Chains offer various advantages:
- High level of efficiency
- The ability to work in hostile environments.
Without a Smart Lubrication™, these advantages can be lost.
- Without Smart Lubrication™ that controls the coefficient of friction, you may find reduced efficiency due to a loss in transmission power.
- Without Smart Lubrication™ that controls the tension between consecutive joints: you may have unexpected high loads with the chance of irreparable damage.
- Without Smart Lubrication™ that PROTECTS the pins and bushings from the mating surface and the temperature: you may find the chain to ELONGATE, endangering the correct functioning of your equipment.
- Without Smart Lubrication™ that PROTECTS the chains from harsh environments and chemicals: RUST may form, compromising the solidity of the materials and the disassembly.
- Without Smart Lubrication™, surface PITTING on the sides of the links as well as other failure modes, are more prone to appear and make your chain to malfunction.
- Without Smart Lubrication™ that CONTROLS the coefficient of friction, you will rapidly wear out the joints: resulting in too much FRICTION and power consumption, causing harmful temperature rise.
Molykote® Greases, AFC, and Oils provide corrosion protection, cushion to impact forces, and a consistent coefficient of friction.
OIL + THICKENER + ADDITIVES = GREASE
RESIN + SOLVENT + SOLID LUBRICANTS + ADDITIVES = AFC
OIL + ADDITIVES = OIL
These additives provide enhanced lubricating properties to increase life expectancy of your chain, avoiding downtimes and maintenance costs.
With a Smart Lubrication™ you can CONTROL the coefficient of friction and PROTECT the chain pins and bushings from the external elements.
With Molykote® Greases, AFC, and Oils you can PROTECT components and CONTROL your maintenance.
