SKF Dry Lubrication System for Conveyors

Dry Lubrication System
SKF Dry Lubrication System
Flat top conveyor chains used in bottling plants require constant lubrication to prevent high friction between packages and chains in accumulation areas. The typical solution is to apply high volumes of a water and soluble lubricant mixture, which can cause operator accidents due to slippery floors, or package quality issues resulting from organic development and moisture formation. The humid atmosphere can cause corrosion, which leads to replacement costs and reduced line efficiency.

The SKF Dry Lubrication System eliminates the need to spray thousands of litres of water and soluble lubricant. Instead, this flexible and completely automated systems applies a small amount of SKF Dry Film Lubricant (NSF H1 certified) on the conveyor chains and guides.  As a result, the floors are dry, the lubricant consumption is minimal, and there is no more waste water, no moisture on packages and no corrosion.

The SKF Dry Lubrication System delivers automatically and precisely the right lube quantity at the right friction point, chain surface or guides, from a central unit that can feed up to 200 lube points in accordance with the production process.

  • Cost savings by eliminating high volume of water and soluble lubricant.
  • Improved operator safety by reducing slip hazards
  • Reduced risk of product contamination by avoiding microbiological growth
  • Enhanced line efficiency
