Des-Case’s FlowGuard LT Series Lubricant Management System (LT-LMS) incorporates multiple technologies in a single unit to keep lubricants clean before they enter your equipment. Sturdy, stackable and customizable storage pods free up valuable floor space, while features like quick-disconnects and desiccant breather filters help keep fluids clean and dry. High-density polyethylene and steel tanks are available in a range of sizes with a variety of hose-end connections. Each container features a dedicated pump and motor and allows for the management of a number of lubricant types.
Spraying Systems says its AutoJet Electrostatic Lube System can provide complete, uniform lubrication of critical areas and is also well suited for oil-coating applications and other lube tasks calling for single-point delivery. Capable of accommodating up to four electrostatic nozzles with an injector pump for each, the system eliminates oil-mist concerns in the work environment, minimizes cleanup and reduces potential for product contamination. It can also help reduce oil consumption.

ExxonMobil’s new Mobil SHC Gear Series is a line of high-performance, fully-synthetic industrial gear oils formulated to help general manufacturing and processing industries increase productivity and reduce costs by lowering energy consumption and extending oil drain intervals. Approved by Siemens for use in Flender gearboxes, these lube products, according to ExxonMobil, meet or exceed nearly every other major industry and OEM specification for industrial gearbox applications. The company notes that in statistically validated laboratory tests and field trials, these fluids exhibited energy savings of up to 3.6% compared with conventional oils.*
*Energy efficiency relates solely to the fluid performance when compared with conventional reference oils of the same viscosity grade in gear applications. The technology used allows up to 3.6% efficiency compared with the reference when tested in a worm gearbox under controlled conditions. Efficiency improvements will vary based on operating conditions and application.
