In the webinar moderated by Selçuk Akat, Aydın Güney from Mobil Oil Türk A.Ş. Commercial Lubricants Sales and Field Engineering Team, discussed the criteria that should be taken into account for selecting the right product. He mentioned the importance of operating conditions and the goals of management since cost should not be taken as the only criterion when making a choice. In his presentation, which explains the effect of product choices on the balance sheet, he emphasized that by choosing the right product the need for annual oil and grease can be reduced, the cost of maintenance-repair, spare parts and consumables can be decreased, and energy consumption can be minimized.
Aytaç Duran emphasized the importance of choosing the right engine oil. He underlined that invisible costs should be handled as well as the visible costs when making a product decision. Stating that the price of oil is only the tip of the iceberg, Duran said there are various other cost items under the tip of the iceberg, such as equipment life, spare parts consumption, oil consumption, maintenance-repair costs, environmental regulations, spare equipment, production loss, unplanned downtimes, inventory costs, difficult initial operation, fuel consumption and safety.
Providing information about storage conditions for hydraulic oils, Ali Burak Kosif stated that proper storage is important in terms of cost, safety and ease of use. Kosif gave information about the performance criteria sought in hydraulic oils, and he emphasized the effect of hydraulic oils on equipment life and performance. In this context, he said that proper storage and handling can bring better profitability.
Ömer Koyuncu, on the other hand, discussed the conditions for the efficient use of greases. He talked about what needs to be done to do more with less grease. Mentioning the advantages that can be gained in the context of safety, efficiency and environment with planned engineering services, Koyuncu explained that they prepare an annual work plan to use the equipment and time in the most efficient way.
