Poultry video How Interflon reduces maintenance and increases continuity



Des lubrifiants qui comprennent votre industrie

Dans votre activité, la fiabilité des équipements est essentielle. Lorsque les volailles arrivent, des douzaines d'employées sont prêts à s'en occuper. Les temps d'arrêt coûtent très cher et peut être très stressant pour les hommes et les animaux.

Vos installations fonctionnent dans des conditions très difficiles : lourdes charges, lavage quotidien avec des nettoyants agressifs et des variations de températures. Les lubrifiants sont donc beaucoup sollicités pour garantir la fiabilité des équipements. En même temps, vous ne pouvez pas stopper votre process de production pour effectuer l’entretien. La lubrification doit être donc facile à appliquer, fiable et durable.

Les abattoirs Van-O-Bel, fondés en 1965, comptent parmi les leaders du marchés en Belgique. La capacité d'abattage a progressé petit à petit jusqu'à atteindre environ 900.000 poulets par semaine. Van-O-Bel est satisfait ds produits Interflon depuis des années.

Pieter Vanackere, Responsable Van-O-Bel : "Grâce à Interflon nous avons prolongé les intervalles de lubrification. Nous avons un type d'huile et un type de graisse. L'application est propre car le produit ne coule presque pas. Ceci permet une gestion efficace de nos machines et garantie stabilité et continuité dans nos process."

Eliminate dust penetration and rusting issues of your transport chains

The lubricant you currently use on your transport chains is one of the many brands of mineral oil with an NSF-H1 certification. However, these traditional lubricants cannot withstand the harsh environment created by daily sanitation involving high-pressure spray guns, hot water and caustic cleaning chemicals. This is why your chains are currently being lubricated daily - or at least once a week. Even with this preventative maintenance program, these expensive chains only last one to two years at most plants and they usually suffer from rusting issues as well.

With Interflon Food Lube G-series (NSF-H1), you can reduce your oil consumption by 70 or even 90 percent and make your chains last two to four times longer. You will first notice the difference when you no longer have to continuously adjust the chains. Our Food Lube G-series lubricant will virtually eliminate dust penetration and rusting issues. Moreover, there will be no oil dripping onto the birds or the floor. Let’s say you put new chains on your evisceration line and you use Interflon Food Lube G-series. In the past you would have had to make five to six adjustments within the first seven to eight weeks and lubrication would be applied two times a day. Now, in that same timeline, you only need to make two to three adjustments and the Interflon lubrication is only applied once a week.

Dumper chains that last as long as they should: 52 weeks or longer

Dumpers are usually outside and therefore are exposed to dust, freezing temperatures in the winter and hot and humid weather in the summer. The chains on most dumpers cannot be adjusted, so when they start to slap around they must be changed. These chains are lubricated one to even seven times a week, usually with chain oil - not necessarily food-grade oil - from an aerosol can. Even with proper lubrication, contamination builds up on the chains and they rust and need to be replaced every six to ten weeks.

Interflon Food Lube or Food Lube G allows for weekly or bi-weekly lubrication and the chains can last 52 weeks or longer. Due to our dry MicPol® film, the chains stay cleaner and are extremely resistant to contamination and rust.

Reduce grease consumption of bearings by 80 percent

Lubricating with conventional food-grade greases in a poultry plant has its limitations due to sanitation cleaning. The bearings on the machines are exposed to high-pressure sprayers, hot water and harsh cleaning chemicals during the sanitation wash-downs. Maintenance staff then lubricate the bearings in order to purge the water. This results in high grease consumption and labour costs. For example, a Marel Sorter would have to be greased every week on Saturday or Sunday with five to seven pumps per bearing to extract the water.

Thanks to our MicPol® technology, Interflon Food Grease HD2 (NSF-H1) repels water, allowing you to lubricate your bearings once every two weeks with just one or two pumps. This reduces your grease consumption by at least 80 percent. Moreover, your bearing failure rate will drop significantly due to less friction.
