EP Editorial Staff | December 14, 2012
The OilSafe® Visual Lubrication Management System from Fluid Defense Systems is the company’s easy-to-implement, flagship innovation that helps users keep their storage areas clean and safe and prove their commitment to best practices.
Providing a Range of Benefits
Customizable, visually intuitive labels ensure consistent fluid identification throughout the manufacturing environment. The OilSafe Work Center provides safe, compact bulk storage and contamination control to promote best practices for lean manufacturing, 5Rs, 5S and OSHA® right-to-know compliance. In-line filtration and precise-pour transfer containers simplify maintenance and safeguard workflow. As a result, plants benefit from a complete system that covers the entire process loop and works with any existing maintenance process.
“Our OilSafe transfer containers and labels have long been the industry standard to reduce contamination and spills. We recognized a need in the market to add bulk storage and dispensing to create a fully integrated system for managing lubrication from delivery to point of application,” explains John Gillian, Chief Executive Officer for Fluid Defense. “That’s why we’re proud to introduce the OilSafe Work Center.”
The OilSafe Work Center is the only modular, scalable bulk system of its kind. Each tank has its own pump and built-in filtration to prevent fluid cross-contamination and keep fluid storage areas organized, clean and free of the 55-gallon drums that are commonly used. According to Gillian, “It’s a safe and reliable solution that helps companies across the world instantly establish bulk-storage best practices on the plant floor and prevent the inefficiencies, downtime and lost production that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
Serving a Range of Applications
The OilSafe Work Center has been successfully implemented in applications such as manufacturing, mining, food and beverage, defense and more. Available in multiple configurations, each system is customizable to suit the application and budget. The scalable, plug-and-play design extends the life of the Work Center, minimizing downtime and increasing efficiency. In addition, the palletized, fully assembled pods allow for quick set-up and efficient transport.
After years of delivering strong results, OilSafe has become the recognized standard in several key industries. Fluid Defense’s dealer network has a distribution reach into more than 45 countries and is partnered with world-class suppliers.
