Chain lubrication requires a special lubricant

Lubrication of industrial chains requires a lubricant that complies a number of specific requirements that are not always easy to combine. chain lubricants - Bardahl
First, the lubricant should penetrate between roles, bus and pen. Maximum lubrication between them is of great importance: the lifespan depends strongly of the lubrication. But the grease should not be glide off: you otherwise keep lubricating and too much grease will drip on the machine or on the floor which creates waste and dirty conditions. Then, moisture and dirt/ dust should be repelled to reduce wear and maximize the lifespan of the chains and to prevent corrosion. Therefore, the lubricant should not be too sticky as otherwise dirt / dust will get attracted to they contaminate the chain. With as a result: the maximum lifespan will not be to achieved.

Not every chain is the same, and not every application or circumstance is the same. Below is a list of chain lubricants which can be used in an industrial environment.

Bardahl Special Purpose No Melt Grease (high temperature grease)

Bardahl Special Purpose No Melt Grease is designed for lubrication of machine parts for use between -20°C and 250°C and occasionally, to 340°C. It has also proved to be superior grease for centralized systems due to its low pressure bleed and good water wash out qualities. Conventional greases soften in extreme heat, such as that caused by high-speed equipment, high temperature environments, or prolonged service at above average temperatures. These conditions need a special high-heat resistant grease.
The problem
Chains, conveyors, and sleeve bearings in ovens are subjected to constant operating temperatures in excess of 200°C. At such sustained high temperatures ordinary soap based greases run off metal surfaces, allowing increased wear and friction. Separation of oil and thickener under pressure will give increased wear to lubricated parts and can cause expensive machinery repairs.

The action
Bardahl Special Purpose No Melt Grease uses a non-soap clay thickener which forms an extremely stable grease that has no measurable dropping point. At temperatures where other greases run off metal surfaces, this product withstands high temperature environments of high speed equipment or prolonged service at above average temperatures.

This grease has a typical working temperature-range of -20°C to over 250°C. It is immune to temperature changes at all ranges, highly adhesive to metal, water resistant and protects against wear and friction.
As a general rule grease with different thickening agents should not be mixed. Bardahl Special Purpose No Melt Grease should not be mixed with non-Bentone greases. Such mixing will lead to an immediate separation of oil and thickener. When first applying Special Purpose in centralized systems, make sure the equipment has been flushed of previous grease.

Bardahl TF Dry (dry lubricant with teflon)

Bardahl TF Dry is a concentrated synthetic lubricant scientifically compounded for dry lubrication and extreme pressure, based on Teflon basis. It reduces friction and prevents sticking. It is an unique all-purpose lubricant for numerous applications. After application it dries instantly leaving a dry, non-oily, clean, PTFE-powder surface, the slipperiest substance known to science. This product will function under a wide variety of conditions, ranging from cryogenic temperatures to 260°C or higher.

The problem
Assembly of equipment with close tolerances requires lubricant, which will not be scraped off during break in. Normal oils and greases, even ones containing graphite of molybdenum-disulfide, do not adequately meet this specialized requirement.
Chains and conveyors need a lubricant with high penetrating and corrosion resistant properties, as well as one which contains a minimum level of oil or slow evaporating solvent in order to prevent “fling off” and attraction of grime to lubricated parts.
Certain industrial applications require not only good lubrication but also the ability of the lubricant to remove existing grime to maintain or improve performance.

The working
Bardahl TF Dry will form an effective lubricating surface on any material – wood, metal, leather, plastic, elastomers, fibers, glass, etc. A thin coating can easily be applied by the aerosol package. The lubricating protecting film is very thin, very adhesive, non-oily and will penetrate in the smallest places. It has an extremely low friction coefficient and will therefore reduce “stick-slip” problems to a minimum.
Characteristics
• Is a non-oily clean dry lubricant.
• Dries very fast and leaves no oil film or wax.
• It will not collect dirt or dust.
• Resists corrosion by acids or alkali’s.
• Will not be affected by water, oil or solvents.
• Prevents materials sticking in molds, bins, tanks, etc.
• Will not melt or freeze.

Applications
• Sliding mechanisms, nuts, bolts, cables, tools, conveyors – anywhere a dry powder lubricant is required up to 260°C.
• For lubricating pump-shafts and valve stems just prior to installing packing, and in the installation of flange gaskets for easier disassembly.
• As breaking-in lubricant for packings (prevents sticking). A light coating on the wearing surfaces of the packing and shaft will provide extra protection during critical start-up period of newly installed packing.
• For conveyers, slides, mechanisms requiring a non-staining lubricant.
• For drawer sliding surfaces and windows.
