Chesterton® 601 Lubricant Saves Chain Life in Lumber Mill
Case study – Chesterton ILMRO products – Industrial Lubricants
The wood sawing process creates dust, dirt, and adhesive pitch – residue that binds chain and creates abrasive wear. This particular chain was struggling to operate at its full potential, and so Chesterton experts suggested the Chesterton® 601 Chain Drive Pin and Bushing Lubricant, designed to penetrate wire chain to clean debris and dirt from its inner workings. The product was a success, cleaning the chains, saving electricity costs, and creating a safer working environment thanks to the limited oil drips and leaks.
Products featured in the case study:
The wood sawing process creates dust, dirt, and adhesive pitch-residue that binds chain and creates abrasive wear. The chain was visibly stiff, noisy due to poor lubrication, resulting in high chain wear and increased electrical costs.
Chesterton® 601 Chain Drive, Pin and Bushing Lubricant penetrates to lubricate and clean the pin/bush inside of the chain. The high detergency of this product prevents build up of wood fibers on the outside.
Electricity savings: +4%
