In a cement factory an autonomous system uses rolling pulleys for the transfer of wagons on loading lines. Precise and frequent lubrication is desired.
ROLLING PULLEYS IN A CEMENT FACTORY.
Because of the dangerous location, hard accessibility and possible automatic starts of the system, there is poor follow-up of the lubrication of the rolling pulleys. On top the lubrication of the cable on reel is performed with a spray. Multiple cable derailments due to lack of lubrication are the result.
With the installation of multiple MEMOLUB ONE automatic Lubricators on the rolling pulleys we tackled the hard accessibility. With a remote installation at 2m from the lubrication point, maintenance crews can replace the cartridge in safe conditions. On top, they only need to pass by once a year to replace the cartridge.
- Autonomous lubrication provides adapted lubrication, in a safe and secure way.
- No more cable derailments where observed.
