Environmentally Friendly Products From Beka-Max of America Fit Right in With Earth Day
This year marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day. This modern environmental movement was first held on April 22, 1970 and ushered in many groundbreaking environmental laws for air and water protection, as well as bringing a heightened awareness to the importance of protecting the planet.
At Beka-Max we understand the importance of Earth Day and what it represents. We engineer our products to be environmentally friendly, as well as user friendly. Our premier automatic lubrication systems require less lubricant than manual systems and are designed to prevent lubricant from spilling and leaking.
Lubrication is a vital part of effective operation for all types of mechanical systems including trucks, heavy equipment, wind turbines, and manufacturing machinery. Many industries rely on automatic lubrication systems that provide safe, high-performance lubrication.
Manual lubrication systems are environmentally unfriendly for a number of reasons. In addition to using more lubricant, machinery and equipment that don’t have automatic grease lubrication systems have the potential to leak and contaminate the surrounding area.
In one instance a homeowner was left with a major grease spill and environmental hazard when a truck arrived to fill the swimming pool. The truck was not equipped with a grease lubrication system and grease ran out of the truck and onto the driveway. This system was not put together properly and, even with protective wood paneling laid over the driveway, the ground was still contaminated and required remediation.
Even when workers are extremely careful in greasing manual systems, grease is messy and has a tendency to fall onto the ground. An automatic lubrication system contains the grease within the system and is a superior method.
If an automatic lubrication system is not possible, we have developed a clean system grease gun for manual greasing applications. Lube-Shuttle® grease guns prevent grease from spilling and leaking onto machines, tools, and the floor. Shop surfaces and workers stay clean with leak-free construction of the Lube-Shuttle® grease gun.
It is our goal at Beka-Max to provide environmentally friendly automatic lubrication systems. Trouble-free systems increase component life while reducing repair costs. For technology that you can rely on, trust in the expert products and people at Beka-Max.
