SKF partnership with Castrol will offer ‘Oil as a Service’
SKF has partnered with Castrol, one of the world’s leading lubricant brands, to expand its RecondOil offer, The partnership will enable Castrol industrial customers to use integrated RecondOil Double Separation Technology (DST) systems.
Castrol and SKF’s partnership will see them offer ‘Oil as a Service’ through the integration of SKF’s RecondOil offer with Castrol’s metalworking lubricants to recondition used fluids. This enables circular use of the lubricant fluid, reducing consumption while improving machine performance.
SKF’s RecondOil Double Separation Technology (DST) can be used in neat oil manufacturing processes. It reconditions used fluids and recirculates them back into the metalworking process, reducing consumption and handling of the oil, while improving machine performance in the process.
“We are committed to helping customers save waste, reduce carbon and improve people’s lives, our partnership with SKF RecondOil is a great example of how collaboration can further support customers to deliver on their sustainability goals,” said Kamuran Yazganoglu, vice president, Industrial, Marine and Energy at Castrol.
“We recognise the importance of circularity within industrial processes, and our partnership with Castrol is another step towards making this a reality. By combining SKF RecondOil and Castrol lubrication fluid technology, we can offer ‘Oil as a Service’ solutions that help reduce waste, save energy and improve manufacturing processes,” said Thomas Fröst, president, Independent andEmerging Businesses at SKF.
The combined service will be offered through fee- and performance-based contracts, initially targeting the metalworking industry.
