Correct lubrication of conveyor chains is essential for optimum performance and maximum chain life.
The major considerations that assure smooth, continuous operation of chain conveyors and associated components are:
· Type and effectiveness of the selected lubricant
· Precise application of the lubricant
· A maintenance program to assure continuity of operation
Lubricants for roller chain must be selected and applied according to the application and working conditions of the chain. High temperature conveyor chains suffer wear due to the inability of conventional oils to withstand oven/furnace temperatures without evaporating rapidly, forming carbon deposits or leaking.
IKV Lubricants has been a leader in the field of high performance lubricants for many years & has met the increasing demands for tribological products that meet the requirements of the industries OEM’s.
IKV’s strategy consists of continuous research and on-going development supporting the industries design engineers by offering innovative tribological solutions.
IKV's quick reacting team, along with its capability to develop new products to meet a customer brief or application, make it a leader in its field. These products are available as greases, oils, pastes or dry coatings and are state-of-the-art solutions in the field of lubrication for long life, friction and wear reduction.
To accomplish this IKV uses a wide range of materials suitable for their tribological properties as well as for their compatibility or inertness with other materials. The result is a range of products containing approximately 500 formulations, which are capable of solving most all tribological problems encountered.
IKV realises the products must also meet application requirements and has, therefore, adapted its packaging to meet these requirements. IKV is part of a group, which has been in existence for nearly 100 years, a staff of 250 dedicated employees and a fully equipped in house laboratory with the latest equipment and a large production facility.
Although IKV Group already has a large range of proven products it prides itself on its ability to develop new products to meet the growing demands for excellence in industry.
IKV's quality management system guarantees its customers a perfect match between the properties of the products supplied and specific demands. This system has ISO 9001 vs 2000 accreditation.

Our Beslux Ramca 220 spray is synthetic oil for the lubrication of chains, rollers and pins and slideways. It offers protection in temperatures up to 230°C.
The Beslux Ramca 220 is a synthetic based, light coloured oil which offers good protection and ensures superior wetting capacity on metal surfaces as well as a good lubricating film with high metal affinity.
Beslux Ramca 220 is chemically stable, resistant to high temperatures and leaves minimum residuals after evaporation.
It will protect machinery at high temperatures and provides excellent wear protection.Molybdenum disulphide can be compared to a ‘pack of cards’, the pack when put under load can withstand high loads towards the surface, however the cards can slide over each other or ‘shear’ to allow movement easily. This can be added to chain spray to add high temperature resistance. Our Beslux Cadenas is a product based on a high temperature resistant base oil and colloidal Molybdenum Di-sulphide. The spray application ensures excellent penetration down to the pins and brushes of roller chains.
Our Beslux Moly Spray is a dry film lubricant containing Molybdenum Di-sulphide (MoS2) for temperatures up to 450°C.
It provides a lubricating film with excellent endurance. It is very adherent and ideal for applications with heavy loads and temperature changes. It ensures smooth sliding and minimises the coefficient of friction.
