After 15+ years of providing industrial fluids, lubricants, oils, fluids analysis and fluids maintenance,
we have seen, much too late and after-the-fact, many serious plant problems related to fluids.
B-A-D problems with heavy metals that never had to happen . . . accidental contamination that shut-down
a facility and caused the price of waste hauling to quintuple . . . 3500 gallons of lubricant ruined by "Midnight Rider"
waste company - because they had no idea that the additives their process stripped out . . . were critical to the
customer's operation. We have accurately evaluated and corrected many of these "fluids fiascos."
Tech Talks was written to help prevent these kinds of disasters from happening to your plant.
Tech Talks are short, readable essays that are tailor-made for facilities that use lubricants, coolants,
industrial oils and cleaners. We invite you to read and pass them along to anyone who might need
help keeping themselves and their fluids out of trouble - (and out of the newspaper.)
