In order to stay competitive, mining and heavy industry companies must increase productivity while minimising long-term operating costs.
One crucial factor in this context is preventive maintenance, which extends equipment service life and minimises necessary downtimes required for maintenance, repairs and overhauls. This reduces operating costs and enhances company performance.
Restricted access due to hazardous conditions
Insufficient grease exchange intervals may result in lubrication deterioration or more extreme "starvation conditions
Liquid and slurry contamination require frequent or continuous grease purging
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 lube-points with little vibration / shocks
- For easy-to-access and safe lubrication points
- For lubrication with strong vibration / shocks (isolation of lubrication system)
- When workers’ safety is at risk: Mounting in safe areas
- For hard-to-access lubrication points
Advantages of automatic lubrication
Remote installations of lubrication systems reduce the time that workers have to spend in dangerous areas
Continuous relubrication at short intervals reduces wear and seals lubrication points even during longer system downtimes
Increase economic efficiency
Scheduled exchanges of lubrication systems while machines are running reduce staff and material costs and increase economic efficiency
Lower environmental impact
Precise lubricant discharge lowers lubricant consumption and thus the environmental impact
