New high temperature chain oil reduces energy consumption
30 October 2018
A chain lubricant with a cleaning effect, that also reduces wear, not possible I hear you say, but Klüber Lubrication has launched a new high-temperature chain oil that offers thermal stability and low residue formation.
Klüber Lubrication has launched Klübersynth CHM 2-100, a new high-temperature chain oil for drive, lift and conveyor chains. The oil offers thermal stability and low residue formation as well as the capacity to dissolve existing residues, therefore overcoming the problem of conventional chain oils which evaporate under high temperatures and form lacquer-type residues. These residues impede the supply of fresh oil to the friction points and increase friction. This in turn leads to higher energy consumption and increased chain wear. With Klübersynth CHM 2-100, maintenance intervals can be extended, downtime reduced and a manufacturing plant can increase energy efficiency.
Klübersynth CHM 2-100 can be used for all drive, lift and conveyor chains at high temperatures up to approx. 250°C and can be applied, for example, in coating installations (radiators, white goods), in the insulating materials industry (glass and rock wool), in conveyors (automotive industry) and driers (gypsum boards). Klübersynth CHM 2-100 is NSF H2-registered and thus suitable for use in areas in the food-processing industry where direct contact with the food products can be excluded.
