Millers Oils’ new fluid management service provides up to one month extra manufacturing capacity per year
Milliclean 1000T and Millmax Stay Clean 46 showcased at Advanced Engineering Show
Brighouse, Yorkshire- A new service from Millers Oils, which can provide one extra month manufacturing capacity per year, is being showcased at the Advanced Engineering Show (11-12 November, stand C55, Birmingham NEC). The two-step cleaning system helps injection moulders reduce downtime and improve process times by up to eight percent by restoring performance and efficiency to high-pressure hydraulic machinery. The company is also offering visitors to the stand the opportunity to discuss, with a technical expert, the manufacturing problems they have encountered and how industrial lubrication technologies can provide the solution.
“The Advanced Engineering show is a great opportunity to showcase our Milliclean 1000T and Millmax Stay Clean 46 fluid management service,” says Bob Howard, Industrial Business Development Manager, Millers Oils. “At Millers Oils we are dedicated to helping our customers tackle their manufacturing issues. By reducing downtimes and improving process times, we are providing customers with a cost-effective method to increase production and profitability.”
The initial stage of the process uses Milliclean 1000T to remove lacquer and sludge from all parts of the hydraulic system, including; tanks, valves, pumps and other key components, eliminating valve stick and improving energy efficiency. The system is then filled with Millmax Stay Clean 46 (or 68 depending on the requirement) to keep it free from further lacquer and sludge deposits. Millmax Stay Clean extends oil cleanliness by up to three times and resistance to oil oxidation by up to four times, reducing component wear and extending oil change intervals.
“Some of our fluid management customers have reported an eight percent improvement in process times, effectively giving them one month extra manufacturing capacity every year,” says Howard. “The new service allows manufacturers to run cleaning cycles without halting production or negatively impacting finished part quality, and will help them to continue operating their equipment with high standards of precision and reliability.”
About Millers Oils
Millers Oils was founded in 1887 by John Watson Miller, and since then the company has displayed a talent for innovation and industry firsts. It was the first to offer diesel specific engine oil for cars and continues to push boundaries to earn its place as a world leader in the technology of low friction. In January 2012, Millers Oils launched nanotechnology engine oils. When tested against a competitor’s oil of the same viscosity, Nanodrive recorded 40% lower friction at operating temperatures of 110°C, with significantly improved film strength. Millers Oils uses the expertise gained in motorsport and performance car development to ensure it remains a leader in automotive and commercial vehicle oils Millers Oils devotes an equivalent R &D effort to its broad range of industrial lubricants, most recently into hydraulic oil subjected to spot operating temperatures of +130 C in systems fitted with nitrogen accumulators used in offshore drilling operations. The resulting Millers Oils product is now in international use.
