Environmental impact through hydrocarbon contamination in mining is of increasing concern these days. It is estimated that more than two hundred million gallons of used oil is wasted or incorrectly disposed of each year (Source: American Petroleum Institute) therefore, the time is now to start reconciling your lubricant usage and to deploy safe and reliable disposal with the purpose of conserving natural resources and improving energy efficiency.
In an effort to produce systems and equipment which promote the controlled handling of lubricants and fuel, Industrial Fluid Solutions in conjunction with US based Flomax International, has developed the IFS centralised lubrication panel which serves as an ergonomically correct access point for managing fuel and lubricants on mobile plant. The robust design serves to ensure the safe and easy transfer of fluids while keeping the environment in mind.
Hydrocarbon management and fluid transfer systems are becoming increasingly critical in modern mining practice, to not only protect the bottom line, but to protect the planet through responsible corporate citizenship.
