Vogel Central Lubrication and Lubrication for Industry

Welcome visitor! Would you like to login? Or would you like to create a new account ?

On this site we provide you with applications for Vogel cantral lubrication units as well as central lubrication systems. At anytime we are gladly to help, with your personal needs. The purpose of central lubrication systems is to provide bearing points in machines or vehicals with lubricant of a centralised source.
The advantages of a Vogel central lubrication system are the low maintenance intervals, prolong machine time and staff costs, which decrease.

Vogel central lubrication:

Central lubricating units for lubricating machines and machinery are divided into the following system options:

  • Multi-line systems
  • Chain lubrication systems
  • Single-line systems
  • Progressive systems

Single-line systems:

In the following fields of application, single-line lubrication is often used for: Apron conveyors, calender, packaging machines, machine tools, mechanical engineering, brickworks machinery, tire heating, presses, etc.

Single line systems are available for more than 100 lubricating points and have a maximum pump pressure of 160 bar and a maximum line length of 30 meters which should not be exceeded.

The lubricant, either semi-fluid grease or oil, will be transported by the central lubrication pump to the main line. The main line then branches separately or grouped to distributors near the lubricating point. The distributors measure the lubricant accurate (even with high conterpressure) in the line which leads to the wear point. While the lubrication cycle, the line is pressurized, which then distributes the dosed semi-fluid grease or oil to all the other lubricating points.

The line is pressured during the lubrication cycle. The line then distributes the semi-fluid grease or dosed oil to all lubricating points. Thereby the line is defueld by the connection to the pumps suction chamber. Here, the lubricant is rearranged inside the distributors.

Single-line central lubrication tenders some advantages:

As needed, the dosing amount can be chosen, depending on the lubricating points by adjusting the allocation screw inside the distributor units according to the quantity of lubricant required.

  • Extension with new distributors (or equally reduced) can be easily done, depending on the requirement.
  • The main line is acquitted during lubrication intervals.
  • The amount of lubricant which the distributors dispense is widely independent of counter pressure.
  • It is possible to install fully automatic operation in installations with engine-driven single-line pumps. It is important to use the right adjustment to its upper side.   

Progressive systems:

It is possible to use progressive systems for installations with more than 100 lubricating points in which a progressive pump can be combined with progressive distributors. They are als appropriate for either semi-fluid grease or oil. Then the progressive pump promotes the lubricant through the main line up to the main distributor which spreads the medium into the remaining distributors and the lubrication points. Progressive distributors are able to release lubricant in very small, specified amounts progressively (advancing) and in distinct sequence through all individual outlets to connected wear points. Whenever the last point is supplied, the lubrication system starts with the first position automatically. If an interruption appears during the cycle, lubrication continues from this exact point upon restarting. These systems can be found in fields of application such as machine tools, woodworking machinery, stamps, presses, packaging machinery, cropping, etc.

Progressive systems offer the following advantages:

  • Small investment costs (only one main line, one standard pressure pump and comparatively standard distributors are necessary)
  • Small sizes for the distributors are available
  • Controllable via remote control or movement indicators on distributors
  • Installed back pressure valves offer a switch on and off of multiple lubrication groups via progressive distributors

Chain lubrication systems:

Chain lubrication system for semi-fluid grease/grease

Apron conveyors and others are often equipped with handling devices and grease fittings. Therefore the lubrication systems ensure a continuous and automatic lubrication. A small amount of movable parts are necessery. Lubricating elements are controlled with rotary valves. These elements lubricate bolts on chain wheels during variations.

Chain lubrication systems for oil:

Central lubrication solutions for supplying chain lubricating points with a few amounts of oil without the use of compressed air are also available. These pumps have the ability to supply up to 12 chain lubrication points. Multiple systems can be picked and allow a significant supply amount of lubricating points. An advantage is the small amount of oil which is needed (0,01 cm³ / 0,025 cm³), required per lubricating point and lubrication cycle. These systems are often used in automotive industries.

Multi-line systems:

Multi-line central lubrication is primarely used for lubricating single machines and small machine or device clusters. The lubricant is dosed and metered via multiple small outlets on the pump. Every outlets line connects directly with the lubricating point. Because of the lubricating pumps type of construction the amount of lubricating points is limited to 32. Any further increase in wear points is only possible by using progressive distributors.

The maximal line length depends on multiple parameters:


  • Transportation capabilities and Lubricant consistency
  • Flow volume
  • Operating temperature
  • Pressure of pump
  • Lines cross section

The maximum length of the line can be estimated from 20 to 40 meters. If the line is too lathy the pipes attrition resistance increases, which can surpass the pumps superable pressure.

Multi-line systems are suitable for the following applications:
Cropping, woodworking machinery, machine tools, presses, excavators, cranes, elevators, construction vehicles, conveying systems, packaging machines, stamps, compressors, compactors, stone crushers, and automotive industry.

An advantage of central lubrication is the opportunity of powering the system via the machine that needs to be lubricated and thus emliminating the requirement of extra control systems. For each lubricating points, individual dosing amounts are available.
