Dishwashers, washers and dryers, refrigerators, mixers, blenders, and many other appliances have rubber or soft plastic components such as hoses, O-rings, seals, grommets, plugs and more. The slip resistance of these parts makes assembly difficult. P-80® temporary rubber assembly lubricants significantly reduce friction helping these parts slide easily into place. P-80® lubricants are water-based, and do not contain alcohol or petroleum distillates so they will not cause rubber to dry out or harden. P-80® does not contain silicone or other persistent ingredients, so once dry you have a tight fitting part. P-80® lubricants come in a broad range of formulas and sizes to meet all appliance assembly needs. Two, P-80® Emulsion IFC and P-80® THIX IFC, are approved for Incidental Food Contact applications (meeting FDA regulation 21 CFR 178.3570) and are registered with NSF as USDA H1 lubricants.

Rapid, gentle blending maximizes strength of powder metal parts
Nestled in the heart of the powder metal capital of the world, Allegheny Blending Technologies (ABT) specializes in custom blending of ferrous and non-ferrous powder metals that are sold to molders of powder metal parts. These blends of iron powder and additives (copper, nickel, graphite, manganese sulfide and dry lubricants) play important roles in products and equipment. In the U.S. automotive industry, nearly every car has about 25 lb (11 kg) of powdered metal parts ranging from timing gears to anti-lock...
Ultrafiltration reclaims oily process water; reducing operating costs and environmental impact
Challenge An industry-leading manufacturer of industrial-grade fastening systems discovers a better way to recycle washwater - reducing fresh water consumption by 130,000 gallons annually and reclaim machining oil by using PRAB’s Ultrafiltration System. Even as demand for its product continued to increase, the manufacturer took the initiative to identify operational improvements throughout their entire process. These improvements were created to pinpoint efficiency improvements and reduce their environmenta...
Automotive parts manufacturer - Eaton US engine valve case study
ScopeUS Engine Valve in SC had 16 small washing systems that were used to wash parts after machining with straight oil as the metalworking lubricant. These wash tanks were dumped and recharged weekly and the oil concentration in the washers climbed between cycles to 5% before dumping at the end of the week. During this cycle, the part tolerance measuring equipment could be adversely affected as the oil levels would rise, sometimes resulting in parts rejections and rewashing.SolutionAfter an onsite survey and lab...
Heavy Machine Parts Cleaners: The Perfect Option to Maintain Heat Exchangers
Heat exchangers are advanced equipment in industrial settings that help transfer heat from one medium to another efficiently. These days, heat exchangers find use in a wide array of industrial environments, such as petroleum refineries, space heating, sewage treatment, petrochemical plants, natural gas processing, air conditioning, refrigeration, and chemical plants. To guarantee proper functioning, heat exchangers have to be maintained at their best. For this reason, it would be a good idea to invest in heavy...
RYDALL MP doing its part in recycling case study
A waste management company in Canada was experiencing problems removing contaminants from plastic containers that were being cleaned to prepare them for recycling. RYDALL MP was recommended as a solution to these problematic contaminants.RYDALL MP approach RYDALL MP was diluted (10:1) into the parts washer, heated to approximately 120°F and sprayed onto the contaminated plastic for approximately 1 hour, followed by a water rinse. RYDALL MP results Setup allowed good coverage on material passing...
