Features and Benefits

  • High resistance to oxidisation enhances lubricant lifetime at high operating temperatures
  • Significantly reduced carbonisation
  • Exceptionally low oil volatility ensures oil film stability and fluidity is maintained in-use, contributing to lowered consumption rates
  • Unique combination of anti-wear additives reduces friction and wear
  • Excellent thermal stability significantly reduces carbonisation and the formation of deposits/varnish/lacquer
  • Optimised base oil and anti-wear combinations reduces friction and wear to maintain effective lubrication and Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
  • Superior cleanliness contributes to:
    – Reduced frequency of downtime
     – Enhanced component lifetime

     – Lowered costs associated with equipment/component part replacements

How Metachain™ Maximises Production Efficiency

Metachain™ is engineered to maximise production efficiency ensuring your operations run smooth, fast and more reliably than ever before.

Each Metachain™ product has a high resistance to oxidation and carbonisation. This means you’ll experience less frequent replacements and more consistent performance. Plus, thanks to exceptionally low volatility, you can reduce lubricant consumption tenfold. Metachain™ offers a more sustainable and cost-effective solution where it matters most.

Metachain™ contains a unique blend of anti-wear additives. This minimises friction and wear protecting your machinery’s vital components whilst improving their longevity.

Furthermore, excellent thermal stability allows for extended lubrication intervals. You can wave goodbye to the days of frequent and tedious maintenance.

With Metachain™, you’re not just investing in a chain lubricant; you’re investing in the sustained peak performance and efficiency of your production processes.

Case Study

Metachain™ Saves £60,000/Year on Dieffenbacher Press By Reducing Downtime

A UK manufacturer of sustainable timber construction panels had historically used specialised belt, roller, chain and rod lubrication for their Dieffenbacher CPS+ continuous presses but had encountered issues including high carbon deposits left by lubricants, and excessive wear on bending rods.

Case Study

Metachain™ CB-100 Cuts Oil Consumption by 50% on Siempelkamp Press

A UK manufacturer of sustainable timber construction panels was experiencing issues with the bottom steel band of their 46m Siempelkamp Press running dry and depositing large amounts of carbon and waste oil.  In order to ensure consistency and adequate lubrication, the chain oils were being deliberately over applied. As a result, the press produced excess waste oil that needed to be drained at a rate of 100 litres per week.
