PACKAGING OPTIONS

A BROAD PACKAGE SUPPLY PORTFOLIO HELPS MAKE YOUR DAILY WORK EASIER AND SAFER

Castrol offers a full range of lubricant products, supply modes and services to help you maintain high standards of efficiency and productivity.

FLEXIBLE SUPPLY MODE

Castrol’s lubricants are supplied in varying forms from packages, either as a solid or as a liquid, and can be supplied in small tubes, vessels or large tanks capable of holding thousands of litres of liquid. Our flexible approach means that lubricants can be supplied using a range of different options, including packs that can operate at very high pressures and tanks that hold lubricants at very low temperatures.
All of our supply modes are available in sizes to suit the needs of every business, from the sole trader to the large enterprise – scaling from low-volume through to high-capacity tanks and customisable on-site supply systems. Castrol works with you to match the lubricant supply to your demand.

ENVIRONMENTAL

Environmental legislation plays a role in the packaging industry. Castrol complies with legislation and offers solutions that enhance your own health, safety and environmental offering. These rules apply to fuel oil and any chemical or liquid which could cause a threat to the environment if it comes into contact with the ground. We can work with you to help address ancillary and dispensing equipment too.

For further information on the regulations, contact your local Environment Agency UK : http://www.environment-agency.gov.uk/business/topics/oil/default.aspx

STORAGE

Vessels should always be handled and stored properly according to the Safety Data Sheet recommendation to avoid contamination and deterioration. Moisture, dust, fumes, temperature and shelf life could all affect the quality and performance of your lubricant. Care should be taken when handling your lubricant package.
