Versatile Grease Offers Long-Lasting Protection
Recycling companies are faced with many challenges today: Huge price fluctuations, changing market demands and short contract periods with buyers of recycling products. In order to still operate profitably, it is important to rule out equipment failures which can cause unscheduled downtimes. This makes equipment maintenance and lubrication even more important.
Lubrication Technologies, Inc. (LTI), understands that safety and effeciency are key when it comes to the Recycling Industry. The operation crew needs to maximize productivity, reduce maintenance costs and provide a safe working environment for the staff. Using a lubricator is ideal for use with hard to reach lubrication points. The lubricator also automatically and reliably lubricates exposed lubrication points. Periodic manual lubrication of machines with a grease gun is no longer necessary. When lubricators are installed, workers spend much less time in danger zones. The maintenance personnel have less exposure to noise, dust and the danger of rotating machine parts, which increases workplace safety.
Single Point Lubrication Systems for Recycling Industry
Machinery in recycling plants need lubrication of some kind for smooth and efficient running. This is achieved by using different grades and types of lubricating oils which are stored in designated lube oil tanks or in drums or receptacles. We work closely with our Recycling partners to ensure their needs are met. LTI has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to installing Automatic Lubrication Systems for recycling businesses to help protect their equipment. The installation of lubricators greatly extends the service life of components by lubricating key points for roller bearings and sliding bearings/guides on the hammer/impact mills, granulators, vibrating screen, air separators, sorters, Winnowing machines, presses, shredders, ventilation fans, combustion fans, electric motors, washers, fans, and conveyors. The reduction of maintenance needs and downtimes also leads to a reduction of overall costs.
In recycling factories where lots of dust and dirt are present, regular lubrication is important. Badly lubricated components can be quickly damaged and must then be replaced. This leads to interruptions in production and higher costs.
Common lubricant suffering points for the recycling industry include:
Bearing failures - Greases
Harsh ambient conditions (dust, dirt and vibrations)
Hard-to-reach and dangerous lubrication points
Lack of staff and spread out, complex shredder, separator and conveyor systems
that are subject to heat can melt and run out of bearings. Greases that do not form a good seal can let in contaminants. LE has greases that are extremely tacky and nearly impervious to water washout, and can handle heavy loads with ease. We also offers automatic lubrication systems
for making sure grease is applied in the right place at the right time in the right quantity.
Wire rope - Do your wire ropes, cables and draglines become rusted, corroded or frayed? You can protect your wire rope and cable from high stress loading, shock loading, jerking and heavy loads with LE's full line of penetrating and coating wire rope lubricants. Whether you want lubricant to penetrate to the core or to coat and seal, LE has a full range of protective lubricant solutions, including wire rope lubricant applicators to reduce labor costs and ensure safe, reliable operation.
LUBRICANTS...SMALL COST, HUGE RETURNS!
Lubrication Management Programs Protect Your Assets and Save You Money:
Although lubricants make up a mere 3% of the typical maintenance budget; using ineffective products, techniques and applications can have a significant impact on the lubrication-related costs that make up 40% of that budget. A Lubrication Management Program designed by the Technical Consultants at Lubrication Technologies, Inc. can help you target those areas where you see red.
Reliability Centered Maintenance, (see steps below),
Your equipment and components will last longer, run more efficiently and more reliably, and you won’t replace equipment or components prematurely
Your labor force will spend less time on routine lubrication-related maintenance and no time on lubricant-related equipment failures
You’ll reduce over-all lubricant consumption as well as waste
is the approach endorsed by Maintenance Professionals across industries. We practice RCM to support the protection of assets at the lowest life-cycle cost. Our World Class Lubrication Reliability Program incorporates best practices and produces optimum results.
