|The German distributor for Fenner Power Transmission was contacted by a large pet food manufacturer, as they were experiencing problems with the roller chains on their pet food conveyors.|
The chains were failing after just six months of use, and were also contaminated with debris attracted by excess oil which had been applied to the products. Following a site visit and after a lengthy technical discussion it was recommended that Fenner PLUS lubrication-free roller chain would be the best solution. Not only would this negate the need for costly and time consuming maintenance procedures, it would save the customer the expense of recycling the oil based lubricant after use.
100 metres were subsequently trialled, and a year later are still performing! The end user is delighted not only with the enhanced performance, but also with the lube-free benefits using this product resulting in an environmentally friendly factory. All conveyor lines have been and will continue to be fitted with Fenner PLUS lubrication-free roller chain.
