Automatic Lubrication Systems

“Not too much, not too little. Our automatic lubrication systems ensure there is always the optimum amount of grease”

Automatic Lubrication Systems

An automatic lubrication system automatically provides your equipment with the right amount of lubricant at the right time and in the right place — while the machine is in operation. It replaces a conventional lubrication system such as a grease gun. An automatic lubrication system reduces both maintenance and costs and eliminates downtime.

Advantages of Automatic Lubrication

50% of bearing failures are the result of improper lubrication.

Automatic Lubrication Systems are proven to reduce the failure of bearings and other moving parts. This reduces the huge cost of replacing the parts as well as the labour and most of all the cost of having a machine off for a long period of time.

Automatic Lubrication delivers the right amount of lubricant at the right time and in the right place.

Grease is not only the lubricant, it is also the barrier to contamination. Open lube points that lack fresh grease allow dirt to easily enter the system. Once dirt and grit enter the lube point, they will create wear that will significantly reduce the lifetime of the bearing or bushing.

Increases workers’ safety

Many companies still use manual grease guns to lubricate their heavy equipment. Manual lubrication is not only inefficient, it also compromises operator safety and environmental risk.

  1. Unsafe situations Unsafe situations (climbing, crawling etc) due to hard-to-reach grease points
  2. Slipping Slipping or falling due to lubricant spilled on floors or ladders
  3. Wounds Injection wounds due to high pressure of grease guns (up to 15,000psi)
  4. Irritation Irritation, Itching or skin rashes from prolonged exposure to lubrications
  5. Moving Parts Getting yourself or your tools caught between rotating or moving parts

Consistently dispenses accurate doses of lubricant

Not too much not too little, The Lincoln Automatic Lubrication System ensures there is always the optimum amount of grease, too much and bearing seals can be damaged and grease wasted. Too little or too long between greasing causes wear and it won’t be long before the part fails.

Lubrication when it’s needed most

Regular Lubrication while machine is running, which saves on down time but is also very good for your machine as when it is moving is when it needs to be lubricated the most.

  • This causes the permanent purging of contamination from the pin and bushing while the system is working.
  • By greasing during equipment operation, the entire pin is coated, and equal purging of the pin’s circumference is obtained.

Reliable Supply, our automatic lubrication systems will never pass or forget a lubrication point. Manual Lubrication by operators can overlook a lubrication point. Alarm features can also be incorporated as required to identify potential faults.

Going point to point manually greasing points can be extremely time consuming and expensive taking hours or more each time. An automatic system is fully automatic freeing up staff for other important tasks
