Grease Central Lubrication

Central lubrication system with grease are the most commom form of lubrication for utility vehicles or machines, whose bearings work with moderate speeds and reach operating temperatures of up to 80°C. We offer systems with various pumps which differ in terms of reservoir volume, voltage and control, as well a variety of equipment for systems with up to 76 lubricating points.

Grease central lubrication

The central lubrication of the system is carried out via progressive system. The core of these systems is a progressive pump, which delivers lubricant progressively into the pipe system. The grease then passes through progressive distributors, they supply it via main and secondary distributors to the lubricating points. The sequence is set before. As soon as the system reaches the last lubricating point, it restarts from the beginning.

Advantages of grease central lubrication

  • Optimally timed and proportioned lubrication of your lubricating points
  • Lubrication is carried out during operation time (no machine pause times)
  • Higher productivity of your machines
  • Higher durability and less maintenance costs
  • Lower costs for lubricant due to exact dosing
  • Never forget a lubricating points, always reliable supply
  • Higher work safety and less environmental pollution

Advantages of grease over semi-fluid grease

The advantage of grease (e.g. NLGI class 2) is the creation of an elastic grease sleeve around bearings and therefore prevention of intrusion by dirt or humidity. It is waterproof and does not drip at higher temperatures. Semi-fluid grease would just flow out of the bearing.
In summer, with high temperatures, there is a risk of flowing semi-fluid grease soiling the vehicle or machine. Therefore, grease is a cleaner, environmentally friendly and work safe (risk of slipping) solution.
Experience shows that grease lubrication is even more cost-efficient because it only requires one third of the amount of lubricant a semi-fluid grease lubrication would.

Lubricating nipple extension

If you choose against a complete system with pump, we can offer an alternative with lubricating nipple extensions. For this, lubricating points are relocated to a better-to-reach position. This eliminates the search for lubricating points, every point gets lubricated securely. However, with this form of lubrication, your have to clean and lubricate by yourself.
