LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Overview of Lincoln CentroMatic® Systems

Lincoln CentroMatic® systems and components are made to match your application. Systems can service one machine, different zones on one machine or even several separate machines. Regardless of the application, the principle of centralized lubrication remains the same: a central pump station automatically delivers lubricant through a single supply line to the injectors. Each injector serves only one lubrication point and may be accurately adjusted to deliver the precise amount of grease or oil required. And have indicator stems that permit visual monitoring of injector operation.

The frequency of the lubrication cycle can be set through an integrated controller, external controller or PLC on an automated system or on a manual system the frequency is decided by the operator.

CentroMatic® systems dispense either grease or oil in measured quantities, unaffected by normal temperature or viscosity changes. For large systems, Lincoln’s single-line design and powerful pumps mean injectors can be located long distances from original refinery containers or bulk lubricant tanks.

Lubricant injectors are externally adjustable without special tools so each bearing can receive the correct amount of lubricant. No under- or over-lubrication at individual points.

CentroMatic® system pump stations can be Air, Electric, Hydraulic or Manual.

CENTROMATIC AIR PUMP STATIONS

Actuated automatically by compressed air at various pre-determined intervals. The pump delivers lubricant to the injectors. When all injectors have cycled, the pump shuts off automatically and vents lubricant pressure. Available with automatic, manual or mechanical controls.

CENTROMATIC ELECTRICAL PUMP STATIONS

Used where compressed air is not available, or electrical operation is preferred. Totally enclosed motor supplies the power requirements of the pumping mechanism. Time control is adjustable to provide predetermined frequency of lubrication.

CENTROMATIC HYDRAULIC PUMP STATIONS

Usually installed on machinery such as coal mining and earth moving equipment which utilize a hydraulic pressure system. The frequency of the lubrication cycle can be set manually or by mechanical or automatic controls.

CENTROMATIC MANUAL PUMP STATIONS

Designed for smaller, individual machines, manual systems provide a low-cost, efficient method of distributing lubricant to the injectors. The pump is hand operated and the machine operator performs the lubrication intervals.

CENTROMATIC SL SERIES INJECTORS

The SL1 series of injectors can be supplied in manifolds (1~6). The smallest model (SL-33) has a minimum output per cycle of 0.016cc while the largest (SL-11) has a maximum output per cycle of 8.2cc but is not available in manifolds.

CENTROMATIC SL-V SERIES INJECTORS

Designed for high pressure and higher venting pressures than the SL1 series. The SL-V models have a minimum output per cycle of 0.25vc while the SL-V XL has a maximum output per cycle of 5.00cc. Both models are supplied in manifolds (1~6).

SYSTEM CONTROLLERS & GREASE FLOW DETECTORS

Designed to control the lubrication cycle frequency pumps. Several different models may be chosen to control a pump depending on the degree of automation, monitoring required and voltage availability. Monitors may also be interfaced with machine control systems. The addition of the grease flow detectors enable lubrication points to be monitored for grease flow.

MECHANICAL GREASE SHUT OFF SYSTEM

Designed to ensure that when a reservoir has achieved the maximum level of grease the fill system is shut off providing the operator an easier and safer removal of the grease coupling. In addition, no additional grease from the fill hose spills contaminating the surrounding ground.


MINING

An important consideration in the mining market is effective equipment lubrication. Correct lubrication not only reduces wear, but also acts to purge the pins and bushings of contamination.

AGRICULTURE

Today's farmers face many challenges, including the protection of their machinery in the harsh environment in which it operates. Lubrication management is a must to ensure safety and productivity.

FOOD & BEVERAGE

Moisture, temperature changes, product spillage and washdown practices all contribute to reduced bearing life which, in turn, can lead to reduced levels of productivity.

PRINTING

Consistency and reliability in ink supply are vital ingredients in any printing operation. The automation of lubrication management ensures presses operate in optimum condition.

ONROAD TRANSPORT

Fleet operations and transportation companies are constantly under pressure to save money, increase productivity and make every investment in commercial vehicles last longer.

OTHER INDUSTRIES

Lubrication Management provides considerable benefits to a number of industries. These include Stevedoring, Wind Farming, Railways, plus many more...

LINCOLN PREASSURELESS GREASE SHUTOFF SYSTEM

This video explains the sequence of events for a Pressureless shutoff system for grease filling. this can be used in a number of applications including mining. We used the new PMV as a fill pump to the main pump station; this set up can easily be used with bucket supplied grease. The yellow grease pump station is something that would be mounted onto the machine. For this we used the 27kg tank with constant level visual indicators. Results in a safe and fast filled grease tank.
