Automatic lubrication systems for farm machinery
Pins and bushings fail without proper lubricationIn addition to maintaining the proper lubricant film to reduce wear, frequent lubrication acts as a means to purge bushing and bearings of contaminants. If rock dust, dirt, sand and water are allowed to work their way into these components, they will form a “grinding compound” that reduces bearing life substantially.
To properly lubricate manually, it normally takes about 30 minutes per machine and maintenance cycle. Failure to properly lubricate each lubrication point on every machine can have a negative impact on schedules, maintenance costs and running time performance.
Drive farm machinery productivity with SKF and Lincoln lubrication systems
Automatic lubrication reduces downtime, so your equipment is available when you need it. In addition to helping increase reliability and availability, lubrication systems help to extend service life, reduce operational and lubricant costs and minimize environmental impact by avoiding over-lubrication. Also, reducing manual lubrication results in fewer potential accidents, and mechanics can be utilized for other tasks.
SKF and Lincoln progressive or single-line automatic lubrication systems help prevent bearing damage and unscheduled machine downtime, while optimizing manpower resources.
