The chemical industry is diverse, encompassing a whole range of activities. Each has its own special requirements, but across the board, keeping machinery running is vital to profitability. With our unique position in the market, as both a producer of petrochemical products and a lubricant supplier, Total is ideally positioned to develop solutions that benefit operations across the breadth of the industry. We’ll help you increase productivity, improve energy efficiency, protect your equipment and optimise its performance.
At Total we understand the challenges companies face in the chemical industry. A continuous process needs to function across your plant, and shutdowns cost money. The conditions could involve explosive, corrosive, toxic and flammable compounds, in addition to extremes of temperature and pressure. Various gasses might be used or produced that can affect machine function. And, there are important environmental, hygiene and safety regulations.
Operating in over 150 countries, and with over 40 years of experience serving the chemical industry, we offer a wide array of products that meet and exceed international specifications. For instance, our NSF registered food grade products are designed specifically to comply with regulations as applied to the manufacture of polymers for food packaging. And, we have dedicated customer service and technical assistance teams to help you find the solution you need.
With research facilities around the world, we’re committed to developing lubricants suitable for the latest equipment. Our products are designed for durability, and to protect your machinery, optimise performance and reduce operating costs. Worker safety and environmental sustainability are a key part of our commitment, and we always meet or exceed regulatory standards. All our work has resulted in a whole selection of high quality products covering:
- Compressor and process lubricants
- Food grade lubricants
- LDPE hypercompressor lubricants
- Heat transfer fluids
- Speciality greases
With Total as your lubricants partner, you can improve your competitiveness in a number of ways. Our ANAC service helps you monitor the mechanical condition of your machinery by analysing its oil. You don’t have to take it apart – our labs can tell you what’s working and what isn’t so you can reduce shutdowns and breakages, and extend the life of your machinery. With Total’s TIG 6 software, you can easily manage your maintenance schedule, including lubricant changes. It even works on smartphones. And we have a range of other tailor-made services such as on-site technical assistance and training, and a lubricant audit to help rationalise your lubricant inventory and ordering process. With our support, you can lower the total cost of ownership of your equipment in the long and short term.
We’ve worked with all the major equipment manufacturers for many years, developing lubricants for current and future technologies in the sector. With Total you can have optimum performance now and in the future, as you adopt new machinery with improved standards. Our facilities are certified to ISO 9001 requirements, and our R&D teams develop products that minimise toxicity and environmental impact. We’re at the forefront in developing biolubricants, using sustainable resources to make biodegradable products where possible, and we design for energy efficiency.
