The partnership involves offering ‘Oil as a service’ through the integration of the SKF RecondOil offer with Castrol’s metalworking lubricants, enabling circular use of the lubricant fluid, reducing consumption while improving machine performance.
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SKF continues to expand its RecondOil offer through a partnership agreement with Castrol, one of the world’s leading lubricant brands. The partnership will enable Castrol industrial customers to use integrated RecondOil Double Separation Technology (DST) systems.
SKFs RecondOil Double Separation Technology (DST) can be used in neat oil manufacturing processes. It reconditions used fluids and recirculates them back into the metalworking process, reducing consumption and handling of the oil, while improving machine performance in the process.
Thomas Fröst, President, Independent and Emerging Businesses, says: “We recognise the importance of circularity within industrial processes, and our partnership with Castrol is another step towards making this a reality. By combining SKF RecondOil and Castrol lubrication fluid technology, we can offer `Oil as a service’ solutions that help reduce waste, save energy and improve manufacturing processes.”
