Obtaining the maximum productivity from automated equipment means round-the-clock operation with no maintenance issues. That’s why original equipment manufacturers and end-users alike are opting for centralized lubrication. With no attendant needed to fill and adjust tens, sometimes hundreds, of air treatment assemblies distributed throughout the plant, centralized lubrication is constant, consistent, and self adjusting. A properly applied central lubrication system not only delivers the correct amounts of sub-micron lubricant aerosols to key pneumatic components in a complex machine assembly, it is easier to service. Filling a single large reservoir is the only maintenance necessary. This presentation elaborates on the installation, operation, and benefits of centralized lubrication for pneumatic valves and actuators in sophisticated industrial automation systems.
- Recognize the benefits of centralized lubrication for pneumatic valves and actuators in sophisticated industrial automation systems
- Learn how centralized lubrication eliminates maintenance and lowers total cost of ownership
- Understand why sub-micron oil aerosols and improved flow in the automation piping system ensures delivery to the key pneumatic components
