720 CCG Improves Filling Line Operation and Reduces Product Loss

Challenge

A food manufacturer was dealing with corrosion on a filling line transmission chain. The lubricant Gear Lubricant. 720 CCG is a semifluid they were using, a USP White Oil, that was easily washing off with water and acidic food residue. It was not protecting the chain from water and corrosion. The daily sanitation cleaning of the filling line completely removed lubricant. The customer had to lubricate the chain every day. The lack of proper lubrication resulted in erratic operation of the conveyor, which caused product spillage.

The Chesterton representative recommended 720 CCG Chain, Cable, and polymer-modified synthetic chain oil with excellent water and corrosion resistance capabilities. The drive chains were cleaned with 723 FG Sprasolvo™ Oil to remove old residual oil. 720 CCG-diluted version was then applied using a trigger sprayer.

Initially, the customer applied 720 CCG every day as usual. But after a week, the customer realized that the 720 CCG remained on the chain even after cleaning the filling line with sanitizing detergents, so they moved to a bi-weekly application. With the use of 720 CCG, the corrosion spots on the chain were significantly reduced. The erratic chain operation caused by corrosion was eliminated, and product spillage was reduced significantly.
