LE’s range of solutions for oven chain lubrication includes high-performance products that can operate in high-temperature and harsh environments that contribute to smooth and efficient operations.
Solid vs. liquid lubricants
High-temperature chains can be lubricated with either liquid lubricants or solid lubricants suspended in a carrier fluid. LE has both available and our expert team can recommend the best solution for the specific needs of your application.
Key benefits of LE’s oven chain lubricants include:
- Reduced downtime
- Lower energy consumption
- Decreased friction
- LE lubricants penetrate pins and bushings to prevent corrosion
Fluid film lubrication is the regular oil film lubrication used in the majority of ambient temperature applications.
Ovenworx® H1 Syn Chain Lubricant (4061)
Ovenworx® H1 Syn Chain Lubricant (4061) was formulated specifically to combat the demanding conditions present with oven chain applications. In addition, it is approved for incidental food contact and contains no artificial dyes, making it a good choice for food manufacturing plants.

- Easy to apply with standard equipment
- Cuts costly downtime by reducing wear and minimising breakages
- Controls rust and corrosion
Solid film lubrication is preferred at high temperatures or in applications where it is impossible or undesirable to use a liquid. The solid lubricant is suspended in a liquid carrier designed to evaporate after the lubricant has been applied and, in the case of chains, after it has penetrated to the pin area of the chain. The result is a smooth, low-drag surface, which reduces friction, heat and wear, as well as electrical energy consumption.
Almasol® High Temperature Chain Lubricant (2799)
A premium high-temperature chain lubrication solution for use in hot oven chains where low evaporation carrier is needed to allow a lubricant time to penetrate.
- Synthetic carrier fluid penetrates completely into pins and bushings
