Lubrication Systems

Grease & Oil

The general concept of manual lubrication is that "if a little is good, more must be better". This cannot be further from the truth. Using too much lubricant is a waste. Overfilling any bearing can cause the seals to push out, allowing dirt, debris or water to then enter the bearing, causing failures.

High Speed Bearings

High speed bearings that support machinery such as saws require the right amount of lubrication in exact locations. Over lubricating the bearings can generate heat which decreases its life. Having to replace short-lived bearings can cause unscheduled downtime and impact budgets.

Kiln & Cart Wheel Bushings

On average typical nylon kiln cart bushings require replacement every 2-3 months. Due to the high continuous working temperatures of a maximum 110-130ºC and high loads the nylon extrudes from the bushing, reducing the life due to oxidation of the plastic and poor lubrication.

Sharp Chain Lubrication

Sharp chains, whether it is the guided dog link or roller type, are very specialized equipment and can cause challenges in regards to lubrication because of the speed, location and design of the chain.

Saw Guide Lubrication

Whether it is overheating from too little oil or freezing from too much water, improper lubrication can cause costly damage to not only the saws but surrounding parts.

Minimum Quantity Lubrication (MQL)

Traditional lubrication systems can cause increased friction due to improper lubrication. This in turn can cause extreme heat which could damage valuable parts. In response to the increased heat typically coolant is also used.

Oil & Gas

Often frac packing oil application is inconsistent and does not remain where it is applied and needed. This can lead to the overconsumption of lubricant and unnecessary costs.
