Keestrack standardizes long-lasting grease on choose scalpersadmin
Keestrack has determined to standardize its Lengthy Life grease (LLG) on the K3, K4, and K5 scalper of their Czech manufacturing facility as of the beginning of September 2023, because of nice testing outcomes since 2021. Keestrack says that this standardization is meant to extend uptime.
Keestrack’s LLG accommodates anti-wear and anti-friction components and is immune to water and rust. It extends service intervals and lowers prices and downtime. It expands the lifetime of the bearings of the display screen field and apron feeder by working at a decrease temperature. The grease is immune to high-impact masses and vibrations and may deal with an ambient temperature from -25 levels Celsius to +145 levels Celsius.
As a result of LLG, the service interval is 5 to 10 occasions longer, in comparison with commonplace EP2 grease. For instance: greasing the display screen field has been lowered from each 50 hours to each 500 hours.
The working temperature of the bearings is far decrease with LLG in comparison with commonplace EP2 grease. In a single take a look at, evaluating the EP2 grease versus LLG on the display screen field of a K5 scalper, the bearings had been working at an working temperature of as much as 60 levels Celsius with commonplace EP2 grease, whereas with long-life grease they had been working at an operational temperature of 43 levels Celsius.
The usage of LLG has a optimistic impact on the lifespan of the bearings, leading to extra uptime, much less downtime, and decrease prices.
To emphasise the traits of this grease, the cartridges are branded underneath the Keestrack non-public label.
LLG is out there in 400 ml tubes and could be simply utilized by a hand pump. The cartridges are made with a screwable cap so that they can’t be blended up with different basic grease pumps. Operators can apply the grease by the hand pump single-handed or both-handed. The hand pump is designed in order that operators can at all times clearly determine the LLG. On the backside, it would keep clearly seen always.
Keestrack sellers will inform customers of this new commonplace on the K3, K4, and K5 scalpers, integrated in Keestrack’s factories within the Czech Republic as of September 1, 2023. Resulting from standardizing the long-life grease, the central greasing possibility on the K3, K4, and K5 will disappear, as this doesn’t make sense anymore as a result of solely six bearings should be greased each 500 hours. The greasing nipples are effectively indicated by the inexperienced labels on the machine with clear directions.
