The Corporate Report 2013: Royal Purple LLC

1112crrp1Royal Purple was founded as an industrial lubricants company by John Williams, a pioneer in developing synthetic lubricants. In the early 1980s, Williams was asked by an oil production company to solve chronic bearing failures in their large compressors. He set out to produce a lubricant with the ability to handle the extreme demands of equipment. 

New Lubricant Technology
Williams’ work resulted in a new additive technology that fortified lubricants with an unusually high film strength capable of protecting rotating-equipment components under extreme operating conditions. In addition, the technology had exceptional oxidation stability for long oil life and provided outstanding protection against rust and corrosion in both wet and high temperature applications. This new additive technology—called Synerlec®—became the cornerstone of the Royal Purpleproduct line. Synfilm® GT is one of the innovative products that uses Synerlec technology. 

Versatility 

  • Synfilm® GT is Royal Purple’s most versatile lubricant. In the appropriate viscosity grade, it is recommended for use in gas and steam turbines, centrifugal compressors, pumps, vacuum pumps, blowers, bearings, gears, worm gears and more. It is a long-life, high-film-strength, energy-efficient, synthetic lubricant that significantly increases bearing life and equipment reliability.
  • Synfilm GT gains its performance advantages over competing mineral and synthetic oils through its superior blend of synthetic base oils plus Royal Purple’s proprietary Synerlec additive technology. This unique additive technology is proven to make equipment run smoother, cooler and quieter, as well as more reliably and efficiently.


1112crrp2Performance Advantages

  • High Film Strength: Synfilm GT protects bearings far beyond the ability of other turbine oils, carrying significantly greater loads.
  • Long Oil Life: Synfilm GT has out-standing oxidation stability that greatly extends oil change intervals while keeping equipment clean. 
  • Saves Energy: Synfilm GT has an extremely low coefficient of friction that is proven to save energy over conventional oils. In rotating equipment these savings frequently exceed the total cost of the oil within several months making what was once an oil expense a profit. 
  • Excellent Corrosion Protection: Synfilm GT’s tough oil film forms an ionic bond on metal surfaces, which acts as a preservative oil during shutdown and provides instant lubrication at startup.
  • Synthetic Solvency: Synfilm GT’s natural solvency cleans up dirty equipment and keeps it clean.

Though the Synfilm GT formulation has the ability to reliably lubricate many different types of equipment, Royal Purple produces a complete range of high performance lubricants for nearly every industrial application.

The Corporate Report 2013: Air Sentry

1112crairsentry1Air Sentry® is a leading manufacturer of contamination control products, preventing cross contamination of lubricants and keeping particulates and moisture from entering industrial machinery: Gearboxes, reservoirs, and storage tanks that hold lubricants and fuels that utilize our products are kept clean and dry, allowing for optimum lubricant performance.

Air Sentry is an advocate of Reliability Centered maintenance—teaching and assisting customers in improving facilities and maintenance programs, conducting plant surveys and increasing awareness to improve lubrication practices and reduce maintenance costs. By providing devices designed to keep dirt and moisture out of lubricating fluids and fuels, Air Sentry products ensure longer fluid life. This extends the life of critical machinery and equipment, and significantly reduces costs for equipment repair and replacement, and unplanned downtime. 

Innovation Drives Us
Air Sentry’s history of innovation dates back to the very beginning. We were first to design solid desiccant beds, allowing for more desiccant, longer life, and better value for the end-user. We were the first to design breathers with replacement cartridges to further reduce costs and environmental waste. We were first to integrate check valve technology into breathers to extend the life of the desiccant. Older designs resulted in desiccant being wasted drying air around the equipment. Air Sentry check valve designs dry only air drawn into equipment, significantly extending the life of the device and reducing costs. 

ColorGuard®—aluminum color-coded adapter kits—work with other color-coded storage and transfer systems and allow visual identification of contents to prevent cross contamination. Cust-omers can filter, fill and sample lubricants, through quick connects, without opening the vessel to atmosphere. This streamlines maintenance and eliminates fluid handling issues. Drum, hydraulic-reservoir, domed-flange and gearbox adapter kits are available in eight distinct colors.

New Breather. New Rules. New Standard.
With the launch of a revolutionary new series, we’ve taken the gold standard to the next level. Guardian® incorporates prior innovations and several industry-first features, enabling it to last longer and significantly reduce cost and maintenance intervals.

The Modular Stack Ring allows for multiple configurations specific to our customer’s needs. The Isolation Check Valve protects the adsorbent from exhaust air and allows installation over fuels and volatile fluids without harm to the desiccant. 

Guardian is the first breather constructed of Tritan™ for the best combination of chemical, temperature and impact resistance on the market, allowing installation in the harshest environments.

The Guardian Shield prevents free water from equipment wash-down or driving rain from forcing open the airflow check valves and excessive dust and dirt from settling on the valves in harsh environments like paper mills or coal mines.

Value
Every innovation has been made to reduce the cost of employing world-class maintenance practices. Air Sentry has been setting the bar for longer breather, fluid and equipment life since 1997, and we’re just getting started.

From Our Perspective: The Importance Of Cognitive Bandwidth

ken bannister thumb thumb thumb

By Ken Bannister, Contributing Editor

As I recently watched a commercial for a Broadway-style production of I Love Lucy, I began to chuckle at the thought of my favorite episode of that iconic 1950s-era TV show. “Job Switching” featured Lucy and Ethel (played by comediennes Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance) trying desperately to succeed at their jobs in a chocolate factory. Their task was to take chocolates off a conveyor belt, wrap them and put them back on the belt. Simple, yes? Not if you were Lucy Ricardo!
