Chains and steel belts in the wood panel industry are subject to extreme temperatures, as are machines and their components within areas like the cement industry, which also experience massive loads, continuous operation, and cement dust.
This can affect the condition of a range of components, such as gear tooth flanks in large gear drives; yet expensive components like chains need their lifetime extended as much as possible, minimizing production downtime and repair costs. If detected early enough, minor damage can be prevented from progressing by using the right specialty lubricant.
A solution like our Component Inspection service is needed. Components are cleaned, inspected and mechanical treatment can be added upon, if demanded. The right speciality lubricants complete the measure. Corrective actions like gear tooth flank grinding or reprofiling prolong the service life of components. For this, our partner Novexa is available. With this package, repairs can even be effected without exchanging entire components. Within the cement industry, big gears/applications can also be equipped with the monitoring system of our partner DALOG to detect any indication of component failure.
