Industrial Lubricants: What Is Causing Your Oil Leaks?


If you’re in an industrial setting, you know leaks present a serious threat to plant efficiency.  Leaks represent a huge cost to your operation by wasting industrial lubricants and metalworking fluids, putting unnecessary wear on equipment with inadequate lubrication, and causing potential safety hazards as oil leaks onto the plant floor.

What could be causing your leaks? The most obvious culprits include:


  • Seal incompatibility, seal swell and seal shrinkage or wear.
  • Hose rubs or internal hose wear from high pressure turbulent flow.
  • Oxidation or loosened fittings from vibrations
