About Paper Industry

Perfect Solutions For Any Industrials

NANOGUARD understands the important role lubricants play in PAPER MILL operations. We have a wide range of high-performance greases and oils that will protect your equipment.

Using the correct lubricants means you will have better and longer protection of expensive equipment, improved performance of your equipment, less pollution, lower downtime, longer inter-service intervals and most importantly energy savings, which is observed almost immediately


Key Challenges

The PAPER industry has some of the toughest operating conditions in the industrial marketplace, including:

•  heavy loads

•  sharp shock loads

•  high speeds

•  high temperatures

•  exposure to the elements, sawdust, moisture, etc

•  constant presence of contaminants such as cement dust

To run their operations, they use a wide range of equipment, including:

•  gears – open and closed

•  grinders

•  motors

•  turbines (power generation equipment on site)

•  exhaust fans and

•  bearings


The NANOGUARD solution is based on unique, globally patented, nano-molecules of IF-WS2 (Inorganic Fullerene Tungsten Disulphide). Our lubricants are high performing with anti-wear, anti-friction and extreme pressure properties to give you excellent friction reduction, equipment protection and energy savings. Suitable for all synthetic and semi-synthetic industrial lubricants


Following are some of the common lubricant pain points for cement and concrete operations, along with NANOGUAD solutions

GEARBOXES – Overheating

Overloaded gearboxes often overheat, resulting in expensive premature wear and failure of the gears. Other common mechanical issues include emulsification of the gear oil due to water contamination and extreme foaming.

NANOGUARD gear concentrated additives provide amazing protection against shock loading and extreme protection (EP) under high temperatures. Also, any, water contamination is separated and water can be periodically drained off. This simple solution prevents rust and corrosion in the gearbox, and dramatically extends the life of the gear oil as well as the gearbox

GEARS – Worn open gears on kilns and ball mills

Downtime in Kilns and Ball mills, the two most critical pieces of equipment for cement plants, can cause significant revenue loss. Failure is not an option. However, their open gears regularly suffer from pitting and other wear due to insufficient lubrication and shock loading. The use of asphaltic-based lubricants implies this wear is not seen by maintenance personnel. Instead, elevated temperatures and vibrations are indicators of problems

BEARINGS – Failing

Greases that do not seal effectively will allow contaminants to enter

NANOGUARD has greases that are extremely viscous and nearly impervious to water washout and can easily handle heavy shock loads. Our greases are available both as concentrates to mix into your base grease as well as fully formulated greases – for both open and closed gears

NANOGUARD offers full-service, qualified support for cement and concrete plants

In addition to onsite equipment assessment, consultation and service, NANOGUARD provides the following customization and value-added options:

  • Oil analysis program featuring expert interpretation
  • Lubrication education and training
