We all know that proper bearing lubrication is critical to prevent unplanned machine breakdown, bearing replacement expenses, product loss, unproductive labor costs, and other problems. Getting the RIGHT lubricant in bearings in the RIGHT amount in the RIGHT time is the way to reduce or eliminate many of the problems listed above. However, it’s historically been a problem to achieve without an automatic lubrication system, but now there is a proven unique system from Lubromation for those machines that still rely on manual lubrication.
In days past facilities had reliable sometimes long time lubrication personnel who knew which bearings needed what and how often. Sadly, today that is not often the case, with higher personnel turnover, this experience and ability are often lacking, making reliability a challenge. So, we would like to offer LubeRight as a solution! How does it work?
LubeRight is computer-directed and controlled, monitoring and recording every lubrication cycle with the correct amount of lubricant dispensed under the bearing manufacturer’s requirements. Thus, extending the life of all the bearings. Every lubrication point contains historical data. Each bearing component comes with an acid-proof stainless steel nipple transponder (a chip baked into a washer-like envelope) that identifies with the bearing. The chip holds a unique identification number enabling the system to recognize each lubricating point.
The amount of grease that is to be discharged into the bearing is stored in the memory of the grease meter which is programmed from the PC with the total number of bearings to be lubricated, with both the volume and frequency of lubricant to be applied to each bearing. The grease meter screen can, with the press of a button, be illuminated so that even in the darkest environment the operation is clearly seen.
Once the lubrication round is completed, the communication and charger unit is connected to the grease meter and PC to download the information recorded during the lubrication round. Any missed lubrication points will be highlighted, any over-or-under lubricated bearings will be recorded.
Here is more information on how LubeRight works, step by step!
The “LUBERIGHT®” software is installed on the computer. The administration part of the program contains the data relating to each lubrication point, i.e., name, group, lubricant volume to be dispensed, lubrication frequency, and job number for that particular round. Each lubrication point is connected to a specific transponder. The nipple, along with its transponder, is then installed at the bearing. THE SYSTEM IS NOW READY FOR USE.
To commence the lubrication round, connect the communication and charging unit to the PC and the grease meter and then download the program for the required lubrication round to the grease meter. On connecting the grease meter nozzle to the lubrication point the grease meter identifies the point and instructs the operator how much lubricant to discharge into the bearing.
When the lubrication round is completed, you connect the grease meter to the PC and transfer the data to the software’s administration component. Once downloaded all the items that were due for lubrication will be highlighted in green confirming that the round has been successfully completed
Here’s a screenshot of the upload results for a machine as an example:
Bearings that were completely missed are clearly identified! The exact quantities delivered to each bearing are displayed, sometimes the operator may have made a call to increase the lubrication from the displayed target amount, and that may have been with purpose and is OK, but the delivered quantity is still properly recorded.
Our LubeRight fittings are available for standard and button-head in most all-thread formats.
