Automatic lubrication systems for farm machinery
Pins and bushings fail without proper lubrication
In 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.
