Run Dry 60 Series

Conveyors are the unsung heroes of today’s manufacturing industry, expanding their competency in numerous applications. Lubrication is used to be considered as one of the most important factors in the functioning of the conveyor.

Although the ratio of expenses for lubricant procurement in a general maintenance budget is only about 3-4 %, failures related to lubrication can reach up to 60 %, depending on the industry and prevailing maintenance methods. It is crucial to comprehend not just the cost of the lubricant, but also the entire cost of lubrication.

With the right approach, you could promote plant safety, stay a step ahead of oncoming environmental regulations and cut costs all at the same time.
