6803 MULTILEC® INDUSTRIAL OIL SUNSHINE MILLS, INC., TUPELO, MS Quincy 490, 100 hp Compressor CUSTOMER PROFILE Sunshine Mills, Inc. is a pet food manufacturer that services the southern United States. They have been an LE customer since 1995. APPLICATION Sunshine Mills uses a 100 hp Quincy 490 Compressor to supply air to the entire plant. This compressor runs 5 days a week, 24 hours a day. The compressor room always has a very high humidity, high temperature and a lot of dust. AREA OF INTEREST While using a commercial grade oil, the compressor was getting extremely short oil life. Alvin Simpson, Maintenance Foreman and Jerry Simpson, Parts Manager were wanting to extend the oil life for this compressor. Sunshine Mills was also experiencing high electrical bills and was very interested in energy savings. They are paying $0.15 kWh, and have an arrangement with the local power company to provide emergency back-up power in the event of a power failure. LE SOLUTION LE Representative Jammie Turner recommended LE's 6803 MULTILEC Industrial Oil for the compressor. LE's 6803 is a truly multi-functional, heavy-duty R&O and anti-wear industrial oil suitable for air compressors, hydraulics, bearings, industrial turbines and R&O gear applications. It is compounded with premium paraffinic base stocks for greater lubricity, has outstanding rust and oxidation resistance and excellent water separation ability. LE's 6803 has an anti-wear additive for increased gear and bearing life and is formulated to combat acid hydrolysis in rotary screw compressors. It also contains MONOLEC®, LE's exclusive wear-reducing additive. LE Representative Jammie Turner presented LE's ZAP Energy Saving Program, as a means to help Sunshine Mills save on electrical energy and save money. CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS LE's 6803 MULTILEC Industrial Oil is now being used in the Quincy 490 compressor and it is doing a fantastic job. Oil consumption and waste oil disposal has been cut considerably. TEMPERATURE WAS REDUCED BY 29.8ºF…AMPERAGE WAS REDUCED BY 20.6 AMPS The following Energy Savings Analysis formula is used to find the cost of a unit's electrical consumption. This is the same formula used by the local utility company. .Volts x Amperage Reduction x 1.73* = kW Savings kW Savings x Hours of Operation Per Year= kWh Savings kWh Savings x Electrical Charge = Energy Savings Per Year *Conversion factor for a 3-Phase Power Source .480 x 20.6 x 1.73 = 17.11 17.11 x 6240 = 106,766.40 106,766.40 x .15 = $16,014.96 LE's 6803 MULTILEC® INDUSTRIAL OIL SAVED $16,014.96 ON ELECTRICAL POWER CONSUMPTION ANNUALLY OTHER PRODUCTS USED Sunshine Mills, Inc also uses LE's 1250 ALMASOL® High Temperature Lubricant in their bearing applications and LE's 704 MONOLEC® Gear Lubricant in their gear applications.
