The SKF ChainLube airless oil projection system, CLK, is a reliable, food-safe, easy to use solution for accurate automatic roller chain lubrication.
The system includes a central unit that delivers a precisely metered volume of lubricant to the points of friction of each chain link whilst the chain is in operation. A control unit is preset to the preferred timing for lubricant application. Airless projection nozzles have no mechanical contact with the chains thus minimizing applicator wear and dirt accumulation. The main components, tubing/nozzles etc, are resistant to corrosion and suitable for a wide range of temperatures. All of these features make this solution suitable for the particular requirements of the Food and Beverage industry as well as applications sensitive to over lubrication where minimal quantity of lubricant is desired.
Automated Lubrication Features:
The CLK lubrication system has an integrated control unit. This user friendly control unit allows the user to set a lubrication program according to his needs. The automatic lubrication process can be intermittent , semi automatic or continuous.
There are two parameters to be set: the duration of the lubrication cycle in time and the number of chain roller to be lubricated during the lubrication phase. The length of the pause phase depends on the total number of lubrication points and the duration of the lubrication cycle.
The control unit also allows the user to monitor the level of lubricant in the reservoir and the proper functioning of the proximity switch.

At the heart of the CLK's simple design exists a plug and play solution tailored around ease of installation. The CLK is a cost effective upgrade for many different roller chain applications not just those found in the food and beverage industry.
