Equipment failure occurs for a number of reasons. Missed lubrication due to poor maintenance is one of the primary ones. Automatic Lubricant Systems (also known as automatic lubricators or lubricant dispensers) operate on the principle that automatic and consistent lubrication over long intervals is superior to occasional, manual lubrication. Automatic lubrication offers multiple benefits: It keeps constant pressure and positive, fresh lubrication on bearing points, keeping moisture and other contaminants out of the bearings. At the same time, automatic lubrication delivers only the precise amount (neither too little nor too much) of the specific lubricant needed to keep equipment running.
Automatic lubricators are used extensively on equipment in the Agriculture, Energy, Food and Beverage, Mining/Minerals, Manufacturing, and Waste Water Treatment industries to maximize equipment uptime.
