SHAFTCOAT - PROTECT YOUR TRUNNION BEARINGS AND SHAFTS DURING START-UPS

SHAFTCOAT - PROTECT YOUR TRUNNION BEARINGS AND SHAFTS DURING START-UPS


PROTECT YOUR TRUNNION BEARINGS AND SHAFTS DURING START-UPS
When trunnions are idled the service lubricant drains off the shaft and back into the oil sump, leaving the shaft dry and void of lubricant. This results in dry metal-to-metal startups which create friction and wear. Lubrication is required to minimize friction and wear to the shaft and bushing, prior to the mechanical dipper transferring the service lube oil for lubrication.  Application before start-up will provide a thin layer of the protective lubricant film around the shaft to prevent welding, galling and surface deformation.

SHAFTCOAT is fully compatible with petroleum1 and synthetic2-based fluids, like ExxonMobil SHC-680 & 1000, commonly used for lubrication of the trunnion bearings. 

Application Rate:  1-2 Qts per bearing to coat and protect shaft and bearings during “cold starts”.

Each Case:  Eight (8) 1-Qt Bottles

Advantages
(1) Easy to apply with light-weight bottles. 
(2) Fully Compatible1&2  whereas commonly used STP additive actually deteriorates demulsibility in your service oil creating foam and ruining the oil. 
(3) Eliminates possible contamination of service oil drums and/or cross-contamination of service oil.
