Consolidate Distiller Of Far East Ltd at Philippines profits on its domestic sales as well as export of the renowned Emperador Brandy. Its 10 professional and simultaneous production lines are regarded as the heart, blood and veins for the entire brandy production cycle. While the production lines are regularly maintained by experienced and trained Consolidate’s staff, there are still times that they need someone who is a true maintenance expert.
Each production line of Emperador Brandy consists of 1 rotating machine with 25 suction tubes. Each of these suction tubes is built with 3 springs. The maintenance challenge is that the springs are always immersed in alcohol and subject to a high degree of corrosion and rusting, thus losing their expected elastic strength for transporting the brandy bottles to the designated positions.
The Genuine Maintenance Expert: OMEGA 64
After trying and failing with a number of products, Mr. Bobby Ayade, the Factory Chief Engineer contacted Mr. John K. Dy, Sales Representative of Spandex Marketing Corporation, Luzon, Philippines for expert maintenance advice. Spandex is the sole distributor in Philippines for OMEGA Maintenance Solutions engineered by Magna Industrial Co. Ltd. John paid a site visit and carried out an inspection as per with an understanding with Mr. Ayade regarding the specific maintenance challenge. OMEGA 64 was recommended to “save” the springs. OMEGA 64 is a scientifically-developed, ultra-tacky, heavy-duty, tenacious and temperature-stable lubricant designed as the ultimate maintenance solution to resist corrosion, rust, contamination, oxidation, pressure and squeeze-out.
The brandy manufacturer would expect a minimum production downtime of 30 minutes to replace only 1 corroded and rusty spring. The entire production line has to be suspended with a production loss of over 1000 bottles of brandy. Extra costs also include overtime pay for workers and the newly installed springs. The accumulated savings resulting from the application of OMEGA 64 to each spring is estimated to be USD9,000.00. The management of Consolidate Distiller certainly appreciated such significant savings in production losses, down time and their maintenance budget when faced with replacing hundreds of these springs in their 10 production lines for Emperador Brandy!
