Modernization of lubrication system

Case: XXX:n paper mill in Russia


The drying section of PM8 did not have an automatic lubrication system at all.

  • 84 lubrication points
  • Oil was manually added once per month
  • There were many problems with water


A FluidCirc®-LU- 400-DS was installed (Oil tank 400 L, capacity 40 L/min)

  • After installation, the FluidCirc® removed 30-40 litres of water from the oil daily.
  • It was recognized that water was condensing on the bearings in two cylinders.
  • The root cause in the cylinders was fixed.
  • According to the chief mechanical engineer, the FluidCirc® lubrication system is working extremely well and there are no more problems with water.
