Pumps no longer leak or break down
Hydraulic lift (Holmatro pumps) to launch ships
These Holmatro pumps are subject to salt and fresh water. It takes 25 pumps to launch a ship. During every launching, 3 to 5 pumps leak or fail to reach the required pressure. Subject to cold / heat, rain, wind and sand.
Since using Interflon Food Lube H32, the pumps no longer leak. The pumps produce sufficient pressure to lift the ship from its ground position to enable a smooth launching.
Cost savings for each launching:
Costs of revision set 3 x €198 = €594
Hourly wage 3 x 3 hours x €45 = €405
Total savings €999 per launching
Additional price for oil = 4 litres x €42 = €168
€999 - €168 = €831
The average number of launchings every year is 8-10.
Minimal annual saving = €831 x 8 = €6,648
