Lubricating chain oils for the food-processing industries

Lubricating chain oils for the food-processing industries

Chains are often used in the food industry to drive conveyor systems in challenging conditions such as in high-temperatures (bakery ovens or beverage can manufacturing), low-temperatures (freezing tunnels in the meat industry, ice cream production and other frozen foods) or when transporting high-load products and exposed to high-humidity environment including washing process.

A chain performs a very complex movement, resulting in a permanent state of mixed friction. The tribo-system needs a special lubricant to meet all the technical requirements.

We offer an extensive list of products for chain lubrication, customised to suit your specific requirements for initial lubrication or relubrication.

We offer an extensive list of products for chain lubrication, customised to suit your specific requirements for initial lubrication or relubrication. That is why our lubricants are the first choice for many chain OEMs and operators.

Thermal stability at high temperatures

When operating at high temperatures, chain oils must offer good thermal stability for preserving the components and increasing the lifetime of the chain, even under extreme conditions (e.g. load and speed).

The products Klüberfood NH1 CH 2-220 Plus and Klüberfood NH1 CH 2-260 Plus demonstrate excellent thermal stability and wear protection. One of the methods in measuring thermal stability is through carbonisation tests.

Carbonisation test

Oil is kept heated constantly at 240 ˚C and applied on a metal polished surface (30ml per hour in small drops). The objective is to evaluate the condition of the metal surface after 48 hours. A cleaner surface means the oil created less residues, therefore cleaning is less frequently required.
