Constantly growing demands on machines as well as environmental protection, have led PANOLIN to continuously expand the catalogue of requirements for their products and to improve the formulation of the hydraulic fluids for a variety of industries. In rail technology, lubricants play an important role in the reliable operation of vehicles and infrastructure.
Sustainability has been a priority since PANOLIN was founded. PANOLIN with its High Performance Environmentally Considerate Lubricants as well as sustainable and novel concepts, has made its contribution to the environmentally friendly use of machines in the world for decades.
This thinking lies behind PANOLIN's sustainable "GREENMACHINE" concept symbolised by a green CO2 footprint. It aims to use machines, that are as environmentally friendly as possible, with the highest level of technical safety and the best economy. When a machine uses biodegradable lubricants at as many lubrication points as possible, it is classified, a GREENMACHINE.
Decades ago, the first rail machines were filled with PANOLIN HLP SYNTH. The worldwide established PANOLIN HLP SYNTH, is formulated based on saturated esters and enables a service life that is five to ten times longer, compared with mineral-based hydraulic oils.
"This not only protects the environment, but also the operators' wallet," said Harry Gettings, regional business development manager, Asia Pacific, at PANOLIN International. "Reducing costs as well as increasing reliability and sustainability - a never-ending issue in rail technology and other industries. PANOLIN has been pursuing these topics for decades with renowned and globally proven products."
HLP SYNTH E is another high-performance hydraulic fluid from PANOLIN. With similar service levels to HLP SYNTH, this lubricant oil is certified by global and local eco-labels, ensuring that applications can meet local regulatory requirements. This is particularly important for rail in areas such as Sweden where HLP SYNTH E helps Swedish rail companies comply with the Swedish Standard.
PANOLIN hydraulic oils have sustainability at the core of their design and so the HLP SYNTH and HLP SYNTH E products both contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions and are readily biodegradable.
