Lubrication Solutions for Stiff Chains and Wire Rope in Crane Machinery
SKL Maintenance Systems Corporation case study APAC0020 – Chesterton products – Chesterton Industrial Lubricants
Chesterton® 601 Chain Drive Pin and Bushing Lubricant and Chesterton® 715 Spraflex are just two of Chesterton’s many lubricant options for wire rope and chains. Capable of removing residual dirt and limiting stress from metal-to-metal contact, this unique combination of products is the perfect solution to operating and moving parts of puller and crane machinery across all areas of the workplace.
Products featured in the case study:
The client came to Chesterton with stiffed performance of chains and wire rope. It was quickly identified that dirt and old lubricant build up from the environment and from the equipment itself, were the cause of failure during operations.
Chesterton 601 CDPBL was applied and sprayed directly on chains and resulted to removal of dirt due to detergent additives.
Chesterton 715 Spraflex was used to avoid stress due to metal to metal contact.
Water beads were observed as an indicator that the product had sealed the external surface of wire rope. This further meant that no more dust or build-up could occur internally and therefore should allow operations to run as per normal.
Chains and wire rope run smoothly due to proper lubrication. This has given the benefit of great performance and cost savings.
The client reported an estimated overall saving of $14688.00USD, as well as huge savings on total loss of revenue due to past power interruption and, more importantly, an increase in safety for workers.
