Ovenworx® H1 Syn Chain Lubricant (LE4061)

Typical Applications: Automatic lubrication systems for baking ovens, kiln chain drives, skate chains in bread and bun baking ovens, stenter & tenter chains, and other high-temperature oven chains


Ovenworx® H1 Syn Chain Lubricant was formulated specifically to combat the demanding conditions present with oven chain applications by offering superior heat resistance. In addition, it is approved for incidental food contact and contains no artificial dyes, making it a good choice for food manufacturing plants needing superior heat resistance. Oven chain efficiency is dependent upon a lubricant that can keep the chain operating freely and smoothly, fighting the ever present heat and moisture that can cause corrosion and eventually lead to premature failure of oven chain pins and bushings. Only the most robust lubricant formulations can perform in this application; it is not an area to cut corners. If the oven chain fails, output comes to a screeching halt.


Ovenworx™ Chain Spray/Brush System
Automatic Lubrication System Delivers Right Amount
of Lubricant at Right Time to Critical Equipment


The Ovenworx™ Chain Spray/Brush System is an automatic lubrication system (ALS) designed to dispense lubricants in small, measured amounts over short, frequent time intervals. It eliminates human resource constraints and makes consistent lubrication easier in physical locations or on types of machines where it was previously impossible.
This innovative system comes in a spray or brush configuration.
Using an ALS for lubricant application leads to improved quality of lubrication as well as a reduction in labor requirements. Its successful use, however, requires knowledge of lubrication fundamentals. In order to avoid mistakes and realize positive results from such devices, you must select the right system for a given application, install the system correctly, and determine the optimum application rate. LE’s highly trained and skilled representatives can help you get started.
