High Temperature Chain Lubricant

Product Description

Mobil SHC Chain 240 is an exceptional performance chain lubricant designed for lubrication of high temperature conveyor chains at temperatures up to 290°C / 555°F. It is designed to provide excellent wear protection and resistance to evaporation, thermo-oxidation and coking.


Features and Benefits

Mobil SHC Chain 240 helps to:

  • Provide a degree of equipment protection beyond the capabilities of conventional chain lubricants
  • Provide extra reassurance of trouble-free equipment protection at very high temperatures
  • Extend equipment life, reduce costs, improve total system performance
  • Prevent wear of chains, sprockets, and other system components
  • Reduce deposit formation thereby reducing chain sticking
  • Provide lasting lubrication of chains at high temperatures
  • Reduce lubricant consumption compared to conventional chain lubricants



Mobil SHC Chain 240 is designed specifically for the lubrication of oven conveyor chains at temperatures up to 290ºC (555⁰ F). It is suitable for high temperature chain applications in:
