Storage and handling of industrial lubricants changed for good back in 2013 when Trico Corporation launched its Spectrum Oil Containers as part of its Spectrum system of products. Trico had been a re-seller of another brand of oil container products, and decided to create a container that further exceeded the expectations of the modern maintainer.

The Trico Spectrum Oil Containers sales have grown over the last 2 years by offering a more ergonomic design, which maintainers have mentioned they found easier to handle and carry in their plant.

The Spectrum brand is a family of products designed to make lubrication management principals and best practices easy to implement in a maintainers routine.

The system includes:
Containers – A system of three different sizes of 2, 3, or 4 gallons. Three pouring lids with either ¼”, ½”, or 1” spout which are sealed when closed. The lids and vent come in a ten different colors.

Charts – A legend for the wall that shows each color and which fluid the color represents, this provides the basis for a system which maintainers use to put the correct lubricant in machinery every time.

Tags – These color coded tags use the chart and choice of ten different colors to tag equipment.

Bands and Collars – These allow you to continue the coding to the Opto-Matic oiler and grease gun applications.

Grease caps – Color coding grease applications is a best practice.
