Grease Consumption Of Cutter Shaft Bearings

Grease Consumption Of Cutter Shaft Bearings

80% Less Grease Consu­mptio­n And Lower Envir­onmen­tal Impact.

Interflon Grease LS2 and LS1/2


Initial Situation

Despite high lubrication frequency with conventional grease, there were high maintenance costs resulting from wear and tear, with $4500 cutter shaft bearings having to be replaced regularly. High environmental impact due to washing away of the conventional grease.


Our Solution

Use Interflon Fin Grease (aerosol) LS 2. This grease is seawater resistant and does not wash away easily.


Result

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