Conveyor Chain, Lumber Mill



Wood sawing process creates dust, dirt, and adhesive pitch – residue that binds chain and creates abrasive wear. The chain was visibly stiff, noisy due to poor lubrication – resulting in high chain wear and increased electrical costs.

Lumber mill chains became stiff due to contamination.
