Tetra Pak dry lubrication kit

Monday, 06 February, 2017 | Supplied by: Tetra Pak Marketing Pty Ltd

Tetra Pak’s dry lubrication kit for packaging line conveyor belts and distribution equipment helps users cut water and electricity consumption, and reduce the man-hours required for machine maintenance.

Traditional conveyor lubrication, known as wet lubrication, uses high quantities of water mixed with oil, leaving both the equipment and factory floor wet. The dry lubrication kit does not require the use of water but just very small quantities of oil. A drop of food-grade oil roughly the size of a pea (80 mm3) is directly added to the conveyor belt to reduce its friction with the package.

Compared with wet lubrication, the lubrication process provides an improved environmental footprint, saving an average of 35,000 L of water per filling line each year and reducing electricity costs. The fully automated system ensures precision, while producing a 75% reduction in man-hours for maintenance, and improved health and safety for staff on the operation floor.

The system reduces running costs by an estimated 50%, according to the company.
