STEEL MILL ENHANCES SAFETY AND GENERATES ANNUAL SAVINGS OF MORE THAN €17,000

March 3rd , 2017

What was the Trouble at the Mill?

In a bid to improve employee safety and lower operating costs, the steel mill operator contacted its local ExxonMobil representative, for help. They went to the mill to investigate and discovered that the facility was lubricating its rolling mill bearings with a competitor’s lithium-based mineral grease. By itself, this would not have been a problem, but the steel mill operates in extremely high temperatures that, when combined with high loads, softened the grease. This resulted in poor lubrication of the bearings, requiring operators to increase initial grease input and re-lubrication intervals. This led to excess grease leaking from the bearings onto the plant floor, which posed a slipping safety risk to employees.
