Majority of the modern industries use conveyor belts for transporting raw materials and finished products. Conveyor belts include chains which require proper lubrication. An effective lubrication system ensures longer chain life, increased rate of production and lesser cost of energy.
There are basically two options to lubricate these chains which include the solid film lubrication and the liquid film lubrication. Most people prefer to use solid lubrication as it has the ability to withstand high temperature and consumes fewer lubricants. It also offers protection against wear and tear. It is quite difficult to apply solid lubricants as the method requires manual application. Manual application of the lubricants, with spray bottle and brush, is possible but it is associated with various pitfalls.
