One of the top 10 largest Russian pharmaceutical manufacturers in Saint Petersburg finds the sustainable solution for open linear bearing of blistering machine with BARRIERTA L 55/2.
The pharmaceutical company faced contamination in the form of metal foil particles, colour and consistency changes. This forced them to do multiple relubrications and take up regular maintenance every month. The main reason for the metal foil particles and change in colour and consistency was that there was tremendous wear in the machine due to improper lubrication.
Hence, their objective was to reduce the risk of final product contamination and reduce maintenance intervals.
Klüber Lubrication was able to provide an optimum solution for the customer in the form of BARRIERTA L55/2. Since switching to BARRIERTA L55/2, there was no need for any maintenance activity during the entire year. The risk of final product contamination both by lubricants and maintenance personal was absolutely excluded. BARRIERTA L55/2 has been the right solution for lubrication points exposed to metal (or other nature) dust due to the low surface tension of this lubricant. With reduced contamination, consumption and lesser man-machine interaction the customer was finally able to meet their sustainability goals.
Overall benefits and values:
- Avoid contamination due to machine wear and tear
- No cleaning needed for one year period
- Extended relubrication intervals
- Being ISO 21469 certified product, no risk of contamination
