Manufacturing business secures 80% maintenance cost reduction with Certas Energy and Shell Lubricants

Lubricants play a unique but vital role in maintaining optimum equipment productivity and reliability to deliver long term cost savings over time…

Manufacturing orders in the UK reached their highest level in nearly 30 years in 2017, putting intense pressure on equipment to be operating at peak productivity 24/7 while maintaining consistent quality standards. Lubricants play a unique but vital role in maintaining optimum equipment productivity and reliability to deliver long term cost savings over time.

Jubilee®️ Clips Ltd, the company that manufactures the famous Jubilee®️ brand clamp, was looking to enhance the efficiency of its operations as it was experiencing very short oil drainage intervals (ODI) of its hydraulic pressure packs.

In need of a solution to prevent rising costs and equipment downtime, Jubilee®️ Clips sought advice from expert partner and Shell distributor, Certas Energy Lubricants, to identify the most appropriate lubricants and maintenance cycles available.

Our technical experts recommended that a high performance hydraulic fluid, such as Shell Tellus S2 V (X) 46, would offer improved viscosity control under both severe mechanical stress while still maintaining performance across a wide range of temperatures, when compared to ISO HM fluids.

From first use, Jubilee®️ Clips was immediately able to extend maintenance intervals as Shell Tellus S2 V (X) 46, resists thermal and chemical breakdown, therefore minimising sludge formation and improving system cleanliness. With its excellent oil cleanliness particle count, Shell Tellus S2 V (X) 46 fluids also help reduce the impact of contaminants on filter blocking, allowing both extended filter life and enhancing equipment protection.

Ian Jennings, Managing Director at Jubilee®️ Clips commented: “The team at Certas Energy Lubricants really demonstrated their sector and product knowledge and delivered a solution they were confident we were going to see some immediate results from. They fulfilled their promise and the tailored solution they provided has in just 12 months saved us close to £4,000, made operations run more effectively and we’ve even seen an uplift in quality standards as a result of us being more confident in the performance of the machinery.”
