Mining, Cement & Brick
Equipment in the brick and cement industries is often exposed to extreme working conditions. Environmental factors include dust, humidity and often high or variable temperatures. Also most cement and brick production equipment is facing extreme loads.
Equipment failure and subsequent down time represent significant loss of revenue and are a major factor in production costs as alterative systems are not usually available.
Therefore selecting of the correct lubricant is very important.
At IKV Lubricants our engineers and technicians have years of experience within these heavy industries and have consulted with engineers on –site and at equipment manufacturers to develop a full range of lubricants for this environment.
IKV Lubricants manufacture high performance products which can offer extended equipment life, lower maintenance costs, less down time and increased efficiency.
IKV manufacture a full range of products for kiln bearings, open gears and drives, ball & rod mills, rolling mills and continuous casting.
Our IKV-TRIBOGEAR range are products specially formulated for open gears. They are used extensively in the steel industry, brick and cement, mining and chemical industries. The range includes aluminium complex greases with high quality graphite content. Some are designed for use in automatic lubricating systems.
The range includes IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-OO/R which contains graphite, and is used for running-in of new gears. Its purpose is the elimination of surface roughness of the teeth. Is applied by automatic spray system. It is also used as a repair lubricant for small defects in open-gears, such as scoring and roughness.
IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-0 PLUS has been designed more specially for those oversized or overloaded gears working in very extreme conditions. IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-0 PLUS can be used too in normal working conditions whenever a lubricant with higher perfomance than IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-0 is required.
Also available are our special service greases: IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-3000, IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-1000 & IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-1500 PLUS. These greases are variations of the IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-0 and IKV-TRIBOGEAR OGH-0 PLUS which have higher viscosities base oil (ISO VG 1000 & ISO VG 1500) to meet the specifications of some open gear manufacturers.
