Lubricants for the Corrugated Cardboard Industry

The Role of Lubricants in the Corrugated Cardboard Industry

In the intricate world of corrugated cardboard manufacturing, every component and process plays a pivotal role in ensuring the production of high-quality and efficient products. One such essential aspect is the use of lubricants, which are critical for maintaining the smooth operation of corrugators – the machinery responsible for creating the corrugated layers of cardboard.  Specifying the right lubricant is crucial, and with increasing legislation, ISO 21469 accreditations should play an important role in the decision making process, which is why we work with, and recommend Vickers Oils Food Grade lubricants. 

Vickers food grade lubricants include hydraulic oils, gearbox lubricants and greases, compressor oil, cleaner spray and chain spray, to name a few. 

Key Considerations in Choosing Corrugator Lubricants:

Corrugators involve numerous moving parts, and friction is a natural byproduct of these complex mechanical processes. A high-quality lubricant is crucial in reducing friction between these components, ensuring smooth operation, and preventing wear and tear.

Corrugator machines generate considerable heat during their operation. Lubricants must be capable of withstanding high temperatures to maintain their effectiveness and protect machinery components from thermal degradation.

Corrugator equipment is often exposed to moisture and harsh environmental conditions. Lubricants should provide effective corrosion protection to prevent rust and other forms of degradation, ultimately prolonging the lifespan of machinery.

In the cardboard manufacturing process, cleanliness is paramount. Lubricants must resist contamination by dust, debris, and other particles that can compromise the quality of the final product.
