Automatic lubrication systems for water and waste water treatment

Consistent lubrication is vital to rotating and moving components

The non-stop operation of a wastewater treatment plant exposes the individual components to great strain. The dirty, humid or wet environment makes this application even more difficult and tremendously challenges the texture of the components.

Therefore, special attention should be paid to maintenance and service concepts. A centralized lubrication system decisively contributes to making a waste water treatment plant work more reliably, economically, safely and efficiently.

Automatic lubrication systems can help

Automatic lubrication systems supply the correct amount of grease at the best time to lubricate – while the bearing is in motion. Frequent lubrication maintains the proper lubricant film to reduce wear, as well as purges the pins and bushings of contaminants.

Benefits from automatic lubrication

  • Improve production with more up-time 
  • Reduce replacement part costs when equipment is properly lubricated 
  • Improve resale value when lube system is on board 
  • Reduce potential for worker injury 
  • Minimize lubricant costs  
  • Reduce environmental concerns through controlled lubrication
