti-foaming properties, so why was excessive foaming a problem for Cementir? Our technical expert discovered an air leak was the cause.
“We proposed a step-by-step approach and identified an air leak in the system .”
