Centralized automatic lubrication systems are an effective way to increase machine reliability. Central lubrication provides the right amount of lubricant at the right intervals, minimizing gradual friction and wear and extending bearing life.
Automatic lubrication systems are designed to lubricate individual machines of entire plants and ensure proper, accurate lubricant replenishment at all required points, providing many benefits.
Advantages of central lubrication
- Significant savings in repair and overhaul
- Increased machine reliability
- Up to 50% savings on lubricant costs through accurate lubricant timing and dosing
- Fewer downtimes and production losses
- Reduced environmental impact
- More safety for employees
Central Lubrication Applications
- Machine tools
- On-/off-road machines
- Construction, agricultural and forestry machines
- Mining and cement industry
- Food and drink
- Railway Applications
- Steel industry
- Pulp and paper
- Wind energy
- And of course much more
Lubrication is a crucial aspect in the reliability of your machines. But for many operators it is becoming too much of a challenge. With an easier way to lubricate your machines, you can maintain reliability without the expense and hassle of lubricating by hand. Although the cost of installing an automatic lubrication system is higher, the investment will pay for itself faster than you might think. First, labor costs are reduced. But you also save time by reducing downtime and extending component life.
Therefore it is not necessary to stop the machine before greasing. All you need to do is fill and service the lubrication system. An Automatic Lubrication System (ALS) continuously lubricates the machine while it is in operation. Each cycle a small amount of grease continues to flow. Aside from that, waste is kept out even when the machine is used in harsh conditions.
With smart sensors and monitoring equipment in a lubrication system it makes it possible to take advantage of big data. By mapping the entire grease process, operators can prevent machine set up failures and take preventative action.
