Iron and Steel Mills

Machines in iron and steel mills are expected to run reliably for a long time despite its components and lubricants being subjected to extreme operating conditions like high temperatures, high loads, water, steam and aggressive chemicals. Combined, these conditions degrade lubricants, cause unplanned downtime and increase maintenance costs.

Continuous Casting

Casting operates in an extremely hot and corrosive environment which experiences heavy particulate and water contamination. The major oil lubricated component is the gearbox drive. If this fails, casting will come to a halt which will result in production loss and safety exposure.
