LUBRICATION

Effective lubrication does so much more than simply keep your machinery running.

Truly effective lubrication has the capability to actually reduce your overall operating costs, boost your productivity, ensure product safety and hygiene and reduce your environmental impact.

The Right Solution For Life

LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT

We specialise in helping our customers implement operator driven lubrication programmes. 

We have the experience and proven track record to combine and tailor these elements to  overcome your specific challenges and project manage a full implementation programme

The programme covers the following aspects:

Full site survey and documentation complete with lubrication specification and scheduling. We also provide full operator training, line-side colour-coded lubrication boards, whilst ensuring conformity to legislation and health/safety requirements, backed up with condition monitoring solutions to ensure we meet your management KPI’s.

STORAGE SOLUTIONS

Ensuring safe, compliant and convenient storage for your lubricants is as important as selecting the lubricants themselves.

It’s essential to have robust storage, clear labelling and maintained container management so that when you need your lubricants you get the product you want in the optimum condition.

Lubricant storage also needs to take into account HSE legislation including safety data sheet storage and bunding for spills.

CONDITION MONITORING

We are a leading supplier of Condition Monitoring equipment, training and services including full onsite data capture, analysis, trending and reporting.

We can help develop your lubrication regime, taking the first steps towards creating an integrated operator driven, condition based maintenance programme. Additionally we are an SKF Certified Maintenance Partner (CMP) and as such we have developed a software suite for lubrication management including trending and usage data.

Mobil Gear Oils

MOBIL SHC Gear Series 150/220/320/460

Features:

  • Superb protection from micropitting fatigue wear as well as high resistance to traditional scuffing wear
  • Excellent resistance to degradation at high temperatures
  • Low traction
  • High viscosity index equating to reduced viscosity change with temperature
  • Excellent resistance to rust and corrosion and very good demulsibility
  • Excellent compatibility with common gearbox materials and with mineral-based gear oils


Advantages and Potential Benefits:

  • Helps extend gear and bearing life in enclosed gear drives operating under extreme conditions of load, speed and temperature
  • Helps reduce unplanned downtime; less maintenance - especially critical for difficult-to-access gearboxes
  • Helps extend oil life and drain intervals and reduce oil consumption, which can lower maintenance costs
  • Helps reduce energy consumption and lower operating temperatures
  • Ability to operate at both high and low temperatures: especially critical in remote applications with no oil cooling or heating
  • Helps extend gear and bearing life
  • Fewer filter changes; which can help reduce maintenance costs

Reduce Costs and Improve Safety with Simalube Automatic Lubricators

COST EFFECTIVE MAINTENANCE

The introduction of a simlaube fully automated lubrication system greatly extends the service life of components such as bearings, chains, gearboxes, conveyors and other mechanical components.

When comparing traditional manual lubrication (grease gun) with an automatic lubrication system the savings can be substantial. For example, a production site which changes from manual to automatic lubrication on just 50 grease points can save up to £7,000 a year. A fully automated site with approx 500 grease points can save up to £70,000 a year!

MINIMISE DANGER AND PREVENT ACCIDENTS

When installed, workers spend much less time in danger zones where lubrication point are difficult to access, have less exposure to noise, dust and the danger of rotating machine parts, resulting in increased workplace safety.
