Our expertise is in oil management for the plastic injection moulding industry, and we provide various levels of fluid management services throughout the UK, for all industrial sectors.
In plastic injection moulding machines, high quality, hydraulic oils are recommended, in line with a tailored oil management program. Plastic Injection moulding machines are fitted with high quality pumps, fine tolerance valves, ultra-fine filters and contain various multi-metals and seals made from many different materials. To help, prolong the life of your machines and to protect the internal components within the machine, using an oil that is compatible with all internal components, with excellent filterability, properties which will help to minimise unplanned maintenance, increase oil drain intervals, minimise equipment failure, lowering costs and improving your company balance sheet.

We also provide fluid management services to the metalworking sector, and we stock and supply EXOL Lubricants range of new technology metalworking fluids and machine tool lubricants.

Many OEM’s have a recommended oil cleanliness recommendation. This is
usually an ISO Cleanliness Code of between 16/14/11 to 18/15/12 which varies
depending on the manufacturer. It is recommended that for initial fill and
service fill oil changes that hydraulic oils are filtered into the machine sump.
Using very high-quality long-life hydraulic oils manufactured using Group II
base stocks and an outstanding additive package, can help provide the
following benefits:

  • Increased oil drain intervals
  • High oxidation resistance and thermal stability
  • Increased energy efficiency potential
  • Excellent filterability
  • Minimise sludge build up and varnishing.

The expected lifespan of hydraulic oils depends on many factors and can be extended by ensuring machine parameters are correct and monitored, and the oil is regularly filtered to ISO16/14/11 or better. Oil lifespan will be shortened if the oil is not maintained, age of the machine, wear patterns and inefficient cooling to name a few. Increases in oil temperature over and above recommended levels will decrease the life span of the oil.
