Industrial

Industrial applications can be found in many industries and range from hydraulic cylinders to heavy duty equipment. Many industrial applications are in harsh environments including dirt and mud, chemicals, a range of temperatures, and hard to reach locations, making maintenance a challenge. Equipment down time for maintenance and repairs can be detrimental to the industry.

CIP Composites offers solutions for rigorous industrial applications by extending wear life while reducing or eliminating external lubricants and undesired maintenance. As a general guide, CIP Composite bushing materials can replace your current bronze or nylon based wear and bearing materials. Sold in tubes or sheets for easy machining onsite, or custom manufactured with short lead times.

Hydraulic and Pneumatic

Hydraulic-Cylinder

Hydraulic cylinders are the ideal choice for a host of mobile and industrial applications where power and reliability, along with low operating costs are required. Hydraulic (and even pneumatic and electrical actuator) cylinders are handling more demanding applications than in previous years, such as the use of smaller cylinders which force higher and higher operating pressures. Manufacturers and servicers alike depend on quality components to ensure that their finished product meet or exceeds the customer requirements including long service life, affordability, and availability.

CIP Composite wear rings can meet these requirements by providing solutions for high temperatures, large size requirements, high loads, high bearing pressure, and the need for excellent stability in water, corrosive fluids and chemical solutions. The cost associated with equipment downtime and repairs can be reduced by using CIP Composites which are custom made using high quality materials with lead times that meet your needs.

CIP wear rings are designed to allow smooth operation and high side loads while protecting the sealing elements and preventing metal to metal contact in hydraulic cylinders. They are preferred where high performance, large diameters and/or high temperatures are required. CIP wear rings reduce overall maintenance and increase wear life.

Mining

The mining industry around the world is faced with the challenge to innovate and develop technology and strategies to increase productivity while decreasing energy consumption and environmental impact. Mining companies are considering innovation towards sustainable cost reduction strategies to improve margins, borrowing solutions from other industries and working with suppliers to find novel approaches to an age old problem.

The mining industry is notoriously tough on equipment and components, with demanding applications which often have inhospitable conditions, high pressures and impact loading that take a toll on the rotating and moving equipment. Dirty or caustic environments can often be detrimental to the life of bearings, especially those that require grease lubrication. CIP Composites are self-lubricated therefore eliminate the need for lubrication lines and fittings, specifically in applications that require high loads with slow rotation or oscillation. CIP bearing solutions are used for a wide range of mining applications, providing an alternative to greased bronze bearings, thrust washers, and wear pads.

Agricultural

Agriculture can be found in almost every corner of our planet, with a wide range of crops and environments, one thing remains consistent, the need to maximize quality and production while controlling costs.  These demands start with seed and soil, and then follow a product’s path to the consumer. Operators are looking for solutions to reduce maintenance costs, improve production capacity, and avoid equipment failures in the critical harvest timeframe.

Working long hours in conditions that go from wet and muddy, to dry and dusty, bearing components must be capable of providing wear resistance and efficient operation with little to no maintenance during a season.  Often equipment is set aside until the following season when it will be called upon again to perform. CIP’s self-lubricating bearings operate without the need for grease or maintenance, and can be custom machined to match your specific piece of equipment. CIP’s composite materials will not corrode, work wet or dry, and provide the stability to handle high loads and impact even in the extreme temperatures found around the world. With a wide range of materials we can provide a bearing product that will meet your requirements and budget.

Benefits

Example agricultural equipment that can utilize self lubricated composite materials include:

  • Hay Bale Stacker
  • Turf Sod Cutter
  • Harvest Equipment: Grape, Nut, Citrus, Corn
  • Plowing Equipment
  • Crop Sprayers

Wood Products

Wood product facilities are working to create efficient, high quality organizations that are capable to produce finished products with the quality looked for and at a rate of the customer demand while resulting in the least possible waste. Mill or line shut downs can be devastating to the industry, therefore the use of parts that reduce maintenance and have a long service life are imperative.

CIP Composites are self-lubricating, eliminating the need for grease lines, reducing regular greasing maintenance schedules. CIP Composites can withstand high impact loads, vibration and shock loading in wood product applications from wood harvesting to production to recycling. (Saw mills, log kickers, particle board, harvesting equipment, drying of lumber, press guides for plywood, kiln cart bushings, chain guides, paper mills, pulpers, liquor tanks, agitators…).

CIP Composites can be sold as tubes or sheets and machined onsite when maintenance is required, resulting in less down time. CIP can also custom manufacture parts with short lead times.

Waste & Recycling

The waste and recycling industry is continuously faced with regulation changes and challenges. Examples include the adoption of waste to energy practices, incorporating new regulations for proper handling of hazardous and non-hazardous solid waste, and sorting of waste for recycling. Organizations are looking to reduce maintenance downtime and cost, engage in environmentally friendly practices, and find new solutions for dealing with garbage.

The equipment in this industry is faced with its own harsh challenges that include working in dirty environments, exposure to chemicals, operating in a range of temperatures, and often times are in hard to reach locations making down time for maintenance and repairs costly.

CIP Composites offer solutions to this industry with bearing and wear materials for hydraulic cylinders, handling systems, conveyors, sorting and shredding systems, heavy equipment and garbage transportation equipment. Commonly used to replace more traditional bronze and nylon materials, CIP materials are self-lubricating and do not promote galling which can cause extensive damage to the shaft, requiring re-machining or shaft replacement. The solid lubricants that are added to the resin system are evenly dispersed throughout the material, allowing for very low wear rates and long service life with fewer maintenance cycles.
