LubX® CV Chain Guides Reduce Friction and Wear

LubX® CV—Enhanced UHMW with lower friction and longer wear life, runs quieter—uses less energy

uhmw lubx group blue rochA manufacturer of bottling machinery was challenged with keeping their equipment moving quickly and smoothly. Along with poor wear, the machinery was noisy.

Conventional UHMW was not preforming well in the application

The conveyor on the bottling machine had an acetal chain riding on UHMW chain guides. The conveyor wasn’t running as smoothly or as quietly as the manufacturer wanted and the chain guides were wearing out too quickly.

LubX® CV chain guides reduced friction and improved wear life

Curbell provided the manufacturer with LubX® CV, an enhanced friction and wear grade of UHMW. The LubX® CV chain guides made an immediate impact, with longer wear life, lower friction, and less noise compared with the conventional UHMW chain guides. In fact, LubX® CV offers a number of benefits for manufacturers, including outstanding dry-running properties, reduced slip-stick, and improved energy efficiency.
