Cost-saving through smart actions: third revamping of a skinpass mill lubrication system to reduce lubricant consumption. Danieli Service, in cooperation with Rebs Turbolub®, recently commissioned an oil-air lubrication system at the Sahaviryia Steel Plant in Bangsaphan (Thailand).
After successfully revamping the first two competitor’s skin -pass mills, Sahaviryia Steel assigned Danieli Service the revamping of a third skin-pass mill that had been running with an old and unhealthy oil-mist system.
Danieli Service (Thailand) replaced this obsolete oil-mist system with a modern oil-air Rebs Turbolub® system and modified the back-up roll chocks to allow the optimal lubrication of bearings.
The result obtained can be summarized as a drastic reduction in oil consumption from 20 liters to 2 liters of oil/ day, in addition to a much cleaner working environment due to the complete removal of the characteristic oil-fog made necessary by the oil-mist system.
The revamping was commissioned in less than 4 days and Sahaviryia Steel has reconfirmed its satisfaction in the Service provided by Danieli Service.
