Nowadays the lubrication demands and expectations for vehicles and machinery is greater than it has ever been. Designed to maximise performance and fuel economy in tough operating conditions and minimise component wear and tear, using the right quality oil and finding the right type of lubricant for the many types of equipment and machinery is absolutely vital.
Qualube is the Brand name for our range of quality Lubricants, oils and greases. As you will see from this website, Qualube lubricants offer an extensive range of specific products for specific industry uses. All our products meet the latest and highest Original Equipment Manufacturers approved requirements. They are designed to advance both the performance of the machinery as well as reduce the emissions, maintenance, and wear and tear of the working parts. Driving further efficiencies in fuel economy our technical teams work hard in their laboratories to ensure the latest technologies maximise results whatever the application.
Early machinery offered limited applications but these days more sophisticated equipment often requires high power at low speeds and also compliance to the latest emission standards. Therefore the importance of efficient, reliable lubricants to satisfy the latest technology is an every changing platform.
Meticulously made to the latest specifications and demands of the vehicle and machinery manufacturers, the correct quality lubricants can make a real difference to the performance and longevity of applications.
Not having enough oil or using the wrong oil causes up to 10% of all machinery and vehicle break downs. This means down time in the field or on the road and unnecessary increased maintenance costs whilst the problem is resolved.
When choosing the right oil for your vehicle or machinery it is vital that you consider the following:
1. Does your oil manufacturer have approvals from the OEM? This helps ensure that warranty conditions are not jeopardised and servicing costs are kept to a minimum.
2. Have you got the right quality and type of oil for the right application?
3. Does your oil manufacturer comply with the standards of the European & UK Lubricant Industry? Looking for endorsements such as membership of the UKLA (United Kingdom Lubricant Association), and signatories to the ATIEL European Letter of Conformance plus membership of the VLS (Verification of Lubrication Specification) provide a credible and trusted independent means to verify lubricant companies. By being a part of these initiatives brings transparency to the lubricant market place and protect and educate the end user.
