607 ALMASOLĀ® Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant METROPOLITAN DETROIT AREA HOSPITAL SERVICES, INC., Detroit, MI Poensgen Continuous Flow Washers CUSTOMER PROFILE Metropolitan Detroit Area Hospital Service, Inc. provides laundry services for hospitals in the Detroit area. They have been an LE customer since 1985. APPLICATION In providing laundry services for the Detroit area hospital, MDAHS uses three Poensgen continuous flow washers, model WBS74. These washers wash 1800 lbs. of linen per hour and run 8 1/2 hours per day, five days per week. AREA OF INTEREST While using a commercial grade lubricant they were experiencing excessive chain and sprocket wear. In addition, the nylon ring of the approximately four-foot diameter main bearing was wearing out prematurely. They had to replace the 1 1/2" chain and sprocket every two years at a cost of $1500 in parts and four to five hours of downtime. The large nylon ring was replaced every four years at a cost of $6,000 and eight hours downtime. LE SOLUTION LE's 607 ALMASOL Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant was recommended for both applications as it is formulated for heavy-duty industrial service, has excellent EP (extreme pressure) characteristics and is long-lasting in service. CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS Since November of 1982, when Metropolitan Detroit Area Hospital Service installed all new parts and converted to LE's 607, they have not had to replace any chains, sprockets or nylon bearing rings. That was over 16 years ago. To date they have saved over $5,000 a year in replacement chain and sprocket costs and the associated 20 to 25 hours downtime. They have also eliminated two nylon ring replacements and 16 hours downtime. This is a minimum of $80,000 savings in replacement parts alone.
