生物食品级润滑油全面取代合成油进入比萨厂

瑞安勃食品级润滑油全面应用于比萨厂

食品级润滑油用于面点制作

DONATOS,美国著名的比萨供应商,总部位于美国俄亥俄州,由Donatos比萨、180建连锁餐厅和产品零售店,Jane’s面包食品,一个比萨饼和面团产品制造厂。公司年销售额超过USD10M,2010年预计达到20M美元销售额。该工厂2009年生产的比萨饼超过150万,2010年将超过230万个。2009 年生产的面团在1070万磅,而2010年将达到1540万磅,目前的生产能力为5百万个比萨和2600万磅的面团。

2009年开始使用合成润滑油并取得了良好的效果,但是DONATOS并没有就此停止,2010年,他们停止使用合成润滑油,而全面采用了生物基食品级润滑油。自从工厂使用生物基的润滑油脂后,没有出现轴承或齿轮箱故障,无故障运行时间、润滑油寿命及零件寿命仍然在不断刷新旧的标准。 一般零件以前使用500至1000小时后换油,而现在是2000到3000小时,而且仍然没有问题。用油的种类也大大减少,降低了管理成本。

除了这些,工厂还由于生物基润滑油的环保特性而减少了垃圾处理费,并大大提高了企业的社会形象。

工厂采用的润滑油主要有:

– RLI生物食品级齿轮油(ISO32-460),用于齿轮和直角齿轮箱

– RLI生物食品级通用润滑油(SAE 20,NSFH1、3H),用于各种应用

– BPL食品级渗透润滑剂(NSF H1,H2),用于润滑和防腐蚀

– RLI生物食品级极压润滑脂(NLGI #0,#1,#2),用于食品加工和包装机械

striking oil
Farm couple’s business slides past petroleum

Story by Seth Teter | Photos by Bryan Rinnert

Before oil prices flirted with $150 per barrel, and before “go green” became the mantra of so many marketing campaigns, Bill and Jackie Garmier were getting the wheels turning.

Bill was a whiz in the industrial lubricants industry and Jackie shared his entrepreneurial spirit. In the early 1990s, the Portage County farm couple began exploring ways to make lubricating oils that were both environmentally friendly and derived from domestic, renewable sources.

“We’re agricultural people, so this made good sense,” Bill said.

A Department of Defense contract to create a homegrown oil product put things into motion, and the couple launched their business, Renewable Lubricants Inc.

“In the beginning, there was a lot of skepticism,” Bill said of his effort to offer alternatives to petroleum. “We pioneered this more or less.”

But when a champion drag racer blew past the competition with corn oil in his engine, many skeptics got on board. From the beginning, it has been a similar process of critics becoming believers as Renewable Lubricants continued its research and development of earth-friendly products.

“We know we have to compete with high-quality petroleum products,” said Jackie, the company president.

It seems they are up to the challenge. Renewable Lubricants offers more than 150 biobased and biodegradable products that are used worldwide in everything from high-tech submarines to high-performance engines. The oil comes from crops such as corn, soybeans, sunflowers and canola. The company now boasts that it is the world leader in its industry.

“What better business could you be in that helps the environment, that helps farmers,” Jackie said.

Lubricating oils are a 16-billion-gallon per year market, so there is plenty of room to grow, Bill said. And when oil prices spiked last year, it got everyone’s attention.

“We have people that call in and say ‘Enough is enough, we have to look for alternatives,’” he said.

The couple also cites an estimate that 100 million gallons of lubricating and hydraulic oils are leaked into the environment each year. Garbage trucks, for example, are prone to leak hydraulic oil and clean-up can be expensive, Jackie said. But a switch to a biodegradable product could ease this problem.

Municipalities and park departments across the nation are among those making the switch to Renewable Lubricants either on a test-basis or full scale. The local transit authority is also on board. The Garmiers even specially formulated a hydraulic fluid for the BMW Oracle regatta racing team. Now they are focused on swaying the state of Ohio to take steps to becoming a little greener.

“We’d like Ohio to become the renewable, green jewel of the Northeast,” Jackie said.

Earlier this year, the Ohio Department of Agriculture celebrated Ohio Agriculture Day at the Garmiers’ farm, and Department Director Robert Boggs called their operation “a shining example of how traditional agriculture fits into our nation’s overall movement to meet our ever-growing demands for fuel, energy, and other petroleum-based products.”

The Garmiers say the most satisfying part of what they do is being able to help others.

“It’s been a fun business to be in because it’s clean, it’s helping our agricultural side, it’s keeping our money at home,” Bill said.

As concerns about the environment and foreign oil seem be increasing, the Garmiers say they are well-positioned to provide solutions.

“We believe the business is really going to explode,” Jackie said.

