The increased demand in the pulp and paper manufacturing industry puts additional stress on equipment near or at capacity. Without the proper lubrication, this increase in production pressures may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. Learn how MOLYKOTE® performance lubricants can extend equipment life and improve plant efficiency.
Proper Protection Prevents Poor Performance
As in any industry, downtime brings production to a screeching halt and is the bane of any operations manager within the pulp and paper industry. With equipment running at near-constant capacity, it is critical to monitor key failure points and ensure the proper lubricant is being used to protect high-stress components.
The MOLYKOTE® team understands the unique challenges in pulp and paper processing equipment and has developed a broad portfolio of general-purpose and specialty lubricants, greases, and compounds to meet lubricant demands and keep your facility pushing paper at peak performance.
Why Use MOLYKOTE® for Paper Manufacturing?
Extended Equipment Life & Increased Production
The right industrial lubricant decreases surface damage and wear and can reduce the force required for proper movement and operation. Expensive machinery that runs smoothly leads to longer and maximized production cycles while reducing overall capital costs from failure repairs..
Reduced Downtime & Wear
Paper demand is skyrocketing — facilities are pushing paper machine output to the max to keep up with consumers. Even a few minutes of downtime can have a detrimental impact, resulting in lost value and missed quotas. Using properly formulated industrial lubricant can reduce the frequency of preventative maintenance (PM) cycles and keep equipment running longer.
Long Term-Lubrication & Run-in
By reducing frictional forces for equipment, you can significantly decrease the required energy to run and operate machinery. This efficiency optimization can help paper plant facilities meet sustainability goals and reduce overall spend.
