Conveyor systems are used in all types of industries and in many different environments. From exposure to extreme weather in the quarrying industry to the hygienically sensitive conditions in the food industry, conveyor reliability is always directly related to profitability and efficiency. Since a conveyor system is a critical link in a company’s ability to move its products in a timely fashion, any disruption can be costly.
Proper lubrication is critical in helping to reduce component wear and contamination. However, some of the toughest lubrication problems are found in conveyor lines. Maintenance teams are presented with long walking distances, ladders and stairs. Some lubrication points are located in hard to reach or dangerous places, and some are simply overlooked. Manual lubrication is not the answer.
Our Perma automatic single-point lubricators are ideal for all conveyor applications. Small to medium-sized bearings in warehouse conditions can be served by small gas-operated lubricators, while large bearings in extreme conditions can be reliably protected by our larger-capacity, electro-mechanical units.
Our customers in the wood, paper and pulp industries, as well as major power plants use these single-point lubricators extensively to keep their conveying systems operating continuously. They understand the value of preventing just one failure on a critical belt pulley bearing due to inadequate lubrication through the use of these economical units.
