Shuttleworth, a leader in automated product handling solutions, has developed a Lubrication Strip Kit to keep Shuttleworth equipment in optimum working condition for peak performance.
Regular chain lubrication maintenance is a critical element in achieving maximum life expectancy from Shuttleworth conveyor systems. Lubrication strip replacement frequency varies from 6-12 months – dependent upon the application speed and environment, as well as periodic maintenance performed. Proper lubrication provides a protective barrier for chains and other components to resist corrosion while reducing noise when conveyor systems are in operation. Inadequate orirregular lubrication cycles lead to breaks in the chain or links, resulting in a need for frequent – and costly – chain replacement, early rebuilds or machine replacement. Each kit includes complete mount and guard assembly with attached lubrication strip, bushings, T-bars, mounting hardware and wrench.
