Automated Lubrication Systems

An automated lubrication system delivers a controlled amount of lubricant to multiple locations on a machine whilst the machine is operating.

Most of these systems are usually fully automated, via a system that requires a manual pump or button activation, or even a direct signal from an existing control system. All of these can still be identified as a centralized lubrication system.

Automatic Lubrication System Types

The system can be classified into two different categories that can share a lot of the same components.

  • Oil systems
  • Grease systems

The most commonly used Automatic Lubrication System types are:

  • Single Line Parallel,
  • Dual Line Parallel.
  • Single Line Progressive.

Automatic lubrication systems are key aspects in most maintenance & reliability programs. These systems supply various lube points with metered amounts of grease or oil from a central location. The pump supplies the system with the chosen lubricant and this is generally fed from a reservoir that is easily accessible. The options are almost limitless and are application specific. These systems have the option to be monitored remotely with feedback and can be tied directly into your plant's PLC or existing SCADA type systems.
