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® greases 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 specific applications, Krytox® greases can even provide lubed-for-life performance, potentially eliminating the need for re-lubrication. One example would be in the bearings of electric motors used to power pumps, fans and drives within the manufacturing process. Krytox® greases have been proven to eliminate premature motor failures associated with bearing lubrication for the 7.5 year average lifetime of electric motors used in the Pulp and Paper Industry.  Lubed-for-Life solutions may also be applicable in other types of machinery including sootblowers and gearboxes.
