Mobil SHC Chain 240

High Temperature Chain Lubricant

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:

  • Fiber glass insulation manufacture
  • Particleboard (OSB , MSB) manufacture
  • Plastics and textiles manufacture
  • Paint oven operations
