PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT Matrix ® EP is an extreme pressure, calci- um sulfonate complex grease that extends lubrication frequency using less product, preventing premature wear. It protects your equipment against heat, high load, corrosion or infrequent lubrication in difficult applications and conditions far beyond conventional grease. Ideal applications include industrial bearings, u-joints, ball joints, pin and bushing pivot points on heavy equipment. Envirolube ® XE Extreme is an open gear, tclp-safe, non-asphaltic lubricant that continues to lead industry as one of the most high-performance and recom- mended open gear lubricants. It takes wear protection to a revolutionary level by extending the life of even the most severely loaded open gears and ensures cost savings through reduced friction, temperature and load. Ideal applications include heavily loaded open gears on ball mills and kilns. STANDARDS "Our company maintains a strong empha- sis on product quality throughout its operations. This begins with the com- pany's entire staff ranging from its R&D team to its production staff and sales force. We utilize lean manufacturing techniques, there's been a pretty heavy emphasis on this for the last 10 years, and it's advancing every day," Doug Reid, VP of Product Development says. CHANGE & GROWTH Whitmore and Jet-Lube continue devel- oping and innovating new products, equipment and services. "As the min- ing industry continues to be subject to changes, we adapt and provide the best solutions to challenges for our customer base. We focus our product development on applications where the current technology is not meeting the demands, especially those processes with assets operating under extreme conditions. Our company plans to con- tinue investing more in markets within North America, as well as International expansion," Joel Garrett, VP of Global Sales explains. /
