Cartoning/Palletising – Move the product
• Continuous or pulse spray provides
precise automatic oil application during
production
• Replaces manual application of
graphite/oil mixture during scheduled
shutdown period.
• Clean – no graphite build up on chain to
clean
• Environmentally acceptable with
synthetic/ food grade oil. No V.O.C.
• Eliminates fire hazards
• Return on investment – Improves chain
life 2-3 times.
• Industry improvement – Synthetic, high
temperature, and food grade lubricants
are becoming the industry standard.

Typical cost of production time. One 8 hour shift to clean
graphite lubricated chain plus 1 hour cool down & 1 hour
start up.
Graphite oil must be applied on a weekly schedule.
Actual cleaning of chain requires kerosene and hammer to
loosen baked on graphite.
Chain replacement, typically £15,000 or more. Normal
chain life is one year. Bakers are requesting 3 year chain
warranty.
Chain replacement labour cost. One 8 hour shift, 3 or 4
maintenance technicians.
Dangerous. The combination of Kerosene based
lubricating solution with high heat can cause fires.
Environmental Issues. Unacceptable V.O.C.’s (Volatile
Organic Compounds.

Increased production time. Shutdown to lubricate not
required. Automated method eliminates cool down and
cleaning.
Mako-Lube oils applied during production are NSF Registered
Chain life cycle increased 50% or more.
Chain replacement cost reduced 50% or more.
Dangerous fire hazard eliminated.
Improved environment.

Chain replacement downtime cost. One 8 hour shift annually.
Dangerous. Manual lubrication while oven is in production.
Environmental Issues. Unacceptable V.O.C.’s (Volatile Organic
Compounds) if petroleum base oils used.

Synthetic:
This chain has been lubricated
with HT Chain Oil Plus for over
three years.
Graphite:
This chain has severe carbon build up
from lubricating with graphite. Over
30% of the rollers were locked from
graphite. After applying synthetic
lubricant, amperage significantly
decreased and all rollers were
rotating. (Picture taken 6 hours after
converting from graphite to synthetic.

Previous Lubricant
• Usage: 15 Litres lubricant per week
• (2 Litres per day per oven)
• Purchases: One Drum every 16
weeks (4 months) per oven
• Lubricant Savings: 66%
• Usage: 100 Litres lubricant per
week per oven
• (15 Litres per day per oven)
• Purchased one drum every 3
weeks per oven
COST SAVINGS
£20,000 PER OVEN, PER YEAR
ON OIL ALONE

Past practice utilised graphite with oil or a solvent base applied
during shutdown. A short run period after application flashed off
the base solvents or oils. Production operation then relied on the
remaining graphite to provide lubrication during production
periods.
Mako-Lube only supply synthetic oils that perform better than
typical petroleum base brands. Synthetics may be applied during
production without any adverse effects. Typical temperature
flash point is 300°C. Our synthetic oils are acceptable for use in
food grade environments & NSF Registered as H1.
