QUAKER QUAKEROL ® HB-9

CASE STUDY − HOT STEEL ROLLING

 

CHALLENGES


 

A hot mill was looking for solutions to the following issues on its 6 stand 60″ Hot Mill with Coil Box:

  • Severe slipping
  • Severe peeling issues with certain lubricants
  • Salt and pepper scale defects

To help improve their operations Quaker proposed using QUAKER QUAKEROL ® HB-9, a high performance, cationic rolling lubricant, along with Quaker′s Mobile Industrial Dispersion Application System (MIDAS) to achieve the following benefits:

  • Load reductions (reduction in oil concentration)
  • Reduction in roll peeling
  • Reduction in salt and pepper scale defects
  • Reduction in roll peeling on lubricated stands

 

THE SOLUTION


 

In addition to QUAKER QUAKEROL ® HB-9 Quaker proposed the use of a zoned back-up roll application and Quaker′s Mobile Industrial Dispersion Application System (MIDAS) to achieve the full benefits of QUAKER QUAKEROL ® HB-9. Quaker wanted to show that by using QUAKER QUAKEROL ® HB-9 and installing a MIDAS System, there would be visible improvements in the following areas:

  • Load reductions (reduction in oil concentration)
  • Reduction in roll peeling
  • Reduction in salt and pepper scale defects
  • Reduction in roll peeling on lubricated stands

Since switching to QUAKER QUAKEROL ® HB-9 and placing a permanent MIDAS System on F1, the Hot Mill has seen drastic improvements in its operations in the following areas:

  • Significant load reductions
  • F1 rolls no longer peeled
  • Elimination of salt and pepper scaling defects
  • Elimination of roll peeling on lubricated stands
  • Pickle line speed increased by 200 fpm
