SKF Driveline Services: Iron and steel-making
Maintaining uptime under severe conditionsAs the heart of the iron and steel making plant, the blast furnace and converter simply must maintain uptime. Consequently, the reliability of the drivelines that keep overhead cranes and conveyors moving is equally crucial. Unfortunately, extreme temperatures, shock loads, contaminants make downtime difficult to prevent, as does the tendency to push drivelines beyond their design parameters.
The result? As drivelines degrade, torque or power losses limit performance. Eventually, breakdowns force costly, unplanned stops and time-consuming, dangerous repairs.
