Increasing Lubrication Reliability in Diverter Flap Damper
SKL Maintenance Systems Corporation case study APAC0013 – Chesterton products – Chesterton Industrial Lubricants
The Chesterton® 652 Pneumatic Lubricant and Conditioner is a high performance, low-viscosity product that has the ability to reduce maintenance costs and downtime while improving productivity and efficiency. When this client came to Chesterton with stock-up building up and delaying production due to a lack of lubrication on the filter regulator lubricator, Chesterton employees were able to prescribe the Chesterton® 652 on the spot.
Products featured in the case study:
The Diverter Flap Damper in the Finish Mill Area encountered stock–up of the directional valve and malfunctioning of the cylinder as there was no Filter Regulator Lubricator installed to prevent such problems. They needed a solution to prevent this stock-up and lubricate the equipment, leading to improved efficiency.
Chesterton® 652 Pneumatic Lubricant & Conditioner was applied on the Filter Regulator Lubricator (FRL) of the Diverter Flap Damper to prevent stock-up.
No incident of malfunction was reported as the equipment was running smoothly after the application of Chesterton® 652 PLC. This has given the client a vast improvement in productivity and reliability. The intervention by Chesterton left the client with less stock-up build-up, lower maintenance costs, and less equipment breakdown than ever before.
Over a six month period, the client saved approx. $4,000 AUD thanks to the suggestion and application of the Chesterton product by Chesterton employees.
