May 3, 2016, Cincinnati, Ohio – RelaDyne, one of the nation’s leading providers of lubricants, fuel, diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), and industrial reliability services, will be showcasing its Varnish Mitigation services at the upcoming MRO Expo on June 7-9, 2016, in Rosemont, Illinois.
Varnish is the buildup of oil degradation products that coat the critical components of lubricating and hydraulic oil systems. Due to changes in base oil chemistry in today’s innovative lubricants, varnish has become a major issue throughout the industrial world. Many times, since varnish is not typically detectible through traditional oil analysis procedures, lubricating oil varnish problems go unnoticed until failures occur. Operators will see problems including sticking valves, increased bearing temperatures, O-ring and seal failures, reduced machine production and output quality, and rapid filter plugging, to name a few.
To combat the varnish epidemic, RelaDyne has developed a patent-pending oil processing solution to remove harmful varnish from oil and lubrication systems without requiring equipment downtime. This turnkey RelaDyne process, known as Varnish Mitigation, is part of RelaDyne’s Reliability Services division – helping customers achieve lubrication reliability through customized solutions. With RelaDyne’s proven Varnish Mitigation technology, customers have seen increased reliability, reduced servo valve and component failures, and increased pump and bearing life, all without negative impact to production. Many customers have experienced substantially improved machine performance in a little as eight hours after the start of the process.
“We’ve seen game-changing results from Varnish Mitigation technology in an industry that has struggled with varnish for decades,” states Doug Muennich, RelaDyne Business Development Manager of Varnish Mitigation. “With the implementation of this process, we’ve seen the resurrection of machines that were headed for the scrap yard.”
With proven data and customer testimonials from some of the largest US injection molding companies, RelaDyne is showcasing Varnish Mitigation (Booth 230) at this year’s upcoming Maintenance, Repair, and Operations Expo. MRO Expo is an annual exposition featuring the necessary maintenance, repair, and operating equipment, services, and supplies a plastics manufacturer needs to keep a shop floor operating efficiently. Produced by the same team that brings you NPE: The International Plastics Showcase, MRO Expo will provide a one-stop location for plastics manufacturers to research, specify, assess and price annual MRO equipment, supply, and services.
“We are excited to bring this technology to the people who need it most,” says Larry Stoddard, RelaDyne CEO. “We know varnish is a daily battle, and we’re here to make the fight easier for our customers.”
