Each conveyor lubrication equipment is mounted at the point of application. A 15” long slot is cut out on top of the rail and the lubricators fit over the opening. They lubricate the vertical load wheels, horizontal guide rollers and pivot points and optional swivels.
The Conveyor Lubrication Equipment are connected to a nylon lubricant supply tubing, which is connected to either a 6 gallon Self Contained Lubrication System, a 12 gallon tank, or a centralized 65 gallon lubricant tank.
The Self Contained Lubrication System for 6 and 12 gallon lubricant tanks
is installed near a column or close to the lubricator for ease of filling. The 65 gallon Lubricant tank is recommended when increased amounts of conveyor lubricants are used due to longer chain links and when the chains are subject to high temperature ovens for powder coatings, including organic and inorganic coatings. Many times conveyors go through washers, ovens, and paint booths which increase conveyor lubricant consumption.
