Extending chain drive life


Chain drives of mobile equipment (bottom of the basin and cherry picker), which were used as a platform to provide vessel hull service work, suffered from severe corrosion from copper slugs and salt water. Also, sand that accumulated during a sandblasting activity, stuck to the chain, making the chain prematurely wear, stiff and noisy. Chain drives are usually changed twice a year.

Mobile Equipment


The Chesterton 601 Chain Drive Pin and Bushing Lubricant was applied to the chains. Its high capillary action penetrates the pin and bushing, and its high detergency prevents varnish formation. This product also offers:

  • Extreme pressure additives increase load carrying ability
  • No dirt and dust build up in chains
  • No sticky lubricant residues
  • Corrosion inhibiting properties

Chesterton 601 Chain Drive Pin and Bushing Lubricant

The Chesterton715 Spraflex® Gold was applied to the outside of each bushing. It protects against corrosion and provides lubricant to the chain surface. This product is also:

  • Self-adhering, flexible lubricant
  • Water resistant
  • Resistant to acid fumes
  • Guards against rust and corrosion

Chesterton 715 Spraflex® Gold


The Chesterton 601 and Chesterton 715 Spraflex® Gold extended chain drive life and reduced energy usage. Long-lasting, non-extruding wear shield protects equipment operating under heavy loads in harsh conditions.
