correct and regular dosing
Centralized lubrication systems allow the correct, regular, dosed application of grease at perfectly calibrated intervals defined by a maintenance program.
If lubrication is insufficient, the system will be subject to premature wear, potential breakages and downtime, subsequently shortening the life of the system. If lubrication is excessive, the device will overheat, thus generating attrition, not to mention wastage of the primary material.
Lubrication systems on the other hand are able to avoid problems associated with dosing.
Lubrication systems: perfect timing, even in hard-to-reach points
Maintenance staff follows a program, but this doesn’t protect against two types of problems. The first is tied to hard-to-reach points in a machine, forcing maintenance staff to work in less than optimal conditions, thus requiring more time without being able to guarantee efficient results.
The second problem relates to the frequency of maintenance operations. The mobile parts of a machine require the right dose of lubricant to operate efficiently. To guarantee these conditions, maintenance staff must distribute only a sufficient and necessary amount of lubricant, however in doing so they would be required to intervene more often. To avoid this, maintenance staff distribute a greater quantity of grease in the belief that this will increase the amount of time until their next intervention.
Lubrication systems solve these two problems at the root: they distribute grease in hard-to-reach points, dosing only the correct quantity, at the right frequency
