Pumps are the core of many industrial applications.
A failing pump can often interrupt the entire work or production process. All sorts of pumps are used in many fields and applications. Appropriate lubrication, safeguarding the work and production process of the pump, is a decisive factor of smooth operation.
Pumps are normally operated under extreme conditions. These can include heavy contamination from slurry or dust and hazardous materials such as alkali solutions and weak acids.
Many lubrication points can only be accessed with extreme protective measures (safety gloves and mask). This frequently leads to neglect of the prescribed lubrication.
Lubrication starvation results in wear and leads to failure of equipment components or pump leakages.
Dirt, water or other contaminants must not enter the bearing points
Lubrication while the machine is in operation must be ensured
Workplace safety must be ensured
Operation in potentially explosive areas
Lubrication points (roller bearings) are located on the drive shaft between drive motor and pump body or in the pump housing.
Lubrication of gland seal and labyrinth seal prevents the ingress of dirt and / or pumped media into the bearing. Seals of bearings and bearing housings must be permanently supplied with the specified amount of the right lubricant.
Mount a perma lubrication system at the lubrication point. Depending on the conditions prevailing at the lubrication point, the perma lubrication system can either be mounted directly or remotely.
- Easy, quick mounting
- For lubrication points with little vibration / shocks
- For easy-to-reach, safe lubrication points
- For lubrication points with strong vibration / shocks (isolation of lubrication system)
- For lubrication points which are unsafe to access: Mounting in safe areas
- For hard-to-reach lubrication points
Advantages of automatic lubrication
Increased workplace safety due to automatic lubrication of hard-to-reach lubrication points
Lower environmental impact
A precise lubricant discharge reduces lubricant consumption and lessens environmental impacts
Fewer maintenance runs
Fewer maintenance runs minimise the time spent in dangerous areas
If a certified lubrication system is selected, it may be used underground or in potentially explosive areas
