High and low temperatures, conditions where moisture appears are crucial elements when it comes to choosing the right chain lubricant. Foodmax chain lubricants contain a wide range of products for every solution:

Foodmax Chain

Food grade oil for the lubrication of drive and conveyor chains and gearboxes.

Description

Fully synthetic food grade, adhesive fluids for the lubrication of drive chains, conveyor chains, gearboxes and reduction units. Foodmax Chain contains special additives that extend relubrication intervals significantly. It can be used in situations where incidental contact with food can occur. These fluids are inhibited against oxidation and therefore give a elongated wet film that stays stable within a wide range of temperatures.

Applications

For drive and conveyor chains it can be applied by brush or manually. It can also be applied automatically using a central drip feed system.

Foodmax Chain HT-X

High temperature food grade chain oil.

Description

Foodmax Chain HT-X is based on highly polar biodegradable ester base oil and is inhibited against oxidation to give a long wet film life at high temperatures. The highly polar molecules strongly adhere to the surface and withstand high temperatures, at the same time separating the moving parts due to its highly viscous lubricating film maintained at these high temperatures.

Applications

Designed for the lubrication of conveyor chains and bearings running continuously at high temperatures, up to 280°C, and short periods up to 300 °C, on textile stenters, drying machines, bakery ovens and on paint stove chains. Foodmax Chain HT-X possesses outstanding anti wear capacity and will reduce wear on chains significantly like no other.

Benefits

  • Long fluid life at high temperatures, which provides maximum lubricant economy
  • Does not form hard carbon deposits
  • Good load and anti-wear properties
  • Miscible with most ester based fluids
  • Highly polarised molecules providing excellent lubricity
  • Excellent thermal stability
  • Peak temperature of 300 °C

 

Foodmax Chain LT

Food grade oil for the lubrication of drive and conveyor chains in low temperature applications.

Description

Foodmax Chain LT is based on a blend of synthetic hydrocarbons and is inhibited against oxidation to give a long wet film life over wide temperatures. Foodmax Chain LT is designed for the lubrication of conveyor chains and bearings running continuously at low temperatures, down to minimum of – 40°C and on chains that are moving slowly.

Applications

For drive and conveyor chains: apply sparingly by brush or oil can as required. Can also be applied automatically using a central drip feed system.

Foodmax DWF Spray

Food grade dewatering and penetrating fluid

Foodmax DWF Spray is a food grade multi-purpose penetrating lubricant containing with excellent water displacing properties.

Applications

Foodmax DWF spray is a non-toxic lubricating, penetrating and de-watering lubricant and is ideal for use on lightly loaded chains, bearings & slides in food and clean environments.

Foodmax Mammut Oil

Sugar dissolving chain lubricant for the food industry

Description

Foodmax Mammut Oil is a food safe lubricant specially developed to dissolve sugar from chains, slides and moulds. It has been specially developed for the confectionary market and is available in two viscosities. Foodmax Mammut Oil is NSF and InS H-1 approved.

Applications

Foodmax Mammut Oil is developed for use on chains, sliding surfaces and moulds where build-up of sugar is seen and will eventually cause problems. The fluid will first clean the chain and remove the sugar build-up and then lubricate and will prevent from corrosion and new sugar accumulation. This makes the fluid extremely suitable for use in sugar, pastry and candy processing plants. Foodmax Mammut Oil can also be used on the chains of flow-wrapping and general packing equipment by allowing them to run smoothly and result in a more efficient operation. Can also be used on hatches, springs and hinges and for the lubrication of conveyor belts and generally for every application where sugar contamination is a problem. In bakeries and pastry production the fluid will perform excellent in dough cutters and dividers.

Foodmax Multi Spray

Adhesive chain lubricant fortified with PTFE

Description

Foodmax Multi Spray is a very adhesive white food grade lubricant in a spray package. The product contains a food grade synthetic fluid with fortified with PTFE. Foodmax Multispray is not recommended for use at low temperatures.

Applications

Lubrication of chains, conveyors, slides, joints, mould slides, small bearings or any other application which requires a food grade high performance lubricant. Also suitable for textile, paper and graphic arts, plastic, tobacco and elevator industry. Provides excellent performance in motorcycle chain lubrication and in high speed kart transmission chains.

Benefits

  • Efficient lubrication of the major points (bolts, bushings etc)
  • External protection against rust and oxidation
  • Internal protection against wear and friction
  • Extremely water resistant
  • Very high temperatures properties
  • Keeps chains free of dust and dirt
  • Avoids seizing and wear
  • Economical solution
  • Improves chain life
  • Provides clean operation
  • Food grade, InS H-1 & NSF approved
  • Temperature range of -35 – 150°C

Chains have been used for ages and can literally been found in any type of industry. Many different types of chains used and these differ in size and dimension. Although the lubrication of chains is often done with general purpose products, selecting the right and dedicated chain lubricant is for a properly functioning chain as well as its lifetime. VesCoLub therefore offers a very extensive range since all applications, temperatures and running conditions require a specific approach. We are using the latest base oils and additive technology to formulate chain oils which are outperforming many competitive products in the below mentioned fields. –  Temperature resistance –  Anti wear properties –  Clean operation –  Energy savings –  Water resistance –  Chemical resistance By using VesCoLub Chain Fluids the equipment operator can achieve: –  Lower overall lubricant consumption –  Extended service intervals –  Increased production and equipment operating reliability –  Decreased maintenance costs –  Longer chain lift PDF information:pdfIcon_PNG
