Oil change intervals extended 4x for a compressor in the printing industry.

Oil change intervals extended 4x for a compressor in the printing industry.

By using an additive, a saving of $25,668 for the compressor was achieved.

Interflon Finnoly NT500


Initial situation

The compressor operates 24 hours a day. If the demand for compressed air is high, the compressor is heavily loaded and runs hot. The oil was changed every 500 operating hours. Each oil change required production to be shut down for 2 hours.


Our solution

The friction-reducing gear oil additive Interflon Finnoly NT500 was used. This oil is mixed with the conventional oil and even sealed small leaks.


Result

Adding 5% Interflon Finnoly NT500 to the oil in use results in the compressor running smoothly and losing much less oil. The interval between oil changes was extended to 2,000 operating hours. A total of $25,668 was saved.
