The production of cane sugar is carried out from the planting-harvesting stage, preparation and grinding for juice extraction and the final stage of manufacturing sugar and by-products. At this stage of the production process, lubricants represent a very important cost and environmental impact. Our company collaborates with the provision of the entire range of lubricants that are consumed and, in particular, in the stage of greatest demand for lubricant volume in a sugar mill, which is the preparation and grinding stage for extraction of sugar cane juice. sugar: here we provide tangible and validated improvements.

Cane grinding has been carried out in tandem mills for 200 years and has been characterized, in the last century, by the use of enormous quantities of asphalt oils to lubricate the large bearings, bronzes or pillow blocks, that support the axles of the cane. grinding cylinders of the mills. These mills operate with very high pressing pressure on the sugar cane and in a hostile environment with great aqueous and solid contamination. Large mill drive rings were also lubricated with asphalt oil in large quantities.

LAAPSA, from its manufacturing plant in Argentina, responds to global trends to eradicate the use of asphalt oils, whether due to Safety and Hygiene objections, very negative environmental impact or deterioration in the yield of planting fields, where it was contaminated with those lubricants. Also the reduction of purchase costs, always in force, is our response.

LAAPSA responds to these trends initially in our country, with the development and application of new technology of extra high viscosity oils, for those large grinding mechanisms, achieving consumption reductions of up to 10 times compared to traditional asphalt oils. This new, disruptive technology that we introduced changed the way of lubricating cane grinding tandems and has allowed us to become leaders specialized in tandem lubrication, with a presence in more than 30 countries that grind sugar cane. In addition to lubrication products designed for specific applications, we understand that our proposal is enhanced, based on decisions that arise from in-depth surveys of the productive field.

Our continuous development of specific products and the knowledge gathered in the field of application has allowed us, once again, to interpret new trends and needs for continuous improvement. Thus, we recently presented another disruption in the lubrication of cane mills. Currently, new improvements are being made in consumption rates with our lubricants, with measurable cost reductions in equipment maintenance and improved logistics in a world that is becoming more expensive in this regard. The drastic reduction of the environmental impact is another favorable consequence, with greater safety and reliability of application through the new lubricants.”
