Krytox™ Performance Lubricants for Pulp and Paper

Performance Lubricants Reduce Downtime and Increase Output

Paper and pulp mills routinely produce paper used for print and writing, tissue, packaging, corrugated containers, and box board. Keeping the numerous motors, belts, fans, and other moving parts in these mills operating is challenging due to their frequent lubrication needs.

Lubricants used in pulp mill and paper machine equipment can directly affect a company's bottom line. While other lubricants require costly and frequent reapplication, Krytox™ lubricants extend these intervals from weekly to annually. Because of this, Krytox™ lubricants reduce life cycle costs and limit downtime for pulp mill and paper machine equipment.

Additional benefits of using Krytox™ performance lubricants in paper and pulp mills (especially corrugated containers and boxboard equipment) include:

  • Higher performance in harsh production environments
  • Resistance to high temperatures and harsh paper processing chemicals
  • Resilience to steam, water, and caustic cleaners
  • Nontoxic, chemically and biologically inert, and silicone-free
  • NSF H-1 certified for food contact

Performance Greases Increase the Value of Board and Paper Machinery

Board and paper production have distinct lubrication needs based on the equipment used and the extreme conditions in which they operate. By protecting equipment from harsh temperatures and chemicals, Krytox™ lubricants extend equipment life cycles and increase machine value.

Krytox™ lubricants are selected for different reasons, depending on the particular application. This includes:

Box Board Corrugator

Krytox™ performance lubricants are the industry standard for lubricating corrugator bearings on heated rolls in single facers that must maintain lubrication in very high temperatures.

Pulp and Paper Machinery

In the extreme conditions of pulp mill and paper machine equipment, lubricant selection affects production equipment uptime and life cycle costs. Krytox™ lubricants provide endurance through heat, stay in place in the presence of steam or water, and do not react to chemicals used in production processes.
