Mighty Lube continues to showcase its exceptional expertise by revolutionizing conveyor lubrication in a Protein Plant. Our cutting-edge technology, designed to lubricate based on precise time intervals and provide invaluable data, has led to substantial cost savings for our esteemed client. Through the implementation of our groundbreaking system, they have successfully saved hundreds of thousands in their capital budget.
Mighty Lube Conveyor Chain Monitoring System For Protein
The permanent system measures chain wear in both Link by Link and 10’ sections. This system monitors drive amps, chain speed, take-up pressure and drive hours. It also provides data on lube cycles, reservoir levels, head voltage and pump cycles when combined with Mighty Lube or OPCO lubrication systems.
The Next Generation Permanent Conveyor Monitoring System is connected to the network and provides chain wear data and projections for up to 100 conveyor lines.
Company’s Cost Vs. Mighty Lube Avoidance Chart
This protein facility was used to replacing Picking Line X348 Chains and Log Chains every 6-months. This resulted in a yearly cost of more than $150k per year. After installing the Mighty Lube Conveyor Chain Monitoring System they have yet to replace a chain in 4 and a half years. If the protein facility did not have the Mighty Lube Conveyor Chain Monitoring System, this would have resulted in a cost of over $600k in 4 and a half years.
The client was used to an air-operated lubrication spray system. Mighty Lube is a controlled shot that uses FDA approved ingredients within the oil to prevent corrosion and/or rust. Mighty Lube’s non-drip characteristics and anti-wear additives aid in removing old oil, dirt, animal hair, and fats.
Mighty Lube Update: Benefits and Improvements
Since implementing the Mighty Lube system, the Protein Plant has seen numerous benefits and improvements in their operations.
- Tripled the life of the chain.
- Continuously reducing black grease caused by rail wear.
- Reduced the lubricant usage by 75%.
- Reduced Amps off of moderate lubrication and rail wear lubrications.
- Chain life now outlasts the trolley wheel life. Resulting in, chain manufacturers needing to develop a rigid trolley wheel.
- The take up pressure is now being monitored to control the tension on the
- Managers can now look at the data/software to control the accountability
within the group.
