Paper machines are highly efficient systems that form, dry and compact a paper web from a mixture of paper fibers, water and aggregates at high speed. Lubricants make an important contribution to safe and trouble-free operation in the paper mill.

In addition to the paper machine itself, many pumps and drives can be found in the field of stock preparation. On the paper machine itself various hydraulic systems are in use, depending on the configuration also heat transfer oils and greases. Also there lubricants ensure low-friction and reliable operation.

In this seminar you will learn …

  • How lubricants work in principle
  • What are the advantages of synthetic oils and where does their use make sense
  • Which special requirements lubricants have to meet in papermaking
  • Which system parameters are decisive for the selection of the right lubricant
  • How the required quality of the lubricants can be safely described
  • How the professional handling of lubricants avoids recurring practice problems
  • How professional oil monitoring works and helps you increase plant availability

Target group

  • Specialists and managers from maintenance and service
  • Technical consultants and distributors in the lubricant industry
  • Specialist and sales staff of OEM (component manufacturers)
  • Specialist personnel of service companies for condition monitoring and oil care
