Ben­e­fits of dry lubri­ca­tion – re­duced main­te­nance and safer oper­a­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - MAINTENANCE MATTERS -

The lat­est dry lubri­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy from SKF is en­abling line ef­fi­ciency to be op­ti­mized safely, and cost ef­fec­tively, across a di­verse range of food and bev­er­age ap­pli­ca­tions. A dry film of lu­bri­cant can be dis­trib­uted by a cen­tral sys­tem, min­i­miz­ing lu­bri­cant con­sump­tion and elim­i­nat­ing the cost and op­er­a­tional im­pli­ca­tions of us­ing wa­ter-based lu­bri­cants.

Ef­fec­tive lubri­ca­tion is vi­tal to the pro­duc­tiv­ity of food and bev­er­age pro­duc­tion lines, but man­ual lubri­ca­tion and con­ven­tional au­to­mated sys­tems can es­ca­late op­er­a­tional costs, con­tam­i­nate prod­ucts and present a haz­ard to line oper­a­tors.

By com­par­i­son, the lat­est dry lubri­ca­tion sys­tems pro­vide a safe, ef­fi­cient and cost-ef­fec­tive so­lu­tion. By lim­it­ing the mois­ture present on the pro­duc­tion line, the sys­tems op­ti­mize line ef­fi­ciency and en­sure prod­uct qual­ity, while at the same time elim­i­nat­ing the risk of op­er­a­tor slip­pages and com­ply­ing with strict health and safety stan­dards.

Us­ing dry lu­bri­cants re­duces both main­te­nance re­quire­ments and the vol­ume of lu­bri­cant needed – au­to­mated dry lubri­ca­tion sys­tems can help food and bev­er­age pro­cess­ing and pack­ag­ing com­pa­nies to keep waste and op­er­at­ing costs down. Use SKF’s range of lu­bri­cants in your food pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tions.
