Success story: ANDEROL CHAIN OIL XL 220 FG

Helps bakery increase production capacity and extend equipment life


The challenge

A large bakery plant for toast, rusk and rye breads in the Netherlands was using a mineral-oil based chain lubrication for its chains at operating temperatures above 200ºC. The lubricant caused contamination in the chains and had a low service life leading to costly production down-times. Moreover, components needed to be replaced frequently as chain particles were completely covered in deposits. In an effort to optimise performance, the company approached ANDEROL to identify a lubricant that offered a high degree of solvency and low deposit formation.

The solution
ANDEROL’s specialist team recommended ANDEROL CHAIN OIL XL 220 FG - a unique, high quality chain oil that offers outstanding performance for chain lubrication in high temperatures or dirty environments.

As well as high oxidation and thermal stability with low deposit formation, ANDEROL CHAIN OIL XL 220 FG has strong detergency properties and prevents carbon build up.

The result
After switching to ANDEROL CHAIN OIL XL 220 FG chains have remained clean with no deposit formation. The bakery plant has saved not only an estimated €20,000 in chain revision, but also a week’s downtime. Production capacity has increased significantly, and the life of equipment extended.
