Below, learn about Chesterton advanced lubricants and why they deliver a level of reliability that make them essential to your operation.
Commodity lubricants often fail to deliver performance in harsh operating conditions. As a result, mechanical assemblies fail prematurely, consume excessive energy and drive up operational costs. The lubricants you select for your "toolbox" should be formulated to meet and exceed the operational requirements of the specific application, including exposure to water, heat, pH, abrasive, vibration and shock load.
Electric motors require grease that does not separate or oil bleed, resists water and prevents corrosion, and can remain the correct thickness or consistency over a long operational window.
For colder service temperatures, the use of
Chesterton 630 SXCF, with its low viscosity, synthetic base oil, is recommended. Further, 630 SXCF is suggested up to 3600 RPM.
Both of these greases have:
Both 635 SXC and 630 SXCF feature Chesterton's proprietary QBT additive technology.
Couplings can wear, suffer from corrosion and lead to increased vibration. Vibration compromises the bearing life of the pump and electric motor as well as the pump seal.
Pump bearings support the shaft and seal assembly. While many pumps are oil lubricated, split case pumps, slurry pumps, axial flow pumps, mixers, agitators and others maybe grease lubricated. Industrial conditions including water ingress, corrosive vapor, abrasive contamination as well as human error in regards to lubrication and installation can result in premature failure
These greases are our recommendation for enhancing the life of pump bearings.
Typical grease that is based on lithium complex and other conventional thickeners can separate, thin out and fail to coat the valve gears and bearings over long-term use. The separated grease will often seep past shaft seals and contaminate the working area, as well as form hardened thickener residue in the gear and bearing assembly. Water and corrosive vapors degrade conventional grease, corroding bearings and gears and ultimately resulting in gear and bearing failure.
Air delivery is controlled to the valve with the use of electronically actuated solenoids. These components open and close to direct pressurized air to the valve actuator. Solenoids fail when the interval valves clog, stick and seize.
