LE Unveils New Synthetic H1 Oven Chain Lubricant

Ovenworx™ H1 Syn Fights Heat & Moisture To Ensure Efficient Oven Chain Operation
WICHITA, Kan. – Lubrication Engineers, Inc. has added a new synthetic NSF H1 offering to its line of oven chain lubricants. The company specifically formulated Ovenworx™ H1 Syn Chain Lubricant (4061) to combat the demanding conditions present with oven chain applications, including those at food manufacturing plants. Ovenworx H1 Syn is low-staining, odor-neutral and contains no artificial dyes. In addition to meeting the National Sanitary Foundation criteria for incidental food contact, this lubricant is Kosher Pareve certified.
Ovenworx H1 Syn Chain Lubricant (4061) is a high-performance fully synthetic formula featuring robust high-viscosity base fluid. It penetrates all moving parts of the oven chain, enabling them to move freely. Smooth, quiet, efficient operation is the result, as well as decreased energy use because of the reduction of frictional drag on electric motors.
Ovenworx H1 Syn keeps production going by defending against ever present heat and moisture. It features oxidation stability and reduced volatility at high temperatures, and lubricates chains up to 300°C (572°F). It also seals out damaging moisture, preventing corrosion that can eventually lead to premature failure of oven chain pins and bushings.
Contains No Solids
Equipment runs more cleanly and efficiently with Ovenworx H1 Syn, which lubricates without the need of solid additives. Lubricants with solids have to be stirred to keep the solids distributed within the carrier and prevent them from falling out of suspension. Solid additives also can create problems by building up over time, creating gum and gunk around the application area, especially when over-applied.
Ovenworx H1 Syn requires no pre-mixing, can be applied to hot oven chains without interrupting operation, and leaves no residue. It is ideal for use in high-temperature industrial process and food processing ovens. Typical applications include automatic lubrication systems for baking ovens, kiln chain drives, and skate, stenter and tenter chains.
