This bottle unscrambler operated 24/7 making it very difficult to stop for the manufacturer-recommended service intervals. To lubricate the 5 bearings, the machine had to be completely shut down and locked out; and access to the bearings required several panels be removed. So, 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.
We installed a MEMOLUBÂ® 5-point Multi-Point Lubrication System to supply constant lubrication to the bearings, while the unscrambler was in operation. The lubrication system was mounted 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 with the facilityâ€™s safety protocols.
