By converting to QUAKERTEK CS 4015-EP a roughing mill has achieved reduced maintenance time and cost, as well as cooling water pollution, and now has cleaner machinery.
Extend bearing life and reduce unplanned downtime resulting in reduced maintenance costs Promote mill reliability and productivity.
Verkol Lubricants, a Quaker Chemical Company, assessed the mill’s situation, and introduced QUAKERTEK™ VERKOPLEX EP-2, a lithium complex grease, reducing bearing failures to 5-6 a year.
Quaker Chemical Corporation (“Quaker”) proposed the steel mill trial QUINTOPLEX™ LXS 1002-EP, while the grease burns, the duration time is very short due to its unique formulation, therefore, reducing the risk of fire hazards.
The lubrication interval was extended from 1 month with the polyurea grease to one year with QUAKERTEK™ VERKOFLUOR 862 PFTE thickened grease.
CSI ran a test specific to CSI, which involves holding a blow torch to the grease to see if it catches fire and heating a metal washer until the washerwas glowing from heat.
Quaker introduced QUAKERTEK™ CS 4602-EP into Steelscape’s Galvanize and Cold Mill operations
QUAKERTEK™ AX 2502 EP was trialed by the steel mill, and matched all of the technical requirements of their current grease.
