The benefits of advanced fluid management on a 200 litres mobile drum
With advanced fluid management on a 200 litres mobile drum, you can control and monitor your fluid dispenses.
By adding advanced fluid management to your 200 litres mobile drum unit, you can control and monitor every dispense made. It is the first step to more efficient processes on the work floor and in the office, leading to important cost reductions, year after year.
A typical workshop has an oil room with big fluid tanks that contain 1.000 to 2.500 litres. To facilitate fast and efficient oil dispenses, most workshops also use some mobile drum units of 200 litres.
Why Mobile drum units are popular on the work floor
Mobile drum units are becoming increasingly popular on the work floor because of several reasons.
- Workshops must have more and more different types of oil in store
The number of different oil types on the market keeps increasing because more and more manufacturers produce new engines that require a specific oil type. It is not profitable to store every possible oil type in big tanks, as this would require an enormous purchase budget.
- Mobile drum units save time on the work floor
A small mobile drum unit can be easily replaced from one point to another, allowing easy and fast dispensing on multiple vehicles. Mobile dispense units and drums reduce extra steps, time and hassle for technicians.
The challenges of 200 litres mobile drum units
Although mobile drum units provide a lot of benefits, they also bring along some extra challenges.
- Lack of control
When using 200 litres drum units, everyone in your workshop has access to your valuable fluids, making it impossible to control your fluid dispenses. Who has made a dispense? What amount of which fluid was dispensed and why? When did the dispense occur?
- Inefficient billing process
If you don’t know what is happening on the work floor, it is difficult to determine how much you should invoice to your customer.
- Incorrect dispenses
In a busy workshop, mistakes are easily made. When technicians use the wrong or too much oil, your valuable fluid is being lost. Did you know that many workshops find on average 12% loss of total oil volume each year? That means a total annual loss of almost € 10.000.
Why use advanced fluid management on a 200 litres mobile drum unit?
By adding advanced fluid management to your 200 litres mobile drum unit, you can control and monitor every dispense made. Because technicians are only allowed to dispense against a valid work order, you know exactly what is happening on your work floor and how much you must charge to which customer. Advanced fluid management is the first step to more efficient processes on the work floor and in the office, leading to important cost reductions.
