"An unscheduled stoppage creates a productivity loss of over 175 tons of pellets"

The maintenance team
gets back 10 hours of productivity,
that equals 350 tons of processed food production



The challenge



After their second unscheduled stoppage of the year, the maintenance team from one of the main cattle food producers, had to find ways to prevent new incidents because each stoppage from the CPM pelletizer cost the company 5 productivity hours that translate to 175 tons of pellets of lost production.



Al realizar un Diagnóstico 360° de Interlub, nuestro consultor técnico junto con el jefe de mantenimiento del área, determinaron que las fallas de los rodamientos eran consecuencia de la baja resistencia del lubricante común a las condiciones de carga extrema, contaminación por polvo y vapor presentes en la operación.


The solution



Once the problem was identified, our technical team recommended the use of Aliplex BM 1.5, a NSF H1 certified grease with greater load support, that was developed to withstand water washout, water vapor and dust contamination conditions.




The results


Since Aliplex BM 1.5 was implemented in 2017, the maintenance team hasn't reported a single unschedule stoppage. Thanks to their initiative they have gotten back 10 productivity hours annually, the equivalent to 350 tons of pellet production.
