Interflon Grease MP2/3


Initial situation

According to the manufacturer, the bearings must be replaced every three years. The basic oil separates out of the grease used previously. This meant that the bearings are no longer sealed and dirt can penetrate them. This led to excessive wearing of the bearings.


Our solution

The highly pressure resistant and friction-reducing bearing grease Interflon Grease MP2/3 was used. This grease does not bleed and prevents dirt from penetrating into the bearing.


Result

Over the past 5 years, Interflon Grease MP2/3 has been used in all bearings in the rollers of the flexographic printing press. Over this period there have been no damaged bearings. The grease is stable and provides reliable lubrication. €12,000 has been saved.
