There was a time in the lumber industry when chains and tensioning sprockets powered warehouse conveyor systems to move pallets or boards from fabricating to packing and shipping. Sawdust would cling to boards and sink onto the sprockets, where the lubricating oils or grease would collect into a sticky mess of sawdust and grease. This mess got into the gears, causing premature failure or malfunctions. Parts wore out quickly, and production would grind to a halt every time a part needed to be changed.
The solution was to switch from chains and tensioning sprockets to Poly V belts, which could run without lubrication.
The Poly V runs cleanly without the use of oil or grease. The result: sawdust stays dry and doesn’t cling to the belts or conveyor system. This cuts down on wear and tear and maintenance throughout the entire plant.
