Lubricant Storage Container Advice

Tags: lubricant storage and handling

Sometimes the most creative ideas are the wrong ideas. Open top-up containers like this are magnets for contaminants and can wreak havoc when used on small sumps.

Consider using a convenient “one-shot” or top-up container. Some oil suppliers can deliver labeled containers filled with prefiltered oil that meets a specified cleanliness level. These disposable containers are convenient, reduce contamination, minimize product mixing and increase the likelihood of proper application (correct oil in the machine).

Hold It!
An alternative storage solution is to buy clean plastic jugs to fill and label yourself. Some containers have a built-in spigot and don’t require a funnel for use. Funnels, like open top-up containers, are magnets for contaminants.
