Oil storage station

Modernise your oil storage and handling practices

Oil storage station
It is well known that approximately 50% of all premature bearing failures come from poor lubrication and contamination. During storage, maintenance and transfer, lubricant can easily get contaminated due to lack of lubrication knowledge or simply lack of attention. It is very common for different lubricants to get mixed or contaminated with various unwanted materials – solid particles, moisture, processing fluids, etc.

Lubrication contamination and cross contamination can occur during:
  • Delivery (lubricant is already contaminated).
  • Storage (contaminants can ingress).
  • Transfer to smaller cans (poor process).
  • Dispensing to machinery (poor process).

Oil storage station benefits
Oil storage station is an integrated solution designed to minimize the chances for lubricating oils to get cross contaminated or contaminated during storage and transfer. It is a customized solution helping to help ensure clean, organized, safe and reliable lubricant identification, storage and transfer. It consists of the tailor-made set of colour-coded tanks, pumps, hose reels, filters and additional lubricant handling equipment and tools. SKF offers an analysis of your current lubrication practices and proposes an improvement in various oil storage station configurations to satisfy the required application.
