Improve grease and bearing service lifeKiln maintenance is usually time-based, so hard-driven components must last until the next interval. That's not so easy when even the kiln's outer shell can reach 400° C - enough to reduce lubricant viscosity inside bearings and eventually cause failures.
Tumbling loads and dust can also lead to bearing contamination and additional failures.
Energy consumption is also increasingly an issue, as energy costs are rising rapidly and the emission of greenhouse gases needs to be reduced.
- Condition monitoring equipment, thermography for example, that helps reduce maintenance costs
- High performance bearing, sealing and lubrication solutions that help improve efficiency and reliability
