Machinery rebuilding costs were rising every year for a plastic molding injection company, with many rebuilds sourcing back to sticking electrical valve issues. Twenty-eight separate systems in a single department relied heavily on hydraulic equipment with sensitive, actuating valves. Through an oil analysis and turnkey ISO cleanliness program, RIG helped the client increase the reliability of all critical hydraulic systems, eliminating the sticking valve issues.
Before RIG’s program was implemented, 71% of the systems were rated marginal or critical. After the program was in-place, only one system was in the marginal category and the particle count was reduced from 20/18/15 to 14/13/9, which doubled the life of each component within the department.
