About RotaLube

The original idea for the RotaLube product dates back to 2007 with patents applied for and granted shortly thereafter. RotaLube products are now sold around the world and used in diverse industries – timber, food processing and packaging among them.

We can supply the RotaLube applicators as separate items and supply or advise on the lubrication system to suit the chain lubrication requirement.

The lubrication systems can be pre-assembled prior to delivery and the equipment can be mounted on back plates or inside enclosures. Alternatively you can design and supply your own systems.

RotaLube also has its LC range, a low cost range of chain lubrication applicators and pumps. These are typically items that are ex stock and can be supplied as simple kits for installation by the end user.
