Lubrication of Chains and Power & Free O/head Conveyors

Despite new types of material and advanced technology, many chains still require lubrication.  Optimum lubrication reduces friction and subsequent wear on chains. 

The largest relative movement of all chains occurs between the link plate and the chain stud, and it is here where considerable forces are present.  Insufficient lubrication of this area will result in premature wear and chain failure.  The consequence is likely to be expensive production downtime.  Precise and efficient lubrication is a prerequisite for trouble-free operation and a long-life of the chain.

Our automated chain lubrication systems provide an exact metered quantity of lubricant and apply it reliably to the chain where it is required.

Friction Points on a Chain

  • Friction between bushes & roller
  • Friction between the inner & outer plates
  • Friction between the plate / bushing
  • Sprocket, roller & inner plate
  • Friction points at the drive & chain attachments

Advantages of Automated Chain Lubrication

  • Increase life expectancy of the chain
  • Minimize downtime resulting from insufficient lubrication
  • Reduce energy consumption
  • Reduce lubricant consumption
  • Absorb shocks and beats
  • Cooling of fast-running chains
  • Silencing of noise

All renowned chain manufacturers recommend the periodice re-lubrication of a chain.  The most important design criteria to consider is:-

  • good penetration characteristics
  • high pressure resistance
  • reliable corrosion protection
