Becoming more environmentally sustainable and adopting more responsible business practices are strategic objectives of most beverage producers, from carbonated soft drinks and bottled water to beer and cider and from large global brands to small craft brewers.
Our technology has been helping our customers in those sectors meet their sustainability targets by reducing water consumption, waste-water treatment, energy usage, CO2 emissions and wasted fallen packages*.
The biggest contribution to environmental sustainability our technology makes is in reduced water consumption. Our lubricant is applied in concentrated optimised volumes, eliminating the use of water in conveyor lubrication 100%.
Our optimised volumes application approach ensures that there is no excess lubricant and as a result waste-water treatment of line lubrication product is no longer required.
Our lubricants are safe in the event of a catastrophic contamination. Access the findings from aerobic and anaerobic tests here.
Our optimal lubricant volume distribution controls coefficient of friction values to manage package stability along the conveyor. This helps reduce load and strain on conveyor motors which reduces energy consumption by around 10% on plastic belt and 7% on stainless steel.
Waste-water treatment of wet lube emits around 952 grams of CO2 per litre of solution. By eliminating this requirement as substantial volume of CO2 emissions can be reduced. Furthermore, CO2 emissions are reduced as a result of reduced power consumption.
Our customers have reported improved package stability after switching to Dry Lube, especially when filling iconic or inverse tapered bottles.
A UK brewery reported a reduction in can losses from 1% to 0.7% in the 1st year since Dry Lube install and a Romanian soft drinks producer reported 73% reduction in fallen bottles since introduction of Dry Lube system.
