Lubrication Systems For Heavy Plant Machinery

Heavy plant machinery often suffers from poor maintenance practices. With equipment on site for long periods lubrication is far from ideal, and as a result machinery lasts nowhere near its expected life cycle. 

Most commonly this equipment is serviced on a time scheduled basis, resulting in a continual cycle of over-lubrication followed by long periods of under-lubrication.

ATS single point lubricators offer a fully automatic lubricating system for lube points that cannot be serviced by a feed hose, for example independently moving shovels or arms. For these applications the Electro-Luber™ is the best option on the market. It’s waterproof, durable, and proven to be the most reliable  gas-driven lubricator available. 

Our multipoint lubrication systems offer a compact and incredibly cost-effective alternative to centralised lubrication systems for plant machinery.

How to lubricate heavy plant machinery

The difficulty with lubricating heavy plant is that the machines are always on site. They are continually moving around, and it’s hard to implement an effective lubrication strategy without an excellent maintenance schedule.  Furthermore there are numerous lube points on most equipment, making lubrication costly and time consuming. 

The equipment is very expensive, and downtime can have huge knock-on effects if an essential piece of equipment goes down. So it’s essential to get your maintenance schedule sorted to avoid incurring large costs. By employing an automatic lubrication system you can all but eradicate human error in this time consuming process.

ATS lubrication systems deliver a perfectly controlled flow of oil or grease to your equipment. They are so well regulated that units set to the same dispense rate typically empty within 24 hours of each other. Simplifying your maintenance task considerably.

Benefits of automatic lubrication for heavy plant

There are huge benefits to automatic lubrication systems for plant machinery. Not only do they greatly simplify a complicated maintenance schedule, but they offer considerable savings in repair costs, downtime, and lubricant.

Our systems also dramatically cut the number of man hours spent on maintenance, and remove human error from the lubrication programme.
