Did you know that over-lubrication causes many cases of bearing failure?
Research shows that between 30% and 40 % of bearing failures are linked to over-lubrication. To avoid this, it is vital to use the right amount of lubricant, at the right time. More is not better. On the contrary. To much lubricant can lead to increased temperature, greases can age faster and become thicker, putting a strain on the engineering. Also, make sure the pressure in the grease gun is not too high. This can cause waer, damage seals, lead to leakage which causes corrosion, and also increases the risk of breakdown.

Did you know that the right hydraulic oil decreases energy loss?
Therefore, choose an oil with the right properties, especially in terms of viscsity. An oil with lower viscosity is easier to "pull" around the hydraulic system, thus reducing energy loss and saving money. Many people choose a high-viscosity oil out of habit, but this is an area worth reflecting on to achieve improved lubrication and lower costs.

Did you know that oil can act as a heated garage in a can?
With a thinner engine oil, you avoid having to idle to keep the engine ticking over on cold days. This oil improved startability and reduces wear, and is therefore known as "a heated garage in a can". And of course, no idling is good news for your finances and the environment!

Did you know that the oil flow in a truck engine moves quickly and a long way?
The oil covers a distance of 9,5 metres as it travels round all the nooks and crannies of an engine. Consequently, it's crucial that there's no soot or oxidation to obstruct the flow of oil. Due to the constant flow, each component in the engine is passed and lubricated by 135 litres of oil per minute.
