Synthetic H2 Lubricant Penetrates Hot Oven Chains, Remains Thermally Stable & Reduces Energy Use

Monolec® High Temperature Oven Chain Lubricant (9965-9966) is a specially formulated lubricant recommended for use on high-temperature oven chains, providing wear protection and lowering power consumption. It is a USDA H2 lubricant made of a synergistic blend of synthetic base fluids and high-performance additives, including Monolec, LE’s exclusive wear-reducing additive. The synthetic base fluids provide excellent thermal stability and low volatility characteristics at high temperatures, while the additives help the lubricant prevent friction, wear and corrosion.

Beneficial Qualities

N/A High-Temperature Performance
  • Offers broad temperature range; can be used up to 300°C (572°F)
  • As temperature increases, lubricant forms a soft carbonaceous residue with solid lubricant properties and minimal buildup.
  • Reduces coefficient of friction at elevated temperatures
  • Provides superior oxidation stability
  • Reduces volatility
  • High flash point minimizes safety concerns when applying to hot chains
Water Resistance
  • Seals out damaging moisture
  • Prevents corrosion
Wear Protection
  • Effectively lubricates all moving parts of the chain
  • Minimizes wear
Reduced Power Consumption
  • Minimizes electrical energy needed for conveyor chain operation

Proprietary Additive

N/A LE’s proprietary additives are used exclusively in LE lubricants. Monolec® High Temperature Oven Chain Lubricant contains Monolec.

Monolec® wear-reducing additive creates a single molecular lubricating film on metal surfaces, vastly increasing oil film strength without affecting clearances. An invaluable component in LE’s engineoils, industrial oils and many of its other lubricants, Monolec allows opposing surfaces to slide by one another, greatly reducing friction, heat and wear.
