The ring frame machine is a critical phase in the yarn making process, as it decides the quality and quantity of yarn manufactured. It is in these machines that maximum number of drafts can be employed. Speed of the ring frame spindles has a big say on the yarn production rate. With the spindle reaching speeds of 22,000 RPM, several components like the needle bearing, phosphor bronze bush, metal thrust pad bearings, coil springs and so on need to be lubricated continuously.
Constant movement causes residues to develop and decomposition of oil hindering lubrication and eventually seizure of the spindle. It’s a gruelling test for any lubricant that needs to perform ceaselessly under different material pairings and intense pressure, without deterioration. Regular oils have low oxidation stability and need to be changed at short duration for effective lubrication. Frequent re-lubrication of the spindle results in unnecessary machine down time and man power cost, not to mention the consequences of production stoppage.
Compared to conventional lubricants, ‘Beruspin Highgrade 10′ by BECHEM provides extended life of over 12 months and can provide significant savings considering manpower cost and idle time cost.
Ring Frame Spindle Lubricants
Beruspin Highgrade 10
‘Beruspin Highgrade 10’ is an ultra refined oil with low viscosity best suited for easy flow and slow decomposition.

Applications and Properties
The unique pictograms help identify primary characteristics of the lubricant as well as key applications and industries it has been established at a glance. However the final recommendation would still have to be by the BECHEM specialist after having studied application and its operating environment. As the saying goes, ‘every problem has a unique solution, if only, one is looking for it’. This is the core philosophy to our approach towards ‘Application Engineering’ and staying true to ‘speciality’
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.
