Reducing oil usage

Published:  26 February, 2014

GKN Land Systems lubricates the disks for about 1,500 tractor wheels a month. It hopes to reduce its oil usage by 50% and improve safety by eliminating the risk from spillage by switching from a manual, brush-applied lubrication method to a more accurate spray.xactbar-mounted system, developed and supplied by TECHNOTRANS.

“Applying lubricant to the product with a coarse brush is an uncontrolled process and uses far more oil than needed which has both cost and environmental implications. By switching to the spray.xact we can apply lubricant in a controlled way which will halve our oil usage and promote a safe, uncontaminated and healthy environment for the operator,” says Ray Rowley, tooling engineer.

GKN Land Systems liked the simplicity and versatility of the spray.xact system.
