One of the Largest Cement Producer in India puts a seal to their oil spillage problems in Gear Motors with MOSIL

Introduction

The cement industry is the building block of a nation's growth. Infrastructure growth leads to India's growth has resulted in India being the 2nd largest producer of cement in the world. In order to retain this position, the cement industry needs to make sure that their plants run without much interruptions and their equipment function at their best at all times. Be it Summer, Winter or Rains.

One of such equipment is packing plant belt conveyor powered by a gear motor.

Gear Motor is commonly used in applications where equipment needs to exert force in order to move a heavy object. For operating such a critical function it is important that the gear motor runs smoothly.

One of the Largest Cement Producer in India faced an issue with their gear motors where it required frequent cleaning and top up due to oil leakage. It regularly operated at reduced oil level which caused excessive wear leading to unscheduled Breakdown.

The oil leakage leads to dirty floors and warranted regular oil level checkup which wasn't reliable as it depended on the manual labour.
