Machines with a high “density” of lubrication points are encountered in heavy process industry. This means that there are many lubrication points in a small area. In such applications it is profitable to install a large central lubricating system. Even if the standard pump centre is expensive, the cost per lubrication point is not paricularly high. Examples of such applications are lubrication of paper machines, causticizing plants, cleaning plants, bark presses, debarking drums, sawmills and various applications in steel mills and plants for non-ferrous metals, lubrication of guide vanes in water turbines, etc.
Assalub’s dual-line is designed for rough working conditions. The dozers are available both in yellow passivated steel and in acid-resistant steel (AISI 316) for severe environments.
A dual-line system can include more than 1,000 lubrication points. These systems are equipped with Asalub’s special grease pump for dual-line systems and are controlled either by a control centre for one or more lubrication channels or an existing process computer in the production unit.
Oil systems for consumption lubrication are used in heavy process industry mainly for conveyors. Other applications include sawmill machineries, printing presses, breweries, etc. Also these systems can be large, with 1,000 or more lubrication points.
Assalub plan to build turn-key systems for oil circulation lubricating systems. Such systems are used both for lubrication and for cooling of the bearings – mainly in paper machines, rolling mills and in large gearboxes.
