U.LUBE team on-site service case:Bale winder lubrication improvement of brewery filling plant
A brewery has a production line with a scale of 450,000 tons. The U.LUBE team examined the lubrication condition of its main equipment in the filling plant and found more problems, and the following will take the lubrication problem of the bale winder as an example case for lubrication improvement.
Bale winder conveyor chain
At present, it is found that the brewery's filling workshop has lubrication problems with the conveyor chain and hot air blower bearing. The operating condition of the conveyor chain is above 200℃, and using a common lithium grease. The fluidity of the common lithium grease is poor, and the lubricant cannot enter the chain roller and sleeve to form a lubricating film, and the performance of high temperature resistance is also poor, the base oil is easy to evaporate, and the thickening agent will be left on the chain, and sludge and carbon will be easily formed under high temperature.
U.LUBE team suggests manufacturers to use high temperature chain special lubricants, such as U.LUBE MagN E26 chain oil, a synthetic high temperature chain oil, which has good permeability and can completely penetrate between rollers and bushings to form lubricant film, which can clean off the original carbon on the chain and has little tendency to accumulate carbon in high temperature environment.
Hot air blower bearings
And the hot air blower bearing also operates underabove 200 ℃ high temperature, using a kind of ordinary calcium-based grease. The flow resistance to high temperature performance is also relatively poor, the lubricant high temperature resistance performance is poor, the base oil is easy to volatilize, and thickener also remain on the bearing, with formation of sludge, carbon, resulting in bearing dry friction, stuck and other phenomena under high temperature (ordinary calcium-based grease is not carbon accumulation, only loss), thus reducing the service life of the bearing.
对于热风机轴承的润滑问题，优润U.LUBE团队则建议使用专用轴承润滑脂，如优润(U.LUBE)润滑脂ET FLUOR 72 ，适用于电机轴承，熔炉轮轴承，烘干设备轴承，定型机轴承，酸、碱性物质，汽油、燃油、溶剂等操作与泵送等应用，适用于各种极限温度与苛刻工况下，需要长效润滑与密封的部位。
For the lubrication of hot blower bearings, the U.LUBE team recommends the use of special bearing grease, such as U.LUBE grease ET FLUOR 72, which is suitable for motor bearings, furnace wheel bearings, drying equipment bearings, sizer bearings, acid, alkaline substances, gasoline, fuel oil, solvents and other operations and pumping applications, for a variety of extreme temperatures and harsh working conditions, the need for long-lasting lubrication and sealing. It is suitable for all kinds of extreme temperatures and harsh working conditions, which need long-lasting lubrication and sealing.
