The injection moulding machines at ALPLA were experiencing higher than normal levels of contamination in their oil. The manufacturer of their injection moulding machines requires a cleanliness of ISO 16/14/11; anything less will void the warranty.
Routine maintenance of their injection moulding machine showed contamination was causing:
- Premature component wear
- Inconsistency of manufactured products
- Quality issues
- Increased downtime
Analysis showed contamination levels exceeded allowable limits, jeopardising their warranty
Backed by over 50 years of expertise, Triple-R took on the task of providing a solution to ALPLA’s injection moulding machines contamination issues.
As the industry leader in oil cleaning solutions, Triple R installed an oil cleaning unit onto the machine’s reservoir. The unit has a pump and motor which allows it to circulate oil through the housing without the need to use system pressure.
- SS103-1R Oil Cleaner
- M-Series elements
Achieved an average reduction in contamination levels of 95.25%
After only 30 hours another sample was taken and the results were substantial;
- ISO Before: 17/16/14
- ISO After: 13/12/9
It was determined that there is no need for a costly oil change which saved the customer $8,000 and 24 hours of lost production time. In addition, analysis showed contamination levels were reduced to better than manufacturers requirements.
