Single Point Lubrication
A single-point lubricator is a device engineered to regularly and automatically deliver a small amount of clean grease or lubricating oil to a specific area. It is most often used to keep bearings lubricated but can also be utilised to lubricate pumps, electric motors, fans, chains and conveyors, among other applications. Manually greasing bearings often result in over- and under-greasing, eventually leading to premature bearing wear. Single-point lubricators can be configured to dispense the correct lubricant quantity to a single point for a predetermined time period. Single-point lubricators are a popular method of extending the life of bearings and other components as well as preventing prolonged downtime due to lubrication-related failures.
