What Are the Different Automatic Lubrication & Tools

By May 27, 2021Blog

These unplanned and unnecessary costs can be reduced with an Automatic Lubrication System (ALS). An automatic lubrication device (ALS), often known as an auto greaser or a centralized grease or oil lubrication system, automatically lubricates several points on a machine from a centralized pump/control unit is installed in a convenient place. When the machine is running, a device dispenses small measured quantities of lubricant at regular intervals, ensuring a constant supply of oil in the bearings and a stable lubricant seal to avoid dirt and pollutants from migrating through bearings.

When it comes to keeping the machines running smoothly, nothing beats a well-designed lubrication device. Simatec Distributors GCC ensures the metal lathes, surface grinders, machining centres, saws, drills, milling machines, and presses are only a few machines that need lubrication. Many of these problems can be solved with a single-line resistance lubricating device.

Single Line of Resistance Lubrication system

The single-line resistance systems are the easiest to use and maintain. They’re small, cost-effective, and suitable for equipment with closely spaced bearing clusters or classes. While the machine is running, the oil discharge is precisely controlled and delivered to each stage. This lubrication device maintains a clean film of oil between sensitive bearing surfaces to minimize friction and wear.

Positive Displacement Injectors

The pressure caused by a centralized system lubricator drives injector lubrication systems. These systems are ideal for machinery that requires a precise amount of lubricant at different locations. Injectors are alternately triggered and deactivated at regular intervals. Oil and fluid greased discharges from the injectors as the lubrication device exceeds operative pressure.

Series Progressive Lubrication Systems 

On medium-duty machinery and equipment, series progressive lubrication systems are most commonly used. The ease of installation is one of the benefits of this lubrication device supplied by Simatec agent in SAUDI. Pumps are attached to lubrication manifolds, some modular, allowing for installation, alteration, and repair without the need for tubing removal.

Progressive movement divider blocks run in a pre-arranged sequence in a Series Progressive lubrication scheme. This allows for fast device activity monitoring through a moving indicator pin. A cyclic discharge from a lubricator causes sequential movement of the pistons within the divider block. Each point connected to the lubrication device network receives fixed volumetric quantities of lubricant.

Dual Line Lubrication Systems

Any industry that needs continuous duty operation uses Dualine Lubrication Systems. They are cost-effective for systems with more than 20 bearing points, and additional points can be easily inserted without having to rebuild the entire system. When a blockage occurs between the feed line and the bearing, the mechanism will not shut down; the remaining bearings will be lubricated. Every bearing point has a positive lubrication indicator. Simatec Agent KSA can displace a wide variety of lubricants, from light oil to grade-2 grease, with ease. Also, after start-up, the lubrication discharge volume at each bearing is entirely adjustable.

Single point Lubrication Systems 

Single Point Lubrication Systems are very efficient at delivering grease or oil to your lubrication points, despite their fundamental nature. By experimenting with various springs, users can predict how long it will take to run the unit empty. The lubricant level can be checked visually at any time, thanks to clear reservoirs. Since the Venturioperation only discharges lubricant while the bearing is in motion, there is no over lubrication. Since this lubrication device can use any grease, it can be used in other applications on the plant floor.

Improper lubrication accounts for 53% of all bearing failures, resulting in substantial equipment downtime and high maintenance costs, such as new bearings, labor to fix or upgrade paths, unscheduled downtime, and the effect of meeting customer delivery commitments. These failures are primarily caused by dust, dirt, and moisture contamination of bushings and an insufficient amount of grease added to bearings.
