A lot has changed since those early days. Recently we had a reminder of how far ahead of the game we were back then… and still are!
Our Australian distributor recently met up with the engineer, whose business has now become part of a much larger specialist engineering and asset maintenance group who are heavily involved in advanced asset protection technologies such as Enviropeel.
During their conversation it came up that the company had recently inspected some Enviropeel applications protecting pulley bearing housings and shafts coated in the very early days of Enviropeel–so early that some of them were from before we had learned how to color or properly UV protect the material.
They were very pleased and satisfied to see how brilliantly the pulley parts had been preserved, despite being outside for at least 12 years in a tropical coastal environment.
They sent us some photos (above). The first shows the original honey-colored Enviropeel material which, although the outside looks like it was knitted by my great aunt, is in perfect condition on the inside and the bearing housing is still in great condition.
The second and third images (clockwise) show two grease nipples–one with protection and one without.
Below those pictures, material cut away from the end cap area of another conveyor pulley housing shows the excellent condition of the parts but specifically the ‘shiny’ bright grease nipple in ‘as new’ condition.
Finally, as a word of warning, the last pic shows what happens to a bearing housing that did not have the benefit of Enviropeel protection.
These pictures show why, sixteen years after first hearing of Enviropeel, the Australians are still so committed to the system.
