High Temperature Chain Lubrication

In industries where high-temperature environments and heavy mechanical loads are commonplace, proper chain lubrication becomes crucial. Chains are essential components in many applications, including manufacturing, automotive, and food processing. To ensure optimal performance and extend the life of chains operating in extreme conditions, understanding the impact of evaporation rates, choosing high-performance oils, avoiding over-lubrication, and minimising power consumption are key considerations.

Case Study

Recently New Tech Lubes paid a visit to a company manufacturing pies, we went along to audit their current lubrication stocks with a view to rationalise them, ensure all lubricants met the correct standards for use in a food production facility and to offer alternatives from our extensive range of H1 and 3H registered lubricants.

Maintenance & Cleaning

Most people assume that lubricants must be made of a wet oily material and come in a fluid (Oil) or paste form (Grease) which is of course generally true, and whilst wet lubricants are generally better sometimes due to the environment in which they have to perform in can be more of a hindrance than a help.

6 Quick fire questions

The first port of call for most is the machine operating manual which in most cases is OK but what happens if your gear box, slide or rolling element is not working in the ideal environment envisioned by the machine manufacturer, or the recommended lubricant is no longer available where can you get advice from.
