Dual composition of the CLA lubricantS system from iwis
iwis has come out with a new CLA lubrication system, which permanently delivers lubricant to the chain drive and other components – and in this way ensures a long chain service life economically, cleanly and with absolute precision.
To ensure low wear and extend the service life of a chain drive a regular maintenance and lubrication are indispensable. With proper re-lubrication more than two thirds of all chain failures can be avoided .Which was reason enough for Munich-based chain manufacturer iwis to extend its chain-related portfolio to include a new, service-oriented product: Thanks to the use of a special applicator, new CLA(Chain Lubrication Application) system from iwis ( permanently delivers lubricant to the chain drive and other components – and in this way it clarify a long chain service life economically, cleanly and with absolute precision.
When developing the new lubrication system for chain drives, iwis Engineering, the in-house R&D department, concentrated on maintenance – The objective was to extend the service life of the chain by ensuring that the chain is lubricated properly. And the output is a highly efficient minimum quantity lubrication system.
The special applicator, which is made from a high-performance material, acts as a reservoir via which small quantities of lubricant are continuously delivered to the employed chain drive at the precise locations where it is actually needed. This prevents the operating roller chain from not being supplied with enough lubricant and also prevents unnecessarily large volumes of oil from being dispensed onto the chain and its environment. An environmentally friendly, “green” solution that also lowers costs and reduces the risk of contamination of plant equipment.
The CLA pumps can be operated separately with time control or can be simply integrated in the machine’s PLC. The compact size simplifies the task of retrofitting the device in existing plant and machinery. Thanks to a pump pressure of up to 70 bar, the mdistributors are able to supply as many as 16 lubrication points with sufficient oil without contaminating the environment and wasting valuable lubricant. The special applicators, which are made from
PU foam, are extremely strong and are available in many variants, including custom designs.
