The bearings on most conveying system components are heavily guarded and largely inaccessible to routine manual PM lubrication, as safety requirements prohibit lubrication during operation. Single-point automatic lubrication is the best all-around answer to effective and reliable conveyor and elevator lubrication.
Fear of over-lubricating with manual grease guns causes many plants to ignore EM lubrication and simply run expensive motors to failure. Judicious use of electro-mechanical automatic single-point lubricators allows plant maintenance to deliver the exact amount of grease that the motor manufacturer recommends, without fear of damaging motor internals.
Blowers and fan shaft bearings are an often overlooked part of plant support equipment. Manual PM lube cycles can be missed, or at best result in a too-much/too-little cycle of lubrication. Automatic single-point lubricators can be installed in hard-to-access areas and deliver grease continually during operation.
