In general, automated lubrication systems offer superior features to manual lubrication. The benefits of automated lubrication include less downtime due to bearing failure, reduced man-hours required for the lubrication task, and increased worker safety, as well as reduced lubricant and cleanup costs. All of these positively affect productivity.
There are many variables to consider regarding equipment lubrication. Automation of the lubrication process can start out small and simple, and can be adapted over time to specific needs. Feel free to give us a call and we would be happy to go over your options.
Maintenance of an automated lubrication system varies with each system. However, there are simple rules that apply to all systems such as compatible and clean lubricant, routine checks of fittings and piping and visual review of reservoirs.
