Can You Handle the Heat?...

Conditions in continuous casting test lubrication to the limit. The working temperature of the bearings is 180°C, sometimes rising to 300°C. Heavy loads, dust everywhere, and steam from the cooling water make the challenge even greater. And, as if that wasn’t enough, the bearings are lubricated via a central system with hundreds of metres of pipes – some just a few millimetres in diameter.

One single plant consumes tonnes of lubricating grease every year. Using the right grease means more running hours and less wear. Not to mention a good night’s sleep for the production manager.

We’ve worked with steelwork staff and manufacturers of continuous casting equipment to develop lubricating grease that meets these stringent demands. The result is a range of enhanced Lithium Calcium, Lithium Complex, and Calcium Sulfonate Complex products that provide exceptional thermal and mechanical stability in combination with excellent adhesion and water resistance.
