Large grease batches usually take longer to make than small grease batches. This is because the vessel’s jacket area does not increase in proportion to the mass of the contents.
Small batches of grease are normally made in a single vessel. However, big batches are quite often made using a two-stage process where saponification (making the soap thickener in oil)
Surprisingly large and advanced manufactures in the chemical industry still physically empty bags of powders into process vessels via the manway. This can create a dust cloud that either contaminates
One of the biggest problems with putting a grease plant into a light industrial unit is the amount of headroom available. Historically, run major companies fitted grease manufacturing plants in
Contrary to intuition, you need simpler and thus cheaper equipment to manufacture the more expensive complex greases, than cheaper mono-soap greases. Calcium grease, the cheapest type, foams badly during saponification
Sometimes it is necessary to change processes to improve productivity. However, there is a concern that the finished product may look different to the customer, even if the performance is
A lubricants manufacturer needed a reliable way to replicate full-scale grease manufacturing processes, used by their production partners, in order to improve product quality. They also needed an in-house
