Oil leaks from hydraulic powered machinery cost money. Typically, a medium tonnage injection molder can leak one once per hour, which can amount to 45-68 gallons per year, based on machine usage.
Efficient collection of oil leaking through hydraulic seals deliver the following benefits:
- Clean work environment – good housekeeping is a sign of efficient manufacturing.
- Improved plant safety through elimination of oil leaks creating hazardous conditions.
- Decrease in spoilage of manufactured products.
- Reuse of lost oil.
