Recently, Tridan International sponsored local kids from Danville High School in the Future Problem Solvers international competition.

Consequently, we are proud to announce that they brought home third place for their Project Ignition: Be the Key to Road Safety. The following are highlights from the original article written by Carol Roehm and published in the Commercial-News of Danville, IL.

The International Future Problem Solvers competition was held June 3 – 9 at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst. For this competition, 75 teams from all over the globe participated. The teams are broken into three age divisions –  junior, middle, and senior and each American team is paired with an international team. The DHS Future Problem Solvers were paired with a team from Turkey.

Project Ignition: Be the Key to Road Safety was started in the 2017-2018 school year and developed more over a second year. To qualify for the international competition, the DHS team first won the 2019 Illinois State Championship in the community problem-solving category. In fact, each year Danville High School has groups of up to 15 kids that compete in the competition.

Key To Road Safety

Their project involved strategies for safe driving on city streets, rural roads, and also on interstates. The tragic loss of fellow students in car accidents inspired the idea for this project.  For their research, they learned about the “fatal four” unsafe driving habits. Those include not wearing your seat belt, using electronics, speeding, and also, driving impaired. The main component of the project is making brightly colored signs to remind motorists to drive safely.

These signs will be installed in five different places across Danville and have; Be Smart, Be Safe, and Be Seen displayed on one sign with Drive Safe, Arrive Safe on another. Hopefully, these signs will remind drivers to be aware of their surroundings and practice safe driving. Furthermore, if proven successful, our participants hope these signs will remain in place.  To print or save download the full article here.

The DHS Future Problem Solvers are: DJ Barnette, Jolene Blodgett, Layla Castro, Micah Cherry, Alexis Flores, Amelia Ingold, Alana Kleiner, Kaleb Medina, Brooke Parker, Shivangi Patel, Makayla Smith and Quemarii Williams. Finally, we would like to congratulate all the participants, teachers and mentors!

Lubricants for Metal Working


Lubricants are an essential part of metalworking. Most lubricants are used to reduce friction to help extend tool life. Cooling lubricant for metalworking needs to be effective. In addition, they need to be free of any harmful substance that may damage the environment or be harmful to your health. Our lubricants at Tridan, are used in stamping, expanding and bending. Also, our hydraulic oils are used for hydraulically driven machines we make.

Lubricants – Hydraulic Oil

Hydraulic oil is not only a lubricant, but it helps transfer power through a hydraulic system. An effective hydraulic oil should contain certain aspects, such as oxidation, thermal, and hydraulic stability as well as stability and anti-wear performance. Also, the proper viscosity grade of oil lets the equipment to start at a low temperature and allow proper oil flow rates to help keep up high efficiencies under high heats.

Our lubes here at Tridan International are for drawing fin stock during die stamping and adding heat resistance during bending and expanding of copper, stainless or aluminum tubing.  All of our lubes are available in 55-gallon drums and 5-gallon containers. Also, when it comes to metalworking, keeping temperatures down is a key factor for long-lasting equipment and efficiency.

At Tridan Internation we offer a wide arrange of lubes to help get the job done:

Fin Stock Lube

Hydraulic Oils

  • TriLub HYD-AW – Hydraulic oils available in ISO 32, 46 and 68 grade.

Miscellaneous Lube

Tubing Lube

Finally, the experts at Tridan International can explain which lubricant is best for your machine and answer all the questions you may have. Also, you can give us a call today at  217-443-3592 or use our easy contact form for any questions.
