SKF and Castrol partner to offer access to circular use of industrial lubricants

SKF has partnered with Castrol, which will enable Castrol industrial customers to use integrated RecondOil Double Separation Technology (DST) systems from SKF. This partnership will see the companies offer ‘Oil as a Service’ by integrating SKF’s RecondOil offer with Castrol’s metalworking lubricants to recondition used fluids.

SKF’s RecondOil Double Separation Technology (DST) is a new technology for industrial oil regeneration. It can be used in neat oil manufacturing processes. It reconditions used fluids and recirculates them back into the metalworking process, reducing consumption and handling of the oil while improving machine performance in the process. Apart from the metalworking industry, DST can be used in pulp and paper, mining, general manufacturing, marine and more.

Kamuran Yazganoglu, Vice President of Industrial, Marine and Energy at Castrol said, “We are committed to helping customers save waste, reduce carbon and improve people’s lives. Our partnership with SKF RecondOil is a great example of how collaboration can further support customers to deliver on their sustainability goals.”

Thomas Fröst, President of Independent and Emerging Businesses at SKF, said, “We recognize the importance of circularity within industrial processes, and our partnership with Castrol is another step towards making this a reality. By combining SKF RecondOil and Castrol lubrication fluid technology, we can offer ‘Oil as a Service’ solutions that help reduce waste, save energy and improve manufacturing processes.”

The combined service will be offered through fee- and performance-based contracts, initially targeting the metalworking industry.
