Grease consumption of cutter shaft bearings

Grease consumption of cutter shaft bearings

80% less grease consu­mptio­n and lower envir­onmen­tal impact.

Interflon Grease LS2

Initial situation

Despite high lubrication frequency with conventional grease, there were high maintenance costs resulting from wear and tear, with €4,500 cutter shaft bearings having to be replaced regularly. High environmental impact due to washing away of the conventional grease.

Our solution

Use Interflon Grease LS2. This grease is seawater resistant and does not wash away easily.


Lower environmental impact because only eight litres of grease are being used a week. In the past, this was eight litres every 11 hours. There is hardly any wear and tear of the cutter shaft bearings now.
