Name : Granulco inc
Industry : Wood pellets
Location : Sacré Cœur de Saguenay
contact : Eddy Gauthier

Located in Sacré-Cœur, on the Upper North Shore of the Province of Québec, in the Boisaco Group industrial complex, the Granulco plant produces ecofriendly wood pellets for domestic and commercial stoves or furnaces, and high quality granular horse litter.
 

The company operates two pellet mills (200HP and 400HP) 12 hours a day. Before moving to the SINTO’s grease, the company used the MYSTIK JT6. Here are the results :

COMPAGNY : GRANULE SM inc.
ACTIVITY : GRANULE DE BOIS
CITY : SAINT-THÉODORE D’ACTON
Person in charge : Maxime Desmarais


Granule SM operates a wood pellet mill of 150 HP 12 hours a day 5 days a week. It produces wood pellets for heating purposes and litters.
 
Two to three bearings needed to be replaced each month and the equipment had to be lubricated every 15 minutes with almost 70 grams of lubricant each time.  Each of these damaged bearings caused a two-hour loss of production.

Before meeting with Sinto’s lubrication experts, people at Granule SM tried lubricants like LUCAS, Mystik and Prolab without ever finding a solution to their problem. Sinto’s experts advised them on the type of lubricant to use in that particular case and on the best lubrication practices for this type of equipment: Lubricate every 4 hours with 45 grams of Sinto’s HT2, a lubricant specially designed for this type of machine.

THE RESULTS WERW IMMEDIATE AND POSITIVE:

  • Granule SM stopped damaging bearings.  No bearing has been replaced for more than 2 months.
  • No more stops in production nor expansive repairs.
  • Production has increased by 30% and the company will soon install a second 150 HP wood pellet mill.
  • Lubricant consumption went from 8 3200g-tubes once a day to one tube every three days.
