Often we are asked “So what is new in Chesterton”, and more often than not we will say “Oh not much” or “Same old Same old”. The truth is there are so many products to the Chesterton range outside the packing and gasketing we are known for that compliment the sealing device range. For instance did you know we have a fantastic range of lubricants, suitable for most industrial applications, many with food approval (so they may safely be used in meat and dairy and fish processing industries) Chesterton Chain Drive Pin and Bushing Lubricant is the first product I was introduced to 30 years ago, it was new, it has a detergent/cleansing agent to clean the crud out of the pins and bushes and it comes in aerosol or bulk form.
When partnered up to Chesterton 715 Spraflex we have a 2 shot treatment 1. to get into the chain and lubricate and 2. an outer shield lubricant. Ask us for a demo. To complement the 601/715 partnership we have synthetic lubes too, with Chesterton 610 for high temperature and resistance to water washout, great for areas that are frequently washed down by overzealous cleaners! Coupled with Chesterton 715 Spraflex Gold Synthetic outer shield and we have a high-performing lubricant for plants with temperature problems on the chains. Wool dryer chains in the wool and skin industry and bakeries are classic hot/dry environments where 610 outperforms other mineral oil-based lubricants.
Chesterton offers an excellent range of greases with both mineral and synthetic bases and when coupled with the automatic Chesterton Lubricup this allows you to concentrate on running your plant profitably. Again, ask us for a demonstration.
