Copper Graphite Lube Bar
The Problem: Costly Kiln Maintenance-
Swittzer Technologies Inc. - Recognizes that one of the largest threats to your business's production time is undoubtedly kiln downtime. The structure of a kiln contains a kiln shell, kiln tires, and tire support pads, it is inevitable that the kiln tires will move respective to the shell as the kiln rotates during operation. If the plane of the tire does not sit perpendicular to the kiln's rotating axis, the tire's rotation will slightly differ from the shell's rotation.
This circumstance can ultimately initiate:
High tire clearance and creep
- High tire clearance and creep
- Kiln support wear
- Tire bore wear
- Refractory failures that result in high kiln maintenance costs and lost production time
The Solution: Swittzer Technologies Inc. – Lube Bar for Predictive Kiln Maintenance Luckily, you can utilize the power of predictive kiln maintenance to protect your kilns from unnecessary wear and tear. Swittzer – Lube Bar Kiln Tire Lubricant is a specially formulated blend of graphite, copper flakes and soft metal powders enclosed within a natural carrier. When applied to your kiln, Swittzer – Lube Bar dissipates into your kiln, simultaneously lubricating both the support pad outside diameter and the kiln tire internal diameter. This in turn:
- minimizes friction across the support pads
- decreases tire retainer pressure
- diminishes the effects of tire bore and support pad wear
- discourages overall kiln support wear