美国大湖区使用生物基润滑油以保护环境

轻轻的踏在大湖区上

使用生物基产品以保护大湖区环境安全

植物油润滑油应用

多种多样哺乳动物、两栖类、爬行类、鸟类和鱼类在五大湖流域形成了一个复杂的生态系统。北部,著名的茂密的阔叶林保持了坚实的木材和造纸工业,而在南部,沼泽和湿地提供了鲜明的对比,并支持一个庞大的野生动物目录。作为世界上最大的淡水表面积,除了大湖的资源,每天为市政、农业和工业用途提供56亿加仑的水,是名副其实的聚宝盆。

大湖区的工业化始于20世纪初,导致许多有害环境的影响。事实上,伊利湖的一部分已经死了。然而,今天,许多被证明是破坏性的做法正在减少,清洁、健康和保护为重点的新的举措蓄势待发。这就是生物基产品的用武之地。

国家大气和海洋管理局(NOAA)的研究船及小型船的船队,已取代石油基产品而使用生物柴油和生物可降解液压油,传动液,维护润滑剂和清洁剂。NOAA是一个联邦机构,负责生态系统管理,天气预报,数据采集,商业和交通运输的可持续的做法。它率先在海洋应用中使用生物柴油作为其身份和使命的一部分。

NOAA的五大湖环境研究实验室(GLERL)马斯基和密歇根州安阿伯的设施,设置“绿色船舶倡议经营作为其主要目标完全石油的船只。”在倡议中所使用的船只是在联邦舰队先上运行的B100。 “我们是100%的生物基,”丹尼斯·多纳休说GLERL。 “我们的车队发起生物柴油逐步由船。在我们的实验室,还有约40艘船参与绿色船舶倡议。”

一直在海洋应用中使用生物燃料的GLERL的研究的重点之一。多纳休和公司所有的处理和后勤问题,涉及生物柴油,如低温流动性、存储稳定性和市场供应,取得了宝贵的经验。 “当我们刚开始在产品有显着增加,”多纳休说。 “在密歇根州需要的B100的2号柴油第二天就可以交付,是整个国家最丰富的。”这可以归结为B20的需求增加和生产能力的增长,这也有助于降低成本,创造增加分销网络。目前,GLERL使用Crystal Flash公司的生物柴油。

治理生病的海洋

GLERL作为NOAA的部门,是致力于研究和随后解决一些环境问题一直困扰大湖,包括外来物种入侵,侵蚀,氮径流和交通污染物。多纳休说,“在过去的7年中,已建成”绿色船舶倡议增强现场经验与生物柴油“的发动机,广泛设计和装备船舶。

百分百的生物基

瑞安勃润滑油公司(Renewable Lubricants,Inc)在俄亥俄州,一直供应船舶可降解的液压油、传动液和其他可再​​生的机械润滑油,保持船的平稳运行。使在船上用可生物降解的植物油,像曲轴箱油、齿轮箱和液压系统,可以提供额外泄漏或其他意外泄漏事件对环境的保护水平。 “他们开发的,我们在参与使用的柴油发动机机油,” 多纳休说。“他们也有一个后勤和技术支持方案,对我们非常重要。”

瑞安勃,利用大豆、油菜籽、葵花籽和玉米油生产机械用的液体,在设计到生产到使用需要一步步进行实验和测试,以确保道路上车辆或船只从矿物油转换到可再生润滑油过程是简单的,RLI副总裁William·Garmier说 。 “我们注重兼容性,我们希望我们的客户不需要为了转换做重大的冲洗。我们没有任何重大的工作通过他们去做。”

因为在使用生物柴油感兴趣的公司有可能接受其他可再生能源产品,海洋产业已迅速成为市场的热点。 “水周围的城市和其他地区一直在非常积极寻找替代[石油]的产品”Garmier说。 “海洋市场正变得对我们非常好。”

所有这些产品都经过了严格的测试,性能相当于石油同类产品,多纳休说。 “这些都是不能出错、不能失败的系统,”Garmier说。 “如果这些NOAA天气船舶在海上,系统发生故障、失效,而风暴来了,他们需要得到回港,那后果不堪设想。”

生物柴油B100配合生物基润滑油运行性能超过了优于传统产品。值得注意的是,生物柴油的清洁剂效果导致手工清洗需要更少的停机时间,多纳休说。总的来说,生物柴油作为一种溶剂的素质作出了贡献改进燃料系统维护,从而导致发动机性能更好。完全可再生的润滑油和液体的使用一直以峰值性能运行的船舶,同时提供环保措施对泄漏和泄漏。 “植物油将无法在高性能应用中使用的旧观念,被证明是错误的,”Garmier说。

我们为什么选择生物基润滑油

瑞安勃解决了生物基润滑油问题

 

生物润滑油研究

据统计, 在北美每年有超过1亿加仑的润滑油从液压机械和其他润滑设备泄漏出来,这些润滑油的泄漏将会对敏感地区的环境长期造成负面影响。

2002年美国农业安全法案授权政府机构必须优先购买对环境安全的生物基(植物油)润滑油(BioPreferred)。 这给润滑油制造商在润滑油配方上面要求保持性能水平的同时挑战极限,实现最终生物降解。

瑞安勃润滑油与雪佛龙菲利浦化学有限公司共同研究的解决方案,特别设计结合Synfluid™高品质聚α(PAOs)与生物基础油和添加剂,传统的液压油是不能够自然降解,而我们新开发的这个新配方系统达到了最终生物降解级别(ASTM D5864 – PW1),甚至改进了原有性能参数,性能达到了合成油的水平,突破了以前没有尝试过的盲点。

新型生物基润滑油的优点是具有非常高的粘度指数(VI),并大大改善了低温性能,所有这些都有助于节能。这些新的配方可达到所有ISO粘度等级。
