LUBRICATION MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Overview of SKF ProFlex Systems

SKF ProFlex progressive lubrication systems are designed for oil, semi-fluid grease and hard grease NLGI grades 000 to 2 and are used on small and medium sized machines.

A feed pump or flow limiter supplies lubricant through the main line to the distributor that serves each outlet progressively, with a defined amount of lubricant. To control the system’s function, only one metering piston has to be controlled on a frequency basis.

SKF ProFlex progressive lubrication systems are designed for up to 150 lubrication points with grease or oil. In combination with parallel flow limiters, they can serve up to 1.000 lubrication points or even more with oil. SKF ProFlex includes a wide range of progressive distributors based on a block, segmental or modular design with 2 to 20 outlets, flow rates of 0.01 to 6.000 cm³/min. and system pressures as high as 300 bar.

SKF KFG(S) PUMPS

The KFG(S) pump units are electrically driven piston pumps comprised of four main components: Housing with pump elements (maximum of 3), reservoir (2, 6 or 10 litres) with fill level monitoring, internal control units (S) or external control units and attachments.

SKF KFA(S) PUMPS

The KFA(S) pump units are electrically driven piston pumps comprised of four main components: Housing with pump elements (maximum of 2), a1 litre reservoir with fill level monitoring, internal control units (S) or external control units and attachments.

VPM PROGRESSIVE FEEDERS

VPM progressive feeder sections with built-in check valve, have two outlets on each side, one each on the side and one on top, but only one may be used. Available with 3 to 10 sections, with outputs per cycle and outlet from 0.05cc to 0.7cc.

VPKM PROGRESSIVE FEEDERS

VPKM progressive feeder sections have only one outlet on each side of the section and is not equipped with built-in check valves. Adjacent outlets on one side can be combined. Available with 3 to 10 sections with outputs per cycle and outlet from 0.04cc to 0.36cc.

VPBM PROGRESSIVE FEEDERS

Block-type design, smallest feeder group, used mainly for grease-lubricated machines and equipment. An internal plug allows the combining of adjacent outlets. Uniform metering of 0.13 cm³ per cycle per outlet.

ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNIT IG502-2-E

For use with systems fitted with KFG and KFA lubrication pumps, the IG502-2-E universal control unit is used to control and monitor centralized lubrication systems on commercial vehicles. The unit has a voltage-independent data memory and display panel.

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...
