Lambda Applications

Tsubaki Lambda Chain is the industry's first chain with special oil-impregnated bushings.

Dusty Environments

The customer uses chain on their raw steel material conveyor. However, when they lubricated in the dusty environment the lubricant would turn sludgy and the chain would suffer poor articulation. So, they used standard chain without lubrication, but the chain suffered from a short service life.

They improved the wear life of their chain by switching to lube-free Lambda Chain.

Food Dryer

Bars are attached to extended pins so that the chain can be used as a net conveyor in a food dryer. The customer used standard chain with no additional lubrication to avoid contaminating the food, but the chain would wear prematurely. They switched to Lambda Chain for a much longer wear life.

Please be aware that NSF-H1 non-compliant rust prevention oil and oils for building are also attached in the process of manufacturing.

Spaghetti

Spaghetti is hung from a bar and dried on a conveyor. The customer uses Lambda Chain to avoid any lubrication contaminating the product.

What is NSF-H1?
NFS is the only organization in the world that verifies the hygienic quality of food lubrication. NSF-H1 is the standard regulated by NSF. This is "Lubricant ingredients are safe in the event of incidental food contact." oil.

Chocolate

Lambda Chain is used in the chocolate cooling process. Oil from the chocolate can mix with chain lubricant and stick to it, so additional lubrication needs to be avoided. That's why the customer uses Lambda Chain on their chocolate manufacturing lines.

Construction Material Dryer

Outer walls are loaded onto a bar conveyor and passed through a furnace to dry. The customer previously used standard chain but the high temperatures led to premature wear.

KF Series Lambda Chain greatly extended the life of their chain.

Automotive Parts

The customer uses Double Pitch Lambda Chain with outboard rollers on their automotive parts accumulating conveyor because it reduces the time they need for maintenance.
