Modern day textile production involves high degree of automation to control high speed precision processes.


Quality of textile output depends on efficient and precise working of multitude of moving parts involving bearings and sliding elements, drive and control chains and complex gear mechanisms. These mechanical parts are exposed to severe forces and demanding conditions. In order to provide effective lubrication for textile machinery, the lubricant needs to absorb high speed vibrations, control temperature variations, be resistant to chemicals and contaminants. Extended lubricant service life with minimal maintenance is of utmost importance. Considering the numerous lubricating points in a typical textile machinery, lubricants with extended service life, help reduce labor costs and shop floor productivity loss significantly.
