Lifting Equipment Maintenance Challenges
Lifting equipment is often subject to some pretty harsh conditions. More often than not it’s outside in all weathers - frost, snow, rain - and it’s subjected to heavy loads. If it’s being used near the coast the equipment is susceptible to corrosion from salt, and in the construction industry high particulate levels can cause bearing failure.
Improperly maintained lifting equipment can be very dangerous, and catastrophic failure could lead to incredibly costly damage to property, or worse to loss of life.
Many of the lubrication points on lifting equipment are inaccessible, or hazardous because of height or moving parts. These awkward lube points not only offer further safety risks to operators, but can lead to servicing being overlooked, increased wear, and therefore recurring failures.
ATS Electro-Lube offer a simple solution to combat all of these problems. Whether you’re lubricating a crane, a pulley, or a scissor lift, our automatic lubricators will not only improve safety and productivity, but will save significant maintenance hours, as well as money wasted on preventable repairs.
Our single point lubricators provide continuous lubrication, controlled precisely to the requirement of the machinery. This is the perfect lubrication system for pulleys, winches, hoists, or any equipment which generates friction. They are waterproof to depths of 10m, and operate down to -40°C, so even in the wettest, harshest environments they will protect expensive machinery.
Using our motor-driven lubricators the user can create an efficient multi-point system, servicing up to 12 lubrication points from a single unit.These powerful lubricators use our patented pump technology to generate pressures of 100 bar.
ATS’ unrivaled power means that our lubricators can service lubrication points up to 10m away! This means that hazardous points on lifting equipment can be connected via a lubrication hose, and from then on they can be serviced from a safe working area.
Our lubricators are so precise that if multiple units are set to the same dispense rate they will typically empty within 24 hours of each other. This makes scheduling incredibly simple, no more forgotten lubrication points. With a dispense cycle of up to 24 months the maintenance hours saved on re-lubrication allow for increased productivity and pro-active maintenance.
By applying a positive pressure at the lubrication point, ATS lubrication systems significantly reduce the chance of contaminant ingress, leading to less wear of components, less excessive heat, and thereby lowered operating costs and chance of failure
