Upgrading from Diesel Oil to Chesterton Lubrication Solution


SKL Maintenance Systems Corporation case study APAC0018 – Chesterton products – Chesterton Industrial Lubricants




​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A premium-quality oil formulated to penetrate between the close clearance of chain drive bushings and pins, wire ropes, and cables to provide critical lubrication. This formulation contains extreme pressure additives to increase chain load carrying ability in tough environments. Wire ropes and chain blocks often suffer from extreme build-up of dirt and dust that can have detrimental effects on work rate and ability.
