Lubrication systems supplier SKF’s new- generation automated lubrication systems meet the requirements for effective lubrication of moving surfaces integral to almost all industrial and machinery applications.
SKF’s automated lubrication systems include centralised systems for mobile plants and forklifts, combined oil and grease systems for materials handling robots, as well as dry lubricant sprays for conveyors and guide-rail surfaces.
New-generation SKF centralised lubrication systems are specifically designed to supply multiple lubrication points or groups of points with varying amounts of precisely metered lubricant from one central reservoir.
This type of system ensures that every lubrication point, particularly those in hard- to-reach or dangerous areas, receives an exact and carefully programmed level of oil or grease at appropriate intervals and, if necessary, in the appropriate sequence, eliminating the risk of environmental contamination caused by overlubrication.
Further, the supplier’s automated lubrication systems function while machinery continues to operate and, while bearings, bushes, shafts or conveyors are moving, ensuring that oil and grease are distributed consistently across all moving surfaces.Maintenance
As a result, operator safety remains uncompromised, while wear and tear and associated downtime, repair and maintenance costs are significantly reduced.
As an added benefit, maintenance of an SKF centralised lubrication system is generally limited to topping up the lubricant reservoir and an occasional inspection of the lubrication points.
