Within months, cement plants must endure freezing cold and scorching heat. In spite of such extreme conditions, cement plants need to operate efficiently, safely, and smoothly. A good place to start is to make sure that your cement equipment is properly lubricated.
Our automatic lubrication systems are high-performance, low-maintenance and cost-effective, so they effortlessly handle the demanding and challenging conditions of the cement industry. By delivering precise, uniform amounts of lubrication to cement industry machinery, our lubrication systems reduce friction and wear, prevent corrosion, dissipate heat, and keep your machinery running efficiently.

With proven intermittent spray technology, you can save on lubricant by reducing consumption. It’s perfect for today’s synthetic and specialty lubricants. It also reduces the wear and tears on your pinions and bull gears. We offer optional custom enclosures to make installation a breeze and increased output up-time. You’ll reduce component costs as well with extended gear and pinion life. Optional spray nozzles with “push-button” clean-outFor cold temperatures, you can use heated nozzles and enclosures. Afterblows purge grease from nozzles. Programmable controller for easier adjustment. Synthetic/specialty gear lubricants and controlled intermittent spray reduce vibration and noise. Unlike traditional spray lubrication systems, intermittent spray lubrication monitors both air flow and lubricant flow to the nozzle tip, ensuring the right amount is applied at the right time. capability are available for stand-alone designs. Unmatched lubricant delivery accuracy is just another benefit of this product!

What is lubricant in concrete?

In the context of concrete, a lubricant is a substance that is added to the concrete mixture to modify its properties and improve the workability during the mixing, placing, and finishing processes. Lubricants in concrete are also known as plasticizers, water reducers, or superplasticizers.

The main purpose of using lubricants in concrete is to reduce the amount of water needed for workability without compromising the fluidity or consistency of the mixture. By reducing the water content, the lubricant allows for a more homogeneous and flowable concrete mixture, making it easier to pour, place, and consolidate.

Lubricants work by dispersing and separating the cement particles, which reduces the friction and enhances the mobility of the mixture. This effect leads to improved flow characteristics, increased slump (the measure of the consistency of fresh concrete), and better overall workability. Lubricants can also increase the cohesion and reduce the air voids in the concrete, resulting in a denser and more durable finished product.

Different types of lubricants are used in concrete, depending on the desired outcome and specific application. These may include lignosulfonates, melamine sulfonates, polycarboxylates, and naphthalene-based compounds. Each lubricant has its own chemical composition and dosage requirements, and they can have different effects on the concrete’s setting time, strength development, and other properties.

It is important to note that while lubricants improve the workability and fluidity of concrete, they should be used within recommended dosage limits to avoid negative effects on the strength, durability, and long-term performance of the hardened concrete. Therefore, it is essential to follow manufacturer guidelines and consult with concrete experts to ensure the proper and safe use of lubricants in concrete mixes.
