604 ALMASOL® VARI-PURPOSE GEAR LUBRICANT  BORDEN COMPANY, INC., SULPHUR SPRINGS, TX  Proprietary Piece of Equipment

CUSTOMER PROFILE: Borden Company, Inc. is located in Sulphur Springs, TX. They process specialty foods such as cottage cheese, dips and sour cream for the dairy industry nationwide. Tommy Childs is the Plant Engineer, and a firm believer in LE products and the exclusive additives MONOLEC®, ALMASOL® and QUINPLEX® that go into the formulation of LE products. They have been an LE customer for eight years.

APPLICATION: A proprietary piece of equipment, designed by Borden Company, Inc. is used in the processing of cottage cheese. A Dodge gearbox drives the unit.

AREA OF INTEREST: While using a commercial grade 80W-90 gear lubricant, they were experiencing failures once or twice a year, and the unit was requiring a monthly drain of the gear lubricant because of moisture in the gearbox.

LE SOLUTION: In 1989, LE Representative Walter Morman recommended the use of LE's 604 ALMASOL Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant for better water separation characteristics, reduced wear and longer oil life. Based on the anticipated extension of drain intervals, and being able to drain water from the gearbox instead of having to change out the gear oil, Tommy Childs agreed to a conversion. After six years on LE's 604 ALMASOL Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant, no failures have been experienced with the gearbox, and the lube has not had to be changed.

CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS: The cost of the commercial grade gear oil over the eight year period was estimated at $960, while LE's 604 ALMASOL Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant cost only $149.00, and the initial change is still in the unit. Tommy Childs is very cost conscious, and is pleased to see that not only is he saving money, he is saving on parts and labor for equipment, and keeping production high.
