Return on investment and cost of ownership analysis

Log accumulator for tissue paper using RotaLube automatic chain lubrication system return on investment analysis

Costs incurred each year:

Oil Usage: reduced lubrication usage = 40% – 60% per annum

Replacement chain cost: = circa £7000 replace every 3 years

Replacement chain cost WITH RotaLube fitted: = circa £7000 replaced now every 5-6 years

Cost of RotaLube System: = £3.5K – £5.5K depending on client specification

Based on these costs only ROI can be 190 days – if you include savings on downtime (£15K/hr), chain installation (5 engineers – 12 hours) this investment can pay back in 10’s of days.

All these costs are based on existing installations and facts supplied by customer.

Save money, save time, make more production

If you manufacture rolled tissue products you will have Log Accumulators for tissue paper in the process, the reason for this publication is to make you aware of a unique process that increases the life of your chain. In most installations by a factor of 2 – fact, proven and verified.

Replacement chain cost in the region of £7000 and can cost as much as £13000.

Time taken to replace the chains would normally commit 5 engineers who would take in the region of 12 hours. Scaffolding and height access equipment are also required.

It is not uncommon for the life of the chains on a Log Accumulator to need replacing after 3 years of use. With the addition of a Rotalube System that life can be extended to 6 years.

Rotalube is a unique patented method of applying lubrication ‘little and often’ at the ‘right place on the chain at exactly the right time’. Unaffected by speed change or stop/ start indexing chain systems Rotalube also reduces lubricant volumes substantially AND therefore reduces spend.

A Rotalube system price costs in the region of £3500** (installation, by the user, circa £500, 1/2 day) in most cases the return on investment is in the region of 120 days. Find out more and / or talk to our systems engineers.
