Case Study No. 604

Application:   Chains & Rails
Industry: Steel, Aluminum, Glass & Plastic
Problem: A light oil was sprayed on manually, once every two weeks. The amount of lubricant applied was inadequate, leading to premature chain wear. In addition, the time involved to access the chain and spray an oil coating, made this operation labor intensive.
Solution: A Single-point MEMOLUB lubricator was mounted in a convenient location, and tubing run to the chain where an oil brush was outfitted. Lubrication is now constant and consistant, with excellent coverage. Every 3 months, the oil cartridge is replaced. The customer was able to use the same Castrol oil that they had been using previously.
