The Vital Role of a Lube Champion in Industrial Facilities

In the hectic world of industrial facilities, the smooth operation of conveyor systems is the backbone of efficiency and productivity. Amidst the business, one critical element often flies under the radar: conveyor lubricant. Without proper lubrication, the conveyor chain can suffer from increased wear and tear, leading to costly breakdowns and downtime. Enter the unsung hero of maintenance: the Lube Champion.

One of the primary roles of the Lube Champion is safety. Educated about the system, they can provide valuable information on how to work around and on the equipment safely.

The expertise of a Lube Champion extends beyond applying lubricant; it encompasses a deep understanding of conveyor chain lubrication systems and materials. This includes:

  • Knowing the difference between environmental and external factors that can impact the lubrication of conveyor chains.
  • Understanding when to use High Viscosity vs. Low Viscosity, which is crucial for performance consistency across a range of operating conditions.

With this knowledge, they handpick the most efficient grease lubricant or lube oil for the conveyor system. Their choice ensures consistent performance across varying conditions.
