Steel Mill Bearings

QUAKERTEK® CS 4602-EP

Steelscape, national supplier of metallic-coated and painted steel, was experiencing corrosion on the bearings in their Galvanize and Cold Mill lines. The corrosion was shortening bearing life, causing them to be replaced up to 9 times a year, at a cost of $6,200 per bearing for a total of cost $55,800per year.  By switching to the QUAKERTEK® CS 4602-EP calcium sulfonate grease, bearing replacements have been decreased by greater than 4x providing a total savings (including materials) of $34k/year.

High Temperature, High Load Bearings

QUAKERTEK® UX 4615-EP

A large steel mill was accumulating plates at extreme temperatures on their output tables, causing the bearings to work under high loads and extreme temperatures and resulting in melted grease and lubrication loss. Thus, output table rolls were failing regularly with 4 roll breaks/month on average causing lowered production rates and delays. Additionally, there was increased risk to worker safety. The mill was looking for a grease that could handle the demand of the environment and solve the stated issues.  By switching to  QUAKERTEK® UX 4615-EP, the mill found a prouct that could handle the extrem environments of the mill and provided a nearly 15x decrease monthly materials, repairs and labor costs.  While improving worker safety.
