Electrostatic Lubrication System
PROBLEM: Moving material is frequently an environmentally unsustainable process. From energy consumption and lubricant usage to waste disposal and other water issues, these processes are often far from “green.” In traditional “wet” lubrication systems, the lubricating agent – a solution of water and a water-soluble lubricant – is sprayed on conveyor chains and chain guides. These conventional systems consume large amounts of water and energy and may contribute to unsanitary plant conditions.
SOLUTION: Compass Systems supplies electrostatic lubrication systems. Dry lubrication systems - like electrostatic lubrication systems – replace conventional “wet” lubrications systems resulting in a safer and more sanitary workplace. Conveyor lubrication systems dispense a dry film solution made without water-soluble components. These lubricants adhere well to conveyor surfaces and exhibit superior anti-wear characteristics. While still reducing friction and minimizing wear, no water is needed for this process and the need to handle and reprocess wastewater is eliminated.
Electrostatic lubrication systems enable our customers to program the system’s lubrication parameters and monitor system operation. This system delivers small, precise volumes of lubricant to lubrication plates located under the conveyor chain. The conveyor’s chain slides over the lubrication plates, coating the chain with dry film lubricant.
This process improves sustainability and drastically reduces water usage. Lubricant use and cleaning expenses are also decreased.
