Benefits of Vacuum Dehydration for Rolling Mill Lubricant Oil
Steel mills typically use lubricants with high demulsibility for rolling mill back-up roller bearings and chocks since relatively high levels of water contaminate the oil from quenching and descaling processes. These rolling mill lubricant oils may be known as Morgoil as they are commonly used on Morgan rolling mill systems.
Fluid Demulsibility and Decanting
High-quality rolling mill oils are similar to turbine oil in that they are made from high-quality base stocks and contain little to no additives. Demulsibility describes the fluid’s ability to separate from the water that gets into the lube oil. If the fluid has high
This process is called decanting, and although it does get rid of a lot of water there is also a high percentage of oil that is lost during decanting which must be replenished and removed in waste oil treatment. The
Benefits of Vacuum Dehydration on Rolling Mill Oil
Using vacuum dehydration, instead of the traditional centrifuge and decanting techniques, you can address the entire dissolved, emulsified and free water problem. The vacuum dehydration oil purification system will remove water and particles, which will improve
Other benefits of vacuum dehydrators include: eliminating roll-stand leakage, seeing a decrease in oil consumption, eliminating the need for decanting and minimizing the environmental impact of the mill. Protect your bearings, fluid, budget and uptime by properly conditioning your oil.
