Conveyors exist in a variety of types, sizes and configurations from overhead trolley systems to floor mounted (above or undergound drive chain systems). All of these conveyors depend upon the efficient lubrication of their chains, drives, rollers, bearings and guides in order to ensure their efficient operation and long life. The choice of lubricant depends upon many different factors including speed, load, desired lubrication intervals and the environment in which the conveyor is working.
In order to ensure the best lubricant is used in a particular application, we must consider all of these elements for each specific installation.
We should also consider other factors including:
