This forestry machinery manufacturer was taking fluids to the assembly operations in tote tanks and portable carts. The process was cumbersome, time consuming and presented several safety issues.
The customer installed two 10,000 liter bulk oil tanks and pneumatic pumps to deliver the fluids to the assembly stations. The distance from the pump stations to the furthest dispense station is 700 ft. Each dispense station is equipped with a 5 micron filter, 50 ft. spring rewind hose reel and digital, hand held liter meter. The customer added a level monitoring system for the tanks.
The customer feels that the system paid for itself in 1½ years through reduced handling costs and improved production efficiencies.
