An international player in the steel industry operates 2 coil accumulators within its production plant. 64 lower bearings need to be lubricated, currently this lubrication in done with a disposable gas driven automatic lubricator.
LUBRICATION OF THE LOWER BEARINGS OF A COIL ACCUMULATOR AT A STEEL PLANT.
It's time and budget consuming for the maintenance teams to replace all gas driven lubricators 4 times per year, furthermore - the systems are disposable and cost yet again when recycling them according to all environmental regulations. An overconsumption of lubricant is in play too: as the lubricators are not always empty at the maintenance window they are replaced anyway to avoid extra machine downtime and service runs by the team.
MEMOLUB ONE, a versatile single point electro-mechanic automatic lubricator with 10 bars of pressure and a 240cc cartridge is ideal to reduce the consumption of lubricant and minimise maintenance interventions to only replacing a cartridge and battery once a year.
- A cost saving of 85% as of the second year compared to the operation with gas driven automatic lubrication systems.
- The coil accumulator needs to be serviced only once per year versus once every 3 months, an efficiency gain of 75%.
- The consumption of lubricant went down with 50%, thanks to a precise and well timed lubrication process.
