Good lubrication of machines is essential. This certainly applies to mowers that have to deal with extreme conditions. In this case study, we show how our Eurol Specialty lubricants help reduce maintenance and costs at JvESCH's machine park in Cromvoirt.
- Type of machinery: (mowing) machines (± 300 at JvESCH)
- Product use: three greases for three different applications (pin and bush connections; bearings; underwater application involving grasses).
- Description of the situation: Thomas Span is the workshop manager at JvESCH in Cromvoirt, where he is responsible for the daily management of mechanics, the maintenance and operation of the machines and the purchase of lubricants. Thomas Span had been looking for a single grease that could replace the three current greases. Three different greases were used, each with its own application: pin and bush connections, bearings and underwater application. Crops play a role in this. The desire was to make lubrication more efficient so as to reduce the risk of misapplication and downtime.
Solving the problems caused by crops
With Eurol Grease CS-2/501, all three applications were lubricated and protected against crop damage. JvESCH was therefore able to change from three to one lubricant for the machines. As a result, the maintenance of the machines and the risk of errors was reduced.
Improvements and savings thanks to the Eurol Specialty lubricants
JvESCH was able to change from three greases to one lubricant for the maintenance of the machines. With Eurol Grease CS-2/501, not only has the frequency of lubrication been reduced, but a reduction of 20% to 25% in the amount of grease required has also been achieved.
Value of the savings and improvements of better lubrication
The total annual saving for JvESCH, which applies Eurol Grease CS-2/501 in 300 of its machines, will be thousands of euros.
