The strain on our engines is so considerable that after around 250 working hours, a complete change of lubricants is generally needed. Dex’s nanolubricant changes the rules of the game: we’ve already clocked up more than 2,400 working hours and it’s still doing its job. The engine runs more smoothly and the oil is still in excellent condition.
Frequently asked questions
Does using your lubricant affect the warranty on my equipment?
No, because the nano-enrichment process does not affect the chemical composition of the base oil. And any additives contained in the product recommended by your equipment’s manufacturer can be included in our lubricant. So in effect, you will still be using a product that meets the exact specifications set by the manufacturer.
How are Dex Premium Lubricants made?
The base oil of our lubricants is produced in our own, dedicated enrichment plant in the Netherlands. This is where the nano-enrichment process takes place, using a procedure tested and certified by independent parties. Any additives needed to achieve the exact specifications of your lubricant are added by our partner Transnational Blenders in their Dordrecht production facility.
What’s the difference between one of your lubricants and a regular product based on additives?
The difference is that our lubricants have been fundamentally enriched before additives are mixed in. Whereas additives change the chemical composition of a lubricant, our enrichment process takes place on the nano level and instead targets the way the oil itself behaves. It’s this enrichment step that causes significantly reduced friction.
Can you quantify the potential efficiency gains I may expect when using your lubricants?
The actual efficiency gains are determined by a range of variables. So with the right information about your equipment and working processes, we can estimate the potential savings. In our own realistic practice performance test, we recorded a 20% reduction in zero load losses.
What do you need in order to produce an enhanced lubricant to the same specifications as the product I use now?
The name of the lubricant you now use is enough, since European law stipulates that the ingredients of lubricants are made public for each commercially available product. Our partnership with Transnational Blenders, one of Europe’s largest independent oil blenders, ensures a final product that meets the exact same specifications as the product you now use.
