Ryland Research - Grease Plant in Turkey

The customer wanted to diversify into grease manufacture because of an increasing domestic demand.

They wanted to manufacture a wide product range, therefore we designed and built the plant to be capable of manufacturing:

  • Lithium Grease (Mono-Soap and Complex)
  • Calcium Grease (Hydrated and Anhydrous)
  • Aluminium Stearate Grease
  • Bentone Grease
  • Sodium Grease

This was the first plant that we built to include a pressurised kettle with thermal oil heating and cooling.  It also featured a novel waste heat recovery system that took heat removed from the batch cooling phase and used it to pre-heat the base oil for the next batch.
