Application Case Study
Case Study No. Case Study 052119 - Bottle Crusher
Application:
General Production Equipment
Industry:
Food & Beverage
Background:
Equipment operated 24/7 making it very difficult to stop for the required maintenance intervals. To lubricate the 12 bearings, the machine had to be completely shut down and locked out and access to the bearings required several panels be removed. When lubrication was done, it was done so very quickly in order to get the equipment back up and running. This led to inadequate, and sometimes completely missed, lubrication.
Solution:
We installed a MEMOLUB® 12-point Multi-Point System to supply constant lubrication to the bearings, while the bottle crusher remained in operation. The lubrication system was mounting to the outside of the equipment, making it possible to replenish the lubricant supply without shutting down the equipment. This was a huge advantage as it allowed maintenance technicians to avoid time-consuming lock-out/tag-out procedures while still remaining compliant.
Worth Mentioning:
Multi-Point Systems with more than 8 outlets have restrictions on tubing OD, tubing length and the viscosity of the lubricant. Please call our staff at 800-635-8170 to answer any questions about sizing and installing your MPS System.
