Davis-Standard: Keeping the extruder “engine” primed

Articles
hey you

Just as it's important to keep the engine of your car well-maintained, keeping the gearcase in prime condition can significantly impact your bottom line. Energy consumption, processing efficiency, product quality and outputs are all influenced by gearcase operation. To ensure longevity and performance, regular maintenance and inspections are recommended. Here are five tips to keep the engine of your extruder running strong.

  • Routine inspection – Visually inspect the gearcase on a regular basis, including listening for new noises.
  • Oil and filter changes – This should be done every 4,000 machine hours with the same oil brand and grade.
  • Monitor bearings – Look for increased bronze and steel particles and cast-iron powder. Build-up indicates it's time for a replacement.
  • Monitor temperature – The operating temperature of the sump oil should never exceed 71°C (160°F).
  • Be proactive – The cost to rebuild before failure is less expensive than after failure.

Davis-Standard can help any client with a retrofit or rebuild. In a typically retrofit, Davis-Standard replace, reassemble and reset all bearings, and install a new oil system if needed. The gearcase is then tested and repainted. Gearcases are typically shipped to the company′s facility in Pawcatuck, Conn., and work is completed within a week. Gearcases are shipped back to the customer with a full factory warranty. On-site installation is optional.
