ATS Electro-Lube has developed vibration-activated lubrication systems for use in industrial maintenance.
By incorporating a built-in vibration sensor in our lubricators, ATS offers the most user-friendly solution to machinery lubrication during times of operational demand only.
How it works
Our VSC lubricators offer significant streamlining to industrial lubrication practices. Importantly, they offer cost-savings with zero compromise in lubrication quality.
This vibration sensor control (VSC) allows autonomous control over machinery lubrication by the equipment's operation. This means that no unnecessary lubrication takes place when machinery is idle, out of service, or during non-working hours.
The VSC can be purchased as an optional extra, and comes pre-fitted to your choice of our electro-mechanical lubricators, the Ultimate Luber, Jack Luber, Titan Cartridge Luber, and our oil lubricator the Titan Oiler.
Vibration activated lubricators maintain standard ATS dispense cycles, allowing you to choose a tailored lubrication schedule between 15 days to 24 months depending on your requirements.
When machinery is idle the lubricator's vibration monitor senses no vibration, and it remains in pause mode. The lubrication cycle is thus halted during these periods of inactivity. When the machinery starts up the lubricator will sense vibrations, bringing the unit out of pause mode and beginning the lubrication cycle.
Installing Vibration Activated Lubricators
ATS vibration activated lubrication systems are incredibly simple to install. Programming is selected using our standard DIP switch settings (image 2), whilst constant operating status is indicated by the user-friendly LED display.
The difference between our standard automatic lubricators and our new vibration-sensing units is that the VSC lubricator will only be dispensing grease or oil when machinery is operational.
In effect this creates automated lubrication control. After installation no human interaction is required; instead lubricant is dispensed in line with the demands of the machinery.
The VSC has 3 levels of sensitivity for different applications. Low sensitivity for applications with high vibration, medium sensitivity which is suitable for most standard operating machinery, and high sensitivity where vibration levels are quite low, or the unit may experience high fluctuations in vibration.
