Case Study: FLOOD-GARD® Biofuels

An ethanol producer had several screw conveyors driven by gearboxes which had lubricant loss due to failing lip seals. Standard nitrile lip seals would degrade due to temperature and contamination, requiring a complete gearbox rebuild every six months. The end user did not stock spare gearboxes, making it necessary to have them sent out for rebuild which is costly in terms of material, labor and downtime.
