Significant Savings for One of The World’s Largest Siempelkamp Continuous Wood Panel Presses

Siempelkamp chain oils

Our groundbreaking chain oil Metachain CB100™ is giving annual savings of £125,000 in volume reduction alone to one of the largest Siempelkamp presses in the world, based in South America.

The customer experienced issues with the previous lubricant boiling-off and leaving the steel band dry and carbonized. To overcome this, the dosage was significantly increased to keep the belt lubricated. The result of this over-lubrication was the collection of approximately 1000ltrs of waste oil per month, which needed to be disposed of. Metalube inspected the press and recommended Metachain CB-100 as an alternative to this application.

Commenting on the results, Metalube’s Commercial Manager, Matthew Buffin says: “The results have been remarkable. The volume has returned to recommended manufacturers levels without any issues of drying or carbonization. Analysis of the belt shows a much better film of oil which is clean and lubricious. This is great news for Metalube as it shows Metachain CB-100 withstands more load and temperature and can significantly outlast even the best alternative chain oils. The client is of course delighted.”
