Automatic lubrication systems for the mobile onroad market
Consistent lubrication is vital to chassis and body components
In addition to maintaining the proper lubricant film to reduce wear, frequent lubrication acts as a means to purge the chassis and body components 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 vehicle 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.
Automatic lubrication systems can help
Automatic lubrication systems supply the correct amount of grease at the best time – while the bearing is in motion. Automatic lubrication reduces downtime, so your equipment is available when you need it.
SKF and Lincoln automatic lubrication systems help prevent bearing damage and unscheduled machine downtime, while optimizing manpower resources.
