New dry lubrication technology for conveyors reduces water consumption, improves line efficiency

By using non-aqueous dry conveyor lubrication instead of traditional soap and water lubrication, packaging companies can achieve greater packaging line efficiency and eliminate substantial water consumption. Since the cost of buying, shipping, handling, and storing soap as well as process effluent disposal are eradicated, there are additional environmental and economic benefits.

Demand for alternatives

Conveyor lubrication is typically required in order to minimize the pressure between containers and enable packaging lines to run most efficiently. With soap and water lubrication, lines for some beverage products, which run three shifts, use as much as 250,000 gallons of water a year.
