The correct selection and rational use of lubricants reduces the total cost of ownership equipment The issue reducing total cost ownership of machinery and equipment (Total Cost of ownership – TCO) is becoming increasingly relevant for the vast majority of transport and industrial industries. Companies that use high-tech equipment in their production are interested in ensuring that the equipment does not fail, serve as long as possible and require less maintenance. How the correct selection and rational use of lubricants can reduce the total cost of ownership of equipment? The cost of lubricants is 2% – 5% in the structure of the cost of servicing equipment, but at the same time affect each of the items of expenses on ownership of equipment: Opportunities for savings are opening up by extending lubricant replacement intervals, saving on fuel and maintenance, and minimizing downtime. Thus, the rational use of lubricants helps to reduce the total cost of ownership of the equipment and increase its productivity. Practice shows that cooperation with Shell has allowed Kazakh enterprises to save more than 188 million rubles in 2011-2015 and to improve equipment performance through the use of innovative lubricants, as well as a range of equipment diagnostics services and professional technical advice from Shell representatives.
