General Production Equipment
Lubrication was done manually, and only when the machine was able to be shut down. Also, cement contamination introduced at the zerks caused seal blockage and the turbine stopped from the resulting pressure build-up.
Two 5-Point MEMOLUB lubrication systems were installed to service all the lube points automatically, at regular intervals. Lubricators were placed in a convenient location so that the lube cartridges could be changed without shutting down the machine.
