Modern day textile production involves high degree of automation to control high speed precision processes.

Quality of textile output depends on efficient and precise working of multitude of moving parts involving bearings and sliding elements, drive and control chains and complex gear mechanisms. These mechanical parts are exposed to severe forces and demanding conditions. In order to provide effective lubrication for textile machinery, the lubricant needs to absorb high speed vibrations, control temperature variations, be resistant to chemicals and contaminants. Extended lubricant service life with minimal maintenance is of utmost importance. Considering the numerous lubricating points in a typical textile machinery, lubricants with extended service life, help reduce labour costs and shop floor productivity loss significantly.

BECHEM high-performance textile lubricants have exceeded established performance standards of the past and set new benchmarks. BECHEM products have been recommended by leading textile machine manufacturers for its role in reducing maintenance down time and enhancing machine reliability.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can find all answers here if you need them

A grease with low base oil viscosity (between 15 cst to 20 cst) and effectively controlled solid particle size plays a major role in reduction of operating temperatures of top roll end bushes, especially at high drawing speeds of over 500 metres per minute.

In lubrication engineering, the base oil viscosity should be lower with increasing speeds. Jockey pulley bearings fall under high speed category (6500 rpm to 7500 rpm for a spindle speed of 19,500 rpm to 22,500 rpm). The base oil viscosity of regular greases typically used in the Spinning industry varies between 120 cst to 160 cst for the application. Considering the high speed of bearings, the viscosity is excessive for the application and the primary reason for power surge after the re-greasing process.

BECHEM recommends a low base oil viscosity grease (between 15 cst to 25 cst) in minimizing the internal friction whilst maintaining the desired lubricant film and thereby eliminating the power surge after re-greasing process.

Ring frame spindles consists of four friction partners (Needle roller bearing, Spiral spring, Phosphor bronze bush and Thrust pad), all which have to be lubricated by one oil. Oxidation of oil in the spindles after few months of operation is the primary reason for frequent oil change. An ultra-refined high quality mineral oil (10 cst) with excellent oxidation stability can extend oil changing frequency.
