Strategy 1

– Remote mount lubrication systems at safe and easy-to-reach

locations at ground level which would otherwise be difficult to reach for large

electric motors, fans, and pumps.

Safety gain

– Improve safety via the remote installation of lubrication systems

at safe-to-access locations to avoid the temptation for personnel to step

up onto, or climb onto, equipment structures.

Efficiency gain

– Save time which would otherwise be required to locate

and use safety steps.

Example

- The perma STAR VARIO lubrication systems shown are mounted

to the cage by using a cage hanger kit to lubricate the bearings of a fan shaft

mounted on an elevated frame via remote two-meter grease hoses.

Automatic lubrication systems are maintenance tools which make a positive contribution to workplace safety and efficiency.

This is particularly the case for large operations in hot and cold climates where the physical demands of performing regular

manual greasing increases the risk of fatigue, heat exhaustion, and hypothermia.

The implementation of automatic lubrication systems does not mean that the frequency of equipment inspections should be

reduced. Automated systems save time which can be invested into other tasks such as mechanical inspections, condition

monitoring data collection, breather maintenance, and oil cleanliness management activities such as filtration and

clarification.

Strategies to improve safety and efficiency

Strategy 2

– Remote mount lubrication systems used for conveyor pulley

bearings which are located behind cages to avoid unnecessary manual

handling of cages.

Safety gain

– Improve safety by avoiding the need to lift and handle

cages and guards.

Efficiency gain

– Save time which would otherwise be required during

shutdowns for permits, isolations, cage removal, and cage reinstatement.

Example

- The perma STAR VARIO lubrication systems shown provide

consistent grease delivery to the tail pulley bearings of a conveyor.

Strategy 3

– Automatically lubricate equipment which would otherwise

require working in confined spaces or areas where fall protection is required.

Safety gain

– Improve safety by reducing the need to perform work

at heights or within confined spaces.

Efficiency gain

– Save time which would otherwise be required during

shutdowns for permits, isolations, equipment preparation and other

time-consuming requirements.

Example

- The perma STAR VARIO lubrication system shown is lubricating

the bearing of a gravity take-up pulley on a conveyor via a 15 ft / 5 m

remote grease hose.
