4. What is the best lubrication for silent chain?
Proper lubrication is important for a long service life, particularly at high loads and speeds. Lubricant specifications and methods can be found by clicking Lubrication. In some low speed conveying applications it may be possible to operate with powdered lubricants or no lubricant at all. In most cases, greases or heavy oils will not penetrate chain joints and are not recommended. Consult Ramsey for specific recommendations.
