Tsubaki's Lambda chains were the first in the industry to use a special oil-impregnated bush. Since their launch in 1988, they have been adopted for diverse industries and applications, and their performance has been highly rated. Tsubaki has a wide lineup of lube-free, long life products that help customers reduce costs.
As a pioneer in the lube-free chain market, Tsubaki will reveal some of the key elements behind Lambda's outstanding performance:
A special oil-impregnated sintered bush in combination with a special coated pin for long-term internal lubrication is the secret of Tsubaki BS Lambda's long economic life and wear resistance. The 6th generation of Tsubaki Lambda Lube Free Chain is supplied as standard with NSF-H1 food grade lubricant impregnated bush. This makes Tsubaki Lambda Chain series perfectly suitable for applications in the food industry. Bushes impregnated with H3 lubricating oil are available on request.
Temperature and Lubrication
Tsubaki BS Lambda has outstanding performance in temperatures up to 150°C. For temperatures above 150°C Tsubaki has a special high-temperature BS Lambda available. Please contact Tsubaki for more detailed information.
When an application needs water wash downs or is exposed to moisture, and lubrication is not possible or desirable, Lambda Neptune™ is most efficient.
Tsubaki has enhanced the Lambda with the following advantages:
Save Maintenance Costs
No expensive labour costs as it is not required to manually lubricate this chain.
Save Purchasing Costs
Lower frequency of purchasing due to the high quality of the chain and it's long economic life.
No purchasing of lubricants or lubrication systems necessary.
No unforeseen downtime due to chain breakdown.
Less time required for maintenance and therefore more time for production.
Applications run clean thus reducing the risk of contaminating products, machines, floor etc.
Lambda attachment chains are fully interchangeable with Standard roller chains.
