Supply and installation of automatic progressive lubrication systems in all sectors from earth moving, construction, production lines and freight / road haul, to marine. Reservoir capacity’s range from 2L to 15L and our progressive pumps feature an integrated run / pause time controller.
The seven main benefits of our systems are:
1. REDUCED EQUIPMENT DOWNTIME
Our Progressive Lubrication systems can be remotely mounted in a convenient and safe location, away from the machinery’s service port or grease nipple. This virtually eliminates the need for time-consuming lock-out procedures because service panels, shrouds, and other machinery components don’t need to be removed in order to access hard-to-reach bearings. This means the machinery doesn’t need to be shut down to replenish the lubricant supply.
2. REDUCED EQUIPMENT MAINTENANCE COST
Optimal lubrication practices extend the life of the equipment. Also, lubrication technicians no longer need to log hours of time each week keeping a fresh supply of lubricant in equipment bearings and bushes. On average, it takes less than five minutes to fill our reservoirs* . Compare that to the fifteen minutes or more it takes to manually lubricate a bearing or bush.
3. INCREASED LABOR FORCE EFFICIENCY
One of the biggest concerns we hear about automatic lubrication is this: maintenance managers are worried that it encourages complacency and makes it convenient for their maintenance staff to ignore the equipment. On the contrary, automating the lubrication process allows the technician to focus more of their attention on inspection of that equipment. Furthermore, it frees them up to focus more time on higher-value tasks, significantly increasing your labor force efficiency. Automating the lubrication process is not an invitation to ignore the equipment. Rather, it promotes lubrication uniformity and facilitates better use of personnel time.
4. INCREASED SAFETY
Our goal is to eliminate the risks associated with manually lubricating hard-to-reach areas. These hazards include slipping, tripping and falling. For lubrication points in hard-to-reach areas, distribution blocks can be mounted in a safe location, and a grease line can be run to those lube points.
5. PROLONGED EQUIPMENT LIFE
Uniform application of lubrication can significantly extend equipment life and reduce unplanned downtime and maintenance. Applying small amounts of lubricant over time reduces wear by consistently providing a film of fresh lubricant between friction surfaces. It also reduces the consumption of lubricants by only lubricating the bearings as needed and not as scheduled. In addition, automatic lubrication minimizes waste, which is good for the environment. It also keeps lubricant off of the production floor and the machinery, which can improve safety.
6. LUBRICATION CONSISTENCY
Our units provide the same amount of lubricant, at a specified interval and to the specified place on a consistent basis. There is no variation in how the lubricant is applied. With manual lubrication, two different lubrication technicians may be using two different techniques to lubricate the same point, resulting in two different outcomes. Even a single technician doesn’t lubricate the same point exactly the same way each time. His or her routine may be affected by time constraints, workload or other circumstances.
7. LUBRICATION RELIABILITY
Progressive Lubrication Systems are able to work twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week—even when you’re not. You will no longer need to wonder if or when critical bearings or bushes were lubricated. Plus, you can eliminate the finger-pointing that inevitably happens after a bearing failure that was caused by improper lubrication.
