6315 MONOLEC® WAY LUBRICANT HEALTH CARE LAUNDRY, Albuquerque, New Mexico Hypro Flatwork Ironer CUSTOMER PROFILE Health Care Laundry provides laundry services for hospitals in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico areas. This location was established in 1998, and was set up with used equipment. The plant has been an LE customer since 2002. They run two shifts per day, six days per week. Jason Stanek is the Chief Engineer. APPLICATION Commercial laundries generate a lot of moist heat and copious amounts of lint. Since lint is basically cellulose, it can become quite abrasive. All of the sheets and towels are run through Hypro Flatwork Ironers, Class 141. This design of Hypro Ironer uses steam at a pressure of 120 psi and the lubrication system is set up for a way lubricant. It is basically a centralized lube system with a tank, pump, and tubes leading to all the roller bearings on the unit. The slow injection of the way lube is designed to purge the lint from the bearings. AREA OF INTEREST While using a major brand way lubricant at a high flow rate, the lubricant was way lubricant and the bearings would seize. The temperature of the bearings run a minimum of 250°F (121°C) and can peak at 300°F (149°C) during the summer. Mr. Stanek was looking for a way lubricant that could withstand this harsh operating environment. LE SOLUTION LE Lubrication Consultant David Hutt recommenced 6315 MONOLEC® Way Lubricant to address Mr. Stanek’s concerns. LE’s 6315 is a high quality lubricant for ways and sliding surfaces. It has excellent lubricity and good adhesive properties. It contains MONOLEC®, LE’s exclusive wear-reducing additive and exhibits superior performance in the Cincinnati Milacron Thermal Stability Test. CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS Since introducing LE’s 6315 nearly five years ago, Mr. Stanek has not lost a single bearing. Additionally, he reports there has been a 3:1 reduction in the amount of product used. His comment was, “It’s great. No worries.” He also uses LE Products in his personal vehicles and has recommended LE to many of his friends.
