JAX Lubricant Solutions for Chains in Extreme Environments
JAX Proofer Chain Oil
JAX Proofer Chain Oil is the lubricant of choice for bakeries utilizing industrial proofing equipment or any application environment where moisture poses corrosive threats. JAX Proofer Chain Oil exhibits excellent penetration properties, ensuring that moisture does not reach the metal surface of the chain. It is formulated with an emulsifier, which functions to remove environmental moisture from the chain for superior corrosion protection.
Even when compared with lubricants that use traditional anti-corrosive additives, like calcium sulfonates, JAX Proofer Chain Oil boasts a superior ability to protect the steel surface from harmful corrosion. JAX Proofer Chain Oil also contains a polymer to prevent the lubricant from dripping onto the food product. JAX Proofer Chain Oil is an NSF registered H1 lubricant, which permits incidental food contact.
JAX Forming Chain Oil
Fiberglass insulation-forming conveyors are subjected to a unique set of circumstances requiring a specialty-formulated lubricant. JAX Forming Chain Oil utilizes synergistic chemistries to guarantee superior performance in this application. The unique additive chemistry is compatible with fiberglass process fluids and maximizes chain protection from the abrasive and corrosive nature of the insulation forming process.
JAX Forming Chain Oil combines superb anti-wear and load-carrying abilities with unsurpassed rust and corrosion resistance, making it ideal for use in the fiberglass insulation forming process or any chain environment experiencing elevated levels of wear, rust, and corrosion.
JAX Pyro-Kote FG XTL
For extremely high-temperature conveyor applications, many OEMs will specify the use of a “dry” lubricant in lieu of a traditional liquid lubricant. In these environments, even high-temperature synthetic liquid lubricants can actually subject a chain to more damage than protection. Not only could it pose a significant fire hazard, but the liquid lubricant would begin to deteriorate and leave heavy, carbon deposits on the chain, eventually building up enough to seize the machine.
Dry lubricants can be utilized in temperatures above 400°C (750°F) without these concerns, as an evaporative carrier will leave behind a solid lubricant that continues to protect the conveyor chain effectively. JAX Pyro-Kote FG XTL is a dry lubricant that utilizes a synthetic base fluid carrier which migrates into critical friction points and subsequently evaporates to leave behind a friction-reducing, protective layer of Boron nitride. Once the carrier fluid of JAX Pyro-Kote FG XTL cleanly evaporates, the Boron nitride solids remain on the metal surface to provide long-term protection. JAX Pyro-Kote FG XTL is also an NSF registered H1 lubricant, which permits incidental food contact.
The significance of proper chain lubrication cannot be overstated in industrial operations across various sectors. As highlighted through the discussion of JAX’s specialized products, such as the Proofer Chain Oil, Forming Chain Oil, and Pyro-Kote FG XTL, tailored lubrication solutions are paramount to ensuring optimal performance, longevity, and safety in diverse applications.
By employing lubricants specifically designed to address the unique challenges of each industrial process, companies can mitigate the risks of chain integrity issues, downtime, and excessive operational costs. The commitment by JAX to formulate high-quality lubricants underscores the critical role they play in enhancing efficiency and reliability in manufacturing and production environments. Thus, investing in the right chain lubrication solutions is not only a prudent business decision but also a fundamental aspect of maintaining operational excellence and competitiveness in today’s industrial landscape.
