Why Automatic Lubrication ?
Automatic lubrication is part of today's industry for the following reasons.
MANUAL LUBRICATION MEANS LOST
Manual lubrication of machinery and equipment in professional enterprises prevents the oil from fulfilling its duty. Since the lubrication process is not done with the necessary pressure and technology, a large amount of the oil given in the first movement of the equipment is thrown out and therefore the oil is spent before it can fulfill its duty.
THE EFFECTS OF MANUAL LUBRICATION ON COSTS
The cost effects of manual lubrication in machine systems are hardly taken into account. With manual lubrication;
* Premature wear of equipment as a result of improper lubrication. / Repair Maintenance Costs
* Stopping the machine for lubrication. / Loss of Labor
* The lubrication method cannot be applied at the same quality each time. / Poor Quality Lubrication
*Stress on the working surfaces due to the lubrication not being done properly and energy loss due to these strains. / Loss of Energy
*Excessive oil consumption as a result of improper lubrication / Excess Oil Consumption
*Environmental pollution caused by improper lubrication. / Pollution
These listed elements can be ignored by businesses. These factors, which are effective in the production costs of the enterprises, form the basis of the operating expenses. Although these reasons for the occurrence of machine malfunctions are considered as the cause of the malfunction, they can be ignored due to the cost of automatic lubrication with the elimination of the malfunction. According to case reports and researches, 40% of machine general maintenance costs consist of lubrication and lubrication-related activities. In addition, 15% of the maintenance costs are due to the maintenance labor caused by insufficient lubrication. Again, according to the determinations, it was determined that 50% of the bearing damage was caused by insufficient lubrication. In addition, the importance of lubrication in terms of the life of machine equipment is also demonstrated by the research values mentioned above. Periodic lubrication is required for machine equipment to work long-term and efficiently.
The best solution for reducing maintenance costs of your machinery, increase component life and save time.
Regular lubrication does not only maintain a grease film on the friction surface but also prevents the contamination of the friction surfaces all around and eliminate premature wear. Even the best manual lubrication program doesn’t offer the benefits of an automatic central lubrication. Automatic Centralized Lubrication Systems perform a very important role through a very wide variety of applications.
