Some of the toughest lubrication problems are found in conveyor lines. Operations involving cleaning, plating, painting and drying, where excessive vapors and heat tend to break down petroleum-base lubricants, can be particularly troublesome. Manufacturers tell us that proper lubrication increases conveyor life by as much as a factor of 4. In one case on file a conveyor wheel lubricated with a molybdenum disulfide based lubricant was still serviceable after 3500 hours of operation, whereas a conveyor wheel lubricated with a petroleum based lubricant failed after just 650 hours of service. 
Dri-Slide® Chain Lube 1000 and Dri-Slide® P-116 Chain Lube are formulated specifically for use in the automatic central lubricating systems that are widely used to lubricate conveyors. Dri-Slide® chain lubricants can also be applied by canister-type automatic lubricators, or by brush or rag. These lubricants contain a Super Fine grade of molybdenum disulfide (“moly”) to provide superior load carrying capacity while at the same time operating over a wide temperature range. Dri-Slide® chain lubricants require no agitation.
These lubricants are designed to apply a fine, uniform lubricant, thus may not appear black on the surfaces lubricated. As with all lubricants, the best indication of when to relubricate is how the equipment is running, or excessive noise, or excessive shiny spots on chain contact and wear points.
Dri-Slide® Chain Lube 1000
Recommended for use on conveyor chain and bearings where the recipient surface temperature is below 110°F (43.3°C) at the point of application.
Dri-Slide® P-116 Chain Lube
Recommended for use on conveyor chain and bearings where the recipient surface temperature is above 110°F (43.3°C at the point of application. This product may require a slightly longer drying time due to the high flash solvent used to raise the flash point.

Coupling this with the reduction in power draw that results from regular lubrication, reduction in down time, and the cost of repair and replacement of associated damage that often results from conveyor failure, a preventive maintenance program of regular lubrication reduces costs in both the short run and the long run.
