SKF Oil Projection Systems for chain conveyors
Medium conveyors in airports and assembly linesThey face continuous operation to eliminate production slowdowns and maintain baggage flow. Chain wear caused by friction between chain elements and/or corrosion requires regular servicing and repair work – or even replacement of the entire chain. Such maintenance work interrupts the production process. Regular, accurate lubrication helps minimize chain wear and thus the need for servicing and repair.
SKF can help
SKF has developed a range of oil lubrication systems for chain conveyors. The systems can be controlled and monitored using control units or software. SKF assistance begins with planning and continues right up to the commissioning of the complete system. SKF Oil Projection Systems automatically lubricate chain pins, bushings, plates or rollers without contact between the projection nozzle and the chain. Advantages of this lubrication solution include:
- Prolonged mechanical service life of the chain and increases its availability
- Better compliance with work and safety regulations thanks to more precise lubrication
- Improved operator safety by reducing manual lubrication and chain maintenance
SKF VisioLub software for chain lubrication systems
Controlling and monitoring lubrication cycles helps prevent chain malfunction and breaks and reduce unplanned production stops. By identifying defective chain links, SKF VisioLub software facilitates active maintenance. This enables pro-active maintenance before a chain break can occur. SKF VisioLub software also contributes to reducing environmental impact by helping to eliminate the use of excess lubricants.
