Oden Machinery, Inc. offers patented filling, blending and pumping solutions for the lubrication and grease filling needs, Change Parts CFO Greg Simsa told Lube Report.

We can provide explosion-proof filling for lubricants and greases through a variety of applications, such as automotive fuel additives and personal care, Simsa said, noting that the newly-formed entity is capable of supplying inline, continuous blending solutions that enable customers to more cost effectively blend products in a non-batch environment.

Simsa added that this mass blending technology is proven, and it allows for both lower production costs and more specialized products that may not be able to be achieved with traditional batch blending solutions.

The Oden Corp. brands will be managed from and manufactured at the Oden Machinery facility in Tonawanda, N.Y.
