A central lubrication system streamlines maintenance, reduces downtime and extends your machinery’s lifespan. Centralized automatic lubrication systems are an effective way to increase machine reliability and stimulate efficient machinery operation, leading to a higher productivity rate. Discover Ancotech’s central lubrication solutions and find out how they can enhance your machinery.
What does a central lubrication system do?
Central lubrication is an automated lubrication system that supplies lubricants to machine parts and reduces friction, wear and overheating. It enhances the longevity of your equipment, optimizes operating performance, minimizes maintenance efforts and prevents premature failure and defects. Operating either continuously or intermittently, the central lubrication system contributes to efficient machinery operation, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
This type of lubrication system is vital across industries with complex machinery. Examples of industries are manufacturing, mining, construction and transportation. Central lubrication systems are commonly used in assembly lines, conveyor systems, food processing and mining equipment. The multiple moving parts of these systems require frequent lubrication in order to function properly.
The advantages of central lubrication
Businesses can benefit from the use of a central lubrication system, ranging from minimizing downtime to operational safety for their employees. We have listed the most important advantages of central lubrication below:
- Significant savings in repair and overhaul
- Increased machine reliability
- Up to 50% savings on lubricant costs through accurate lubricant timing and dosing
- Fewer downtimes and production losses
- Reduced environmental impact
- More safety for employees
How does central lubrication work?
How exactly does central lubrication work? It is not necessary to stop the machine before greasing. An Automatic Lubrication System (ALS) continuously lubricates the machine while it is in operation. Each cycle a small amount of grease continues to flow. Aside from that, waste is kept out even when the machine is used in harsh conditions. With smart sensors and monitoring equipment in a lubrication system it makes it possible to take advantage of big data. By mapping the entire grease process, operators can prevent machine set up failures and take preventative action.
Lubrication is a crucial aspect in the reliability of your machines. But for many operators it is becoming too much of a challenge. With an easier way to lubricate your machines, you can maintain reliability without the expense and hassle of lubricating by hand. Although the cost of installing an automatic lubrication system is higher, the investment will pay for itself faster than one might think. First, labor costs are reduced, but you also save time by reducing downtime and extending component life.
