Castrol says its new automated conveyor lubrication system can significantly increase conveyor chain and trolley life and reduce maintenance time.

The Lubecon conveyor system uses a computerised system controller to provide accurate lubrication to as many as four different lubricators, using fluid from a central reservoir with a capacity of up to 200 litres.

The lubricant is applied in exact quantities to a precise schedule which is infinitely variable to ensure continuous effective lubrication for components such as chain links and pins, trolleys, bearings and cat drives.

The system uses a portable monitoring unit, which is capable of measuring all combinations of conveyors with three, four and six-inch chains.

Windows-based software allows chain wear profiles to be used for wear trend analysis.

Castrol supplies several lubricants and greases in the heavy duty, anti-wear Lubecon range, which are designed specifically for use in conveyor equipment. It also supplies thin and dry film lubricants. Contact: Castrol UK, Tel: 0845 9645111
