Reduce the need and cost of bearing greasing

For the Food and Beverage Industry, the consequences of ineffective lubrication can be catastrophic; excessive downtime, food and operator safety risks including monitoring of additional HACCP, and ultimately an expensive toll on the maintenance budget.

Is it time to re-think your bearing maintenance and move to relubrication-free or greased-for-life bearing technologies?

How new thinking about bearing greasing can impact goals, such as:

HACCP benefits food and beverage industry

Food safety compliance
Remove HACCP points in
your food safety program

Reduce costs in food and beverage industry

Cost reduction
Reduce planned and unplanned
downtime and maintenance costs

Improve OEE effectiveness

Asset availability
Improve Original Equipment
Effectiveness (OEE)

Reduce grease wast in food and beverage industry

UN Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs)
Reduce grease waste
and clean-up disposal

SKF Lubrication re-greasing food and beverage industry

Re-thinking lubrication to meet day-to-day pressures

 Given the pressure to constantly reduce cost, prevent food contamination, and increase environmental responsibility, a traditional lubrication management approach may no longer be effective.
A minor change and new thinking on greasing bearings or not can make the difference.
