[Interflon Food Lube H46


Initial situation

The spindle of a milling head used for processing aluminium rotates at 20,000 RPM. Because of the high speed, the ceramic bearings in the head had a usable life of only 900 hours.


Our solution

The highly pressure-resistant and friction-reducing oil [Interflon Food Lube H46 his oil provides extra protection against fretting, wear and corrosion.


Result

By using [Interflon Food Lube H46, the usable life of the bearing was doubled from 900 to 1884 hours. Lubricant consumption was reduced from 40 to 20 litres a year. This allowed a total of €12,120 to be saved.
