A multinational manufacturer of frozen food and potato products operates multiple potato peelers in their factories, wherein the working conditions are hot and humid.
Automatic lubrication in a French fries factory.
Lubrication that was done insufficiently or not at all resulted in a very short life (only 3 months) of the bearings. Maintenance costs got out of hand.
The installation of a Memolub EPS on both the peeler and the machine motor with different lubrication frequencies on all machines.
- Extended life time of the bearings to 2 years (x8).
- A financial saving of -80% on maintenance costs per year, per machine.
- Complete investment returned in only 6 months.
