The Problems Our Products Address

The structure of a kiln contains a kiln shell, kiln tires, and tire support pads. It is inevitable that the kiln tires will move respective to the shell as the kiln rotates during operation. If the plane of the tire does not sit perpendicular to the kiln's rotating axis, the tire's rotation will slightly differ from the shell's rotation. This circumstance can ultimately initiate:

  • high tire clearance and creep
  • high shell ovality
  • kiln support wear
  • tire bore wear
  • refractory failures that result in high kiln maintenance costs and lost production time

The Solution for Effective Preventive Kiln Maintenance

You can utilize the power of predictive kiln maintenance to protect your kilns from unnecessary wear and tear. Anion SlickBar ® Kiln Tire Lubricant is a specially formulated blend of graphite, copper flakes and soft metal powders enclosed within a natural carrier. When applied to your kiln, SlickBar® dissipates and simultaneously lubricates both the support pad outside diameter and the kiln tire internal diameter. This in turn:

  • minimizes friction across the support pads
  • decreases tire retainer pressure
  • diminishes the effects of tire bore and support pad wear
  • discourages overall kiln support wear

SlickBar® is the most economical tire/shell melting lubricant available on the market today. It does not contain any hazardous ingredients and is considered 100% natural. Therefore, it does not emit any hazardous gases throughout your facility as you lubricate your kilns with the product.
