RETURNING PROFIT TO THE FARM
The use of Lantos natural lanolin products on Agricultural equipment helps to extend the equipment life cycle, resulting in significant cost savings. Lantos Coatings lanolin products form a protective barrier that inhibits corrosion on a molecular level. Lantos Coatings lanolin films will not evaporate, provide robust protection for equipment in use and in storage. It also protects equipment from atmospheric corrosion in the shed.
Lantos Coatings lanolin formulation is classified non-toxic, non-hazardous and environmentally safe. In harsh conditions it retains its film integrity and will not wash off, keeping chains and moving parts from binding or building up with dirt and debris. A high flash point, excellent water displacement, and dielectric properties upto 70kV make this suite of products a must for the farm.
Benefits: Equipment Longevity, Reduced Maintenance Costs, Reduced Capital Expenditure. Reduce usage of WD40.
Corrosion can be reduced by regular cleaning and good storage.Benefits resulting from thorough hosing down with water after use, and in particular from the removal of mud poultices, followed when dry by a generous application of lanolin grease or spray on fluid lanolins a temporary protective to moving, cutters, and other parts.
Spray spare parts for internal storage with Lantos Lanoseal LS773 to keep the moisture out. Lantos Coatings Lanolin products are safe to handle and use, Eco-Friendly. and Environmentally safe.
The use of Lanolube LL735 sprayed on chains and gearing will reduce friction and keep them well lubricated. Regular maintenance reduces running costs,
Use Lantos HT110 grease for nipple injection on areas closed bearings.
Pour Lantos Lanolube HG 735 into the intake, turn the pump over once or twice to make sure the liquid is filling all the interior. When it is time to use the pump again, it will be in perfect working condition. Maintain the exterior protection with Lantos Lanoseal LS773 robust exterior product
CORROSION BY AGRICULTURAL CHEMICALS
Many commercial chemicals are used in farming, including fertilisers, grain and silage preservatives, chemicals for pest, disease and weed control, and proprietary acid solutions for cleaning dairy equipment. Farm wastes and slurries can also be significantly corrosive. The chemicals most frequently damaging to farming structures and machinery, include acid preservatives and additives, certain fertilisers and manures or slurries.
Lantos Lanolube LL730 penetrates and Lanolube HG 735 lubricates the inside of the chain, frees up and prevents wear and corrosion. Lantos Coating lanolin products will displace any trapped water, leaving a film barrier for continuous protection with sufficient body to resist fly off and water wash off.
The wide variety of structures, machinery, and fittings employed for farming purposes makes it difficult to define precisely and concisely where corrosion can be most damaging. The situation is further complicated by the different types of environment (rural, urban, coastal), the local microclimate, the type of farming activity, the seasonal use of certain equipment and machinery and the methods employed for storage.

The degree of corrosion of a metal is largely dependent on the environment in which it is put to use. The atmospheric behaviour of metals in wet conditions and in soil differs, therefore protective treatments must be chosen in accordance with environments. While it is appropriate to use temporary protection such as fluid lanolin's and natural lanolin greases which are natural corrosion inhibitors, it is more important to select materials which can withstand the type(s) of corrosion envisaged in a particular environment.
NON SEASONAL CORROSION PROTECTION
For machinery and equipment adequate cleaning and application of temporary corrosion protection with the use of inhibited oils and greases prior to storage in a well-assessed facility is important to avoid damaging corrosion effects.
