720 CCG Improves Production Efficiency and Lowers Costs
Case study – Chesterton ILMRO products – Industrial Lubricants
In a food manufacturing facility, frequent sanitising washes and use of a water0based process lubricant corroded carbon steel drive chains. The facility wanted to find a solution to reduce maintenance costs, while increasing uptime and chain longevity. Chesterton recommended the new Chesterton 720 Chain, Cable, and Gear Lubricant, which enabled smooth chain operation and easy re-lubrication.

In a food manufacturing facility, frequent sanitising washes and use of a water0based process lubricant corroded carbon steel drive chains. This issue resulted in disjointed chain movement that impacted production efficiency. It also required frequent upkeep and maintenance that depleted much of the maintenance budget.
The facility wanted to find a solution to reduce maintenance costs, while increasing uptime and chain longevity.
After analysing the problem, the Chesterton representative recommended 720 CCG Chain, Cable, and Gear Lubricant.
720 CCG creates a non-dripping film on the surface to resist water wash-down and thus improves oil use and provides protection against water and wear.
720 CCG was applied using an air pump.
Using 720 CCG on the drive chains, performance far exceeded that of thickened oils, solvent cut greases, and other ‘chain gels.’ Oil stayed on the chain after sanitisation cycles, further reducing costs.
720 CCG performed equally or better than Chesterton 715 SpraFlex Gold Lubricant for water resistance and corrosion control. The flowable consistency of 720 CCG enabled smooth chain operation and easy re-lubrication.
