PAPER MACHINE LUBE SYSTEM

When paper machine lube oils are contaminated with particles and water, bearing friction increases and bearing surface wear multiples.  When contaminated, paper machine oil is not allowed to perform its work of removing heat from the bearing and reducing friction between bearing metal surfaces. Contamination will infiltrate and affect all bearing lube points on a paper machine, and when contaminated oil moves through a paper machine circulating lube oil system, the contamination presents a threat to lube system components and functionality.

The solution to oil contamination control in a paper machine lube systems are Kaydon Filtration 858 Vacuum Distillation Dehydration Oil Conditioning Systems.  This selection guideline shows 858 system recommendations for your paper machine lube oil contamination control application.
