DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants for the Pulp And Paper Industry.

You may not realize that your production equipment lubrication and life-cycle costs represent a potential savings opportunity, but they do — if you use DuPont™ Krytox® Performance Lubricants. Krytox® can extend lubrication intervals on many of your pulp and paper processing machinery from weekly to annually — and much longer in some equipment, such as sootblower carriages.

Krytox® synthetic oils and greases can help increase your pulp and paper equipment productivity. With other lubricants, costly and frequent re-lubrication is required. But Krytox® oils and greases can extend your re-lubrication intervals and lubricant consumption. Additional benefits include:

  • Performance in extreme production environments — the high temperatures and harsh chemicals that can cause conventional oils and greases to break down have little or no effect on perfluoropolyether- (PFPE-) based Krytox® lubricants. Pulp mill and paper machine equipment are fully lubricated for smooth operation, regardless of heat, steam, water or caustic cleaners. Krytox® lubricants are nontoxic, as well as chemically and biologically inert and silicone-free — and  they will not react with paper-processing chemicals.

In the extreme conditions of pulp mill and paper machine equipment, your choice in lubricants can affect your bottom line. Look to DuPont for a complete line of high-value, top-quality Krytox® lubricants, as well as our line of useful anti-stick coatings for paper machines that prevent the accumulation of stickies.
