Description of situation

At Riwald Recycling in Almelo, a lot of work is done with grabs on cranes. The cranes and grabs rotate all day long and an extreme amount of force is put on the moving parts. If no proper lubrication or the right product is used, corrosion and wear will occur, ultimately resulting in damage to the grab of the crane.

Product UsageLubricating Greases

By properly lubricating grabs and cranes from day one with Eurol Grease CS-2/103-S, Riwald Recycling prevents downtime for the cranes and saves on repair costs. All bearings and pin-bush connections are lubricated with this grease via a central lubrication system.

Customer testimonial

Bart van Kessel, Business Manager Riwald Recycling: "We have good experiences with this grease and have been using the CS-2/103-S since 2018. We lubricate certain lubrication points by hand every day, we do this with the grease gun. We only need to apply one squeeze of grease and then the part is already well lubricated. We used to use a different grease but it dried out very quickly so we no longer had any lubrication. With the Eurol Specialty grease this will not happen. This grease stays neatly intact despite the hard conditions."
