Krytox Lubricants Does Not Oxidize
Nearly every plant has a machine where the bearings tend to run hot. After a relatively short service life, the lubricant begins to cook. It begins turning black, forming varnish and tar on the bearing components, and machine life rapidly deteriorates.
Krytox is the ideal solution for just such a situation. Made from PFPE base oil, Krytox quite simply does not oxidize. It does not form varnishes or solids and can survive continuous service temperatures far beyond where the best synthetic hydrocarbons oxidize rapidly.
What to do
- Start with a new clean bearing, making sure that all hydrocarbons and preservative oils have been removed with a solvent
- Pack the bearing with the correct grade of Krytox grease or lubricate the bearing with the correct grade of Krytox oil
- Make sure the bearing cavity is cleaned and then filled with the correct amount of Krytox
- Change the fittings on the lubrication ports and clearly tag them to indicate the machine is lubricated with Krytox so that contamination with hydrocarbons is avoided
- Asphalt pumps
- Soot blowers
- Some vertical pumps with greased bearings
- Induced draft fan bearings
