Improving Rolling-Mill Lube-Oil Performance and Useful Life

Lube oil systems in steel mills and paper mills are commonly plagued with water contamination which compromises the lubricating properties of the oil and reduces useful fluid life. Band-aid maintenance practices such as decanting free water from the bottom of lube reservoirs and the application of antiquated centrifuge equipment are common strategies used to combat water in lube oil. The typical result is shorter bearing life caused by poor lubrication, extra maintenance hours, higher than necessary oil consumption, down time and environmental impact from the decanting and oil recovery process.

To learn more check out this article on how vacuum dehydration can control and maintain water levels below saturation, extend bearing and fluid life, and eliminate the decanting routine.
