The purpose of lubrication on tissue machines is to ensure that bearings, gears, and couplings operate smoothly for a long time by keeping the metal surfaces separated. Lubricants reduce friction, heat, and wear by maintaining an oil film between the moving metal surfaces. Oils and greases can both be used as lubricants, and each type has its advantages. Lubricants can be applied manually or by circulating or automatic systems. Circulating lube oil systems use heaters and water-cooled heat exchangers to maintain the oil in the proper temperature range, and filters to remove solid debris. Water and solid particulates can be removed from oils by vacuum dehydrators and centrifuges.

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the functions of lubricants on tissue machines
  • List the safety hazards and safety guidelines associated with lubrication systems
  • Describe sliding, rolling, and fluid friction
  • List the advantages of grease lubricants
  • List and describe the main components of a circulating lube oil system, like those used on tissue machines

The following key questions are answered in this module:

Why do different lubrication points sometimes require lube oils with different viscosities?
Thicker or higher viscosity oils are used to lubricate slower speed or more heavily loaded applications, and lower viscosity oils are used for higher speed, more lightly loaded applications.

Why are grease lubricants sometimes used instead of lubricating oils?
Grease lubricants have several advantages over oils: they provide some sealing action, protect against corrosion, and adhere better to metal surfaces.

Why is important to prevent lube oil from overheating?
Lube oils can break down chemically if they overheat.

How is the cleanliness or condition of the lube oil circulating filters monitored?
Differential pressures around the filters are monitored and used to indicate filter plugging and need for replacement.

When lube oil is sent out for analysis, what is analyzed?
A typical analysis will determine dirt content, water content, wear metals present, and the level of oxidation. The amount of additives can also be determined.

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

The main function of lubricants is to keep moving metal surfaces separate in order to reduce friction. On tissue machines, lubricants are used to reduce friction, wear and heat in bearings, gears and drive couplings. Common lubrication points include roll bearings, dryer gears, drive gearboxes and couplings, pump bearings, fan and blower bearings, and agitator bearings. Lubrication is accomplished with the use of various types of oils and greases supplied to the process by different types of lubrication systems. Lubrication methods, types, and procedures have a major on the life of machine components, uptime, overall reliability, and profitability.

Customer Q&A

Ask a Question

Sorry, we're missing some information

How do I log in to watch a video that I have already paid for?

Easy! Moments after you purchase your pay-per-view (PPV) course, you'll receive an email with login details. Just click the link and log in with your user name and password and you're on your way!

I would like to have some of my employees take 5 of your driving related courses, how can i set this up?

We're in the process of making bulk purchases and purchases for multiple users easier. But for now, you can order multiple courses and just let us know who you'd like to assign courses to. With an email for each user, we can set up their training plans and make sure everyone gets the eLearning assignments they need.

How can I get your paper-making courses for free?

Well, we can't blame you for asking... And while we're a for-profit company, there are situations with students and certain educational organizations where we can help out with a selection of eLearning. However, our online courses are extremely economical. And our paper industry courses are in very high demand. So, without knowing more about your situation, we think you'll get loads of value from the $39 you'll spend on any of our premium courses.

Do you have eLearning in Portuguese?

Yes, we do! And in addition to primary English narration, we produce many courses in a growing number of languages, including Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Russian, Tamil, and Thai.

I'm unemployed, but I really like your eLearning. Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?

Yes! All of our courses allow you to print a completion certficate upon successfully passing the integrated test at the end of eLearning. In the future, we'll have badges for you to use in your LinkedIn profiles.
