SKF-Quaker Houghton oil reuse collaboration28 July 2022

SKF has entered into a collaboration that will combine Quaker Houghton’s industrial oils and application expertise with SKF RecondOil’s Double Separation Technology (DST) to enable the industry to more efficiently utilize its resources by reducing the unsustainable linear of use of oil.

The circular use of oil will also help reduce the industry’s environmental footprint through a reduction in CO2 emissions, lessen the amount of neat cutting oil purchased, and reduce handling and disposal costs whilst providing significant performance improvements.

The tailored solutions will be offered under fee- or performance-based contracts, helping provide Quaker Houghton and SKF customers with future-oriented offers and facilitate their transition into a circular economy.

Thomas Fröst, president, independent and emerging businesses, says: “Optimised service structures and new business models in factories – seen as ecosystems – will play a central role for all companies. Our collaboration will make reduction of CO2 a reality for the industry, with improved smart factory services, improved process stability, reduced throughput and cycle time resulting in a significant cost reduction.”

The offerings will be introduced gradually throughout Europe, with a long-term aim to offer circular use of oil worldwide.
