Most petroleum-based lubricants stored in ambient-controlled conditions (not suffering temperature swings) last for 30 years. However, most lubricants stored on drilling rigs are exposed to the elements and subjected to extreme temperature swings; allowing moisture, foreign material and other contaminants to enter the storage containers, resulting in reduced lube life and effectiveness. The end result: shortened equipment life and even failures. Properly storing lubricants and lube equipment can greatly extend their life and effectiveness. However, finding a dedicated, safe and spill proof area on a rig can be extremely challenging.
ADS insulated lubricants storage units offer mobile, spill proof storage rooms delivered directly to your rig. The units are insulated, well lit and heated. Just supply power and your lubricants are safely housed in a temperature controlled, easy to use, spill proof unit.
