Quaker Chemical Corporation Introduces Roll Lubrication to the 4-High Steckel Mill

Quaker Chemical Corporation introduced roll lubrication to the 4-high Steckel mill at Nucor Steel Tuscaloosa Inc. which resulted in advantages such as significant extension to roll service life and a notable reduction in mill torque. To further understand the impact of roll lubrication, a trial was performed which yielded the mechanism and advantages of backup roll lubrication in the reversing hot rolling mill: Fewer roll changes are needed with lubricated backup rolls, as the normal pressure and friction traction between the backup and work rolls are reduced, which translates to extended roll service lives and lower roll costs; Roll bite lubrication lowers the mill separating force and torques by increasing the slipping zones and counteracting the length of the breaking zone; and bite and roll slippage are no longer factors with the presence of lubrication after oiling time is schemed.
