Application: Continuous casting segment bearings
Product: Uniplex EXP 2
"Premature wear of the bearings generates high spare part costs and lost productivity hours."
The maintenance team of one of the most important steel companies in the world, faced a really important challenge: reduce premature wear of the continuous casting segment bearings. Solving this problem was pressing, because the number of damaged bearings rised to 360 per year and this impacted productivity by having over 40 hours of unplanned downtime.
Our technical team recommended Uniplex EXP 2, a lubricating grease that excels in water washout resistance, extreme pressure resistance and high temperature performance.
In the final evaluation of results, the maintenance team confirmed that the proposed objectives were met. It was possible to avoid the premature replacement of 360 bearings and the 40 hrs of unscheduled stoppages associated with the identified lubrication problems.
These are some examples of the results that leading companies worldwide have obtained. If you need a solution for your process do not hesitate to contact our experts.
