Dow Corning's Molykote Energy Savings Calculator helps manage energy prices and carbon dioxide emissions

Dow Corning announces the interactive Molykote Energy Savings Calculator, an easy-to-use, online tool that can help plant managers and industrial maintenance engineers manage rising energy prices and carbon dioxide emissions by illustrating the energy and cost savings available through propper lubrication. Improper lubrication creates drag and friction, wasting money and damaging equipment. Correct lubrication strategies improve reliability, can help avoid costly repairs and save energy to reduce harmful CO2 emissions.

The online tool is for plant managers and industrial maintenance engineers who stand to benefit from increased awareness of the importance of lubrication as part of a proactive and planned maintenance program. When users enter the number of motors, gearboxes, pumps, compressors and fans, the kilowatts needed to run them, their efficiency, the hours per day and days per year into the calculator, they are shown potential reductions in kilowatt hours, CO2 emissions and the associated cost savings.

The Molykote Energy Savings Calculator is available online at
