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
