Garvey Lubrication System

Reducing Friction

Here is the basic overview of how it operates: Corner lubrication is done the same way it was done using the Lincoln pumps. The pictures below and below show how lubrication is applied to the top surface of the chain. On the returns/underneath the table UHMWPE blocks are mounted and the chain rides along on them. The UHMWPE blocks do not push on the chain – it contacts the blocks via catenary sag and leads into the return tracks. The block has holes in it to allow lube to be dispersed. A drop of lube is slowly forced upward by the pump and is spread along the chain as it passes over the block.
