perma application engineers and specialists have developed a 4-step process for determining the most appropriate

combinations of perma lubrication systems and mounting solutions for common equipment categories. The 4-step

process can be used for conducting site surveys and preparing formal lubrication recommendations.

This catalog guides the reader through the 4-step assessment and specification process:

Steps 1 & 2 relate to equipment requirements and decision making for lubrication system installation practices.

Steps 3 & 4 relate to selection of lubrication system type and suitable perma installation and mounting methods.

Assessment of the application or equipment type:

• Determine the application type, equipment OEM, frame or model

size, and bearing part designations

• Determine the influence of operating parameters (speed, load,

vibration, temperature)

• Determine the influence of environmental factors (water, moisture,

abrasive particles, slurry, air movement, ambient temperature)

• Assess relubrication rates referencing OEM specifications or the

perma SELECT calculation

Assess the application location, equipment physical size, access to

lubrication points, proximity to hazardous areas or materials,

restrictions due to guarding, exposure to high vibration or temperature:

• Conduct the remote installation decision making process to find

out if your lubrication point requires direct or remote installation

• Assess requirement for lubrication system protection and select

standard or heavy duty bracket design

Select preferred perma automatic lubrication system and lubricant:

• Select a perma automatic lubrication system based on the

application/equipment assessment (technical data and operating

characteristics, remote grease hose length restrictions,

environmental conditions)

• Select grease suitability by application or by site preferences

Select and specify installation kits, mounting types and

accessories based on the application /equipment assessment:

• Select installation kit to suit perma lubrication system

• Select installation kit design and mounting method based on

number of lubrication points and requirement for standard

or heavy duty

• Select additional accessories required (angles, reducers,

extensions)
