Have you ever left your lubricants, that you depend on to lubricate your machines, open to dirt and moisture? Then no doubt you still use the old oil can with rags. The reason that your expensive lubricants run the risk to get contaminated by dirt, water and other particulates. And even worse… your equipment get contaminated too, since the smallest particulates can cause asset components to fail prematurely.
Another problem with oil transfer and oil storage methods is incorrect lubricant usage or lubricant cross contamination.
Fully sealing units are the solution to prevent contaminants from getting into the oil. Sealable, reusable oil storage containers are easy to dispense without the need for tools like funnels. Another recommendation is integrating a color-coded system, which includes properly labeled containers to prevent cross contamination, so that contents are easily identifiable.
