Contract manufacturing and toll blending are essential services in the industrial sector, offering tailored production solutions. These processes allow companies to outsource production, focusing on specialized areas like lubricants and additives. This approach provides flexibility and efficiency, crucial for adapting to market demands and technological advancements. Contract manufacturing is a strategic choice for businesses seeking expertise in specific manufacturing processes without needing in-house facilities, ensuring quality and cost-effectiveness in product development and distribution.
Allegheny Petroleum’s approach to contract manufacturing is distinguished by our focus on customization and quality. Since the late 1980s, we’ve specialized in working hand-in-hand with our customers to create products tailored to their individual needs, utilizing our extensive industry experience and advanced manufacturing facilities. This commitment to bespoke solutions and client satisfaction sets Allegheny apart in industrial lubricant and fuel additive production.
Allegheny Petroleum’s manufacturing capabilities are a cornerstone of our service offerings, characterized by remarkable flexibility and advanced technological integration. Our facilities can handle production volumes of any size, up to 30,000 gallons, catering to a diverse range of client needs. This capacity is supported by our four strategically located manufacturing facilities in Wilmerding, PA; Ambridge, PA; Boonville, IN; and Angleton, TX.
A key feature of our manufacturing process is using Pulsair blending systems for bulk lubricant and fuel blending. These systems employ a novel “pulsed air technology,” which involves the sequential release of compressed air or gas at the bottom of a tank. This technology is perfect for mixing and reduces the need for maintenance, contributing to overall cost-effectiveness.
In our Ambridge, PA plant, Allegheny Petroleum has dedicated manufacturing tanks for Viscosity Index Improvers (VII). These tanks are equipped with specialized systems like block polymer grinding systems, Silverson mixing systems, and homogenizers, ensuring consistent and high-quality blending of VIIs.
Our extensive storage capacity, over 3 million gallons across all four facilities, allows us to maintain a diverse inventory of base oils and raw materials. This capability ensures we can quickly respond to customer needs, a vital aspect of our service promise.
Moreover, Allegheny Petroleum emphasizes quality control, with most required QC tests conducted in-house, showcasing our commitment to delivering products that meet the highest industry standards.
