Through a site survey, lubrication points were identified and lubrication streamlining takes place. Through the information consolidated from different sites globally, for the same machine element/component, Klüber Lubrication recommends the correct amount and type of lubricants to be used to extend both the relubrication cycle as well as reduce labour hours required.
The result from phase one of the project aims to extend lifetime of the equipment, extend lubrication intervals and also ensure that the components are running efficiently (energy efficiency) while reducing unscheduled downtime. For components that are identified as areas where energy saving can be further enhanced, Klüber Lubrication’s energy study will be evaluated by their trained specialist and if the parameters are favorable for further saving with the help of speciality lubricants, on-site measurements will be taken and data will be consolidated and presented to their customer.
Klüber's Lubrication’s products are being used throughout the Nestlé Singapore plant especially in the food processing areas. Equipment such as blenders, mixer, conveyors & packers generally consist of bearings, gearboxes and hydraulics in which Klüber Lubricants are applied. Besides the production equipment, Klüber Lubricants production also brings down the energy usage of air compressors, refrigeration compressors and cooling towers.
With the Klüber Efficiency Support there are 3% Energy Savings, 2% Labor savings, 1% Spares Savings; reduction of water consumption, reduced energy consumption and thus less energy costs and operating costs.
About the Energy Efficiency Award Challenge
The Energy Efficiency Award Challenge was organized by the Singaporean-German Chamber of Industry and Commerce in June 2018. The Award Challenge intended to promote successful German-Singaporean partnerships in the building sector. The five projects that have been selected show how innovative German energy-efficient solutions have led to increased building quality, reduced energy costs and lower CO2 emissions levels in Singaporean buildings.
The one-day event comprised two site visits in the morning, a workshop in the afternoon and an evening reception. At the evening reception three of the five projects that made it to the finals have been awarded for the use energy-efficient technologies “made in Germany”.
The Energy Efficiency Award Challenge is part of the German Energy Solutions Initiative of the German Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy to recognise the positive impact German solutions have on Singapore’s efforts to become more energy efficient.
