Lube-free chain solves wear problems

Lube-free chain solves wear problems Engineers at Sherwin-Williams' paint roller manufacturing plant in Deshler, USA, were experiencing problems with excessive chain wear caused by fibres from the paint rollers bonding to the lubricated chain and quickly destroying it. Despite using low levels of lubricant and taking other preventive steps, the chain was elongating within weeks and binding as it passed through the clamp mechanisms that make the rollers. The solution proved to be Renold Syno lubrication-free chain. Installed in December 2004, it has since required no maintenance and has eliminated the problem of binding as it passes through the clamps. All it needs to keep it clean is a shot of compressed air once a week.
