High-Performance Lubricants (HPL)
When choosing a lubricant for your application, you have two options:
Companies and management have traditionally treated lubricants as a commodity. Because of this, they were convinced that lubricants should be changed at a regular frequency, and therefore, purchased at the lowest possible price.
Lubricant manufacturers, to obtain these low costs, have chosen to use lower cost-base oils and reduced additives (the expensive part of lubricants) to levels that allow them to provide minimal protection. This in turn requires more frequent lubricant changes to maintain adequate protection for your equipment.
Seldom does your equipment operate exactly as designed. In today’s operating model, equipment is often pushed to or beyond its design limits. Gears, bearings, and related parts are routinely strained and worked to capacity. And this means the lubricants used to protect these assets are also driven to their limits.
Why would you choose a lubricant that “just meets” the requirements of your equipment’s original design? HPL’s are designed to perform above and beyond standard cost-based lubricants. And HPL’s offered by PBM Services Co., LLC offer superior based oils and improved additive packages.
