MicroPoly Lubricants :: Chain Lubricating Sprocket

By: Phymet  09-12-2011
Keywords: Oil

A sprocket made from MicroPoly provides a unique method of lubricating chains. When inserted as an idler sprocket in a chain line, oil is transferred from the MicroPoly to the chain as the sprocket rotates against the chain. Since the MicroPoly has a large reservoir of oil, the sprockets provide a long lasting method of chain lubrication with reduced maintenance and improved housekeeping and safety.

MicroPoly sprockets are used as idler sprockets, and should not be used as drive sprockets. MicroPoly sprockets should be mounted on the slack side of the chain.

Available Sprockets Are:
• 3519
• 4019
• 5017
• 6015

Please contact PhyMet's technical staff (937) 743-8061 for details on custom sprockets.

MicroPoly Lubricants :: Chain Lubrication System

The oil contained in the MicroPoly is transferred as the chain moves along the blocks. The applicator is available in a variety of designs, one of which is shown here. This applicator employs grooved blocks of MicroPoly to lubricate chains. The block’s profile is designed to fit into the chain profile. Mounting bracket available upon request.


MicroPoly Lubricants :: MicroPoly® Lube Arcs

This cost savings is based on purchasing fewer wheels over the life of the crane and does not include savings from the downtime involved in replacing the wheels. This patented system consists of two MicroPoly arcs and a mounting system that makes use of existing axle bolts on each side of the crane. PhyMet's revolutionary MicroPoly lube arcs dramatically reduce wear on overhead crane wheel flanges.


MicroPoly Lubricants :: Solid Profiles

MicroPoly eliminates the need for re-oiling and spillage that can occur with conventional lubrication systems. MicroPoly solid profiles can be custom-made for specific lubrication applications. Typical Applications for MicroPoly Custom Profiles. Typical Applications for MicroPoly Solid Profiles.


MicroPoly Lubricants :: MicroPoly® Filled Bearings

As you can see in the following photos, the MicroPoly lubricant simply fills the spaces between the rolling elements and the cage. Filling bearings with MicroPoly lubricants does not alter the dimensional tolerances of the bearing in any way. Reducing the incursion of debris into the bearing can significantly extend the bearing's life. There is no need for additional lubrication during the life of a MicroPoly filled bearing.
