Nano-Ceramic Grease Proves Ideal for Conveyors

Thursday, September 1, 2011

DayLube high-performance grease from Dayton Progress, Cincinnati, OH, offers a lower coefficient of friction at all temperatures than traditional PTFE greases. Use it on conveyors and their bearings, and on bushings cables, cams, chains, gears, lifters, machine parts, robotics, slides, wear plates and more. The grease uses nanoceramic particles that provide continuous lubrication to steel surfaces and that provide extraordinary adhesion to extend life by as much as 10 times that of other greases.

DayLube operates at -40 to 800 F, and the nanoceramic particles remain intact to 2500 F. It survived the ASTME 4-ball weld test with no weld and minimal damage to all ball bearings.

According to Dayton Progress representatives, manufacturers using DayLube on their conveyors report significantly longer service life—up to 10 times longer than traditional PTFE lubricants.
