Sugar

Products, services and advice to keep operations in the sugar industry working flawlessly during the cane-harvesting season.

Due to its cyclical nature, with factories operating in windows of four to six months, we know it’s essential that plants work flawlessly in these periods. 

We know that downtime and application failure brought about by factors such as excessive moisture, high temperatures, contaminations, heavy loads and long periods of operation can effect productivity and ultimately, prove costly.

This is why our Liquid Engineers use lubricant and applications expertise  to develop products that help mitigate these risks. 

Our range of products and services can be applied across mill brasses, open gear applications, bearings, turbines and gearboxes and are designed to help extend equipment life, extend periods between maintenance checks and therefore increase productivity.

So, whatever your challenge, our experts will help you choose the right products to suit your specific needs.
