Applications

The single-point lubricator simalube is used in various industries. The lubrication system is available with a wide range of greases and oils and can be used both under water and in hazardous areas.

Automation industry

More and more production processes nowadays run automatically in part or in full to save costs, increase efficiency and improve personnel safety. For these processes to run as smoothly and steadily as possible, automatic and continuous lubrication is essential. With simalube lubricators, the lubrication process is automated and also increases machine efficiency. This results in fewer costs and ultimately more profit.

Installations:
Robots, stackers, conveyor belts, cranes, palletizing systems

Applications:
Bearings, chains, guides, gears and other mechanical parts

Automotive industry

One of the world's largest industries is automobile manufacturing. Fierce competition, the increasing technology as well as digitization require highly efficient and automated production. An environment that fits perfectly to the simalube automatic lubricator: it lubricates the production lines continuously over a period of 1-12 months, reducing downtimes.

Installations:
Robots, conveyors, presses, turntables

Applications:
Rolling bearings, chains, pinions, gears, rails and guides

Building industry

Construction machines and its components must be operational under extreme workloads at all times and in any weather conditions. High functionality and productivity of the machines must always be guaranteed - and without downtimes. This is ensured by the simalube automatic lubricator, which supplies the construction machines continuously and with sufficient lubricant for 1-12 months.

Installations:
Cranes, excavators, dump trucks, vibratory plates, mixers, crushers, compressors, conveyor belts, concrete mixers, concrete pumps, rollers, etc.

Applications:
Bearings, motors, gear units, chains, ropes, sliding surfaces, sprockets, cable drums, winches, joints, guides, gearwheels and other mechanical parts

Cable cars and mountain railways

The maintenance of cable cars and mountain railways places high demands on the operation managers. The conditions of use are considered to be harsh, since maintenance is often carried out outdoors (for example on meter-high masts) and the extreme temperature fluctuations, dirt, frost, snow and dampness can damage the plant. A continuous supply of the lubrication points is therefore essential. The maintenance and the correct supply of lubrication points have a direct effect on the economic efficiency of rope, mountain and rack railways as well as towing lanes.

Installations:
Rope lubrication, catenary pulleys, car doors, rope and drive gearboxes, drawbars (cab and hanger connection), fans and chillers, power units/motors

Applications:
Bearings, chains, guides, gears and other mechanical parts

Cement industry

The use of simalube significantly reduces maintenance costs. simalube extends the life of bearings, chains, guides, gears and other mechanical parts due to its continuous lubricant delivery. In addition, the dispensers are ideal for use in hard to reach places. The installation of the simalube reduces the time spent by employees in hazardous areas. Regular, manual lubrication of the equipment with a grease gun is unnecessary.

Installations:
Conveying systems, belt tensioners, fan systems, gearboxes/motors, sieves, silos/silo fillings, roller screens/relapsing tables, crushers, transport systems, mixing beds, rotary kilns, mills, fans, pumps, bagging, palletizing

Applications:
Bearings, chains, ropes, guides, gears and other mechanical parts

Chemical plants

The chemical industry is a highly industrialized industry. With the help of a continuous lubricant supply by simalube, machine downtimes can be prevented or shortened. This results in an efficient and profitable production.

Installations:
Motors, fans, conveyor belts, heaters, etc.

Applications:
Bearings, chains, guides, gears and other mechanical parts

Conveying

Conveying as a sub-discipline of mechanical engineering includes all facilities for the transport of general cargo or bulk material. Continuous conveyors, however, are exposed to high loads in terms of utilization, location and operating times. And this is where the simalube lubricator is being used, as this environment is perfect for it. The continuous lubrication provided by the simalube relieves all conveyor components and offers many advantages: fewer operating failures, reduced risk of corrosion, fewer malfunctions, longer machine dispensing cycles and many other advantages.

Installations:
Ropes, hoists, pulleys, rope drums, traction sheaves, round steel chains, link chains, sprockets and drums. Chassis components: wheels and rails. Load-handling equipment: load hooks, hook harnesses, shackles, pliers and clamps, buckets and grabs. Conveying components: engines and brakes.

Applications:
Bearings, chains, guides, gears and other mechanical parts

Cranes

A crane and its components are exposed to all kinds of weather and many dirt emissions. The components of a crane must therefore be supplied continuously and with sufficient lubricant at all times. Automatic lubrication with simalube offers crane owners, for example, an ideal solution.

Installations:
Sliding surfaces, sprockets, cable drums, winches, load cables and joints

Applications:
Bearings, chains, ropes, guides, gears and other mechanical parts

Elevators

The guide rails on elevators need to be permanently lubricated in order to prevent dry friction. By precisely dispensing the right amount of lubricant, the simalube lubrication system reduces the need for maintenance and cleaning work on the elevator cabin and shaft. It is therefore a particularly good system to use on maintenance-intensive elevators installed on the outside of buildings and on panoramic elevators.

Applications:
Guide rails, traction cables, bearings, diverter pulley

Escalators

Escalators that are in constant use often start to squeak. To avoid this, optimum lubrication of the system is required. simalube lubricates the drive and step chains as well as the guides of escalators automatically, continuously and economically. The simple installation, the infinitely adjustable dispensing cycles and precise lubrication make simalube an indispensable system for escalators and moving walkways.

Applications:
Drive chain, step chain, step guide, handrail

The simalube dispensing unit oils the chain continuously; the brush set is fixed directly to the U-profile.
The brush lubricates the chain on both sides; the plastic rollers are only slightly dampened.
The lubrication system comprises a short brush, a fixing component and a dispenser and is suitable for use with Schindler escalators. The system is fixed directly to the step.
Fans

Fans and blowers must be lubricated at regular intervals. The fans are used in almost all industries: in hotels, hospitals, chemical and power plants, paper and recycling industries, in mining, on ships and many others. The vast majority of fans convey air and the areas of application are correspondingly diverse: cooling, ventilation, explosion protection, air supply, drying, air conditioning and transport.

Installations:
Drive motors, drive shafts, electric motors

Applications:
Bearings and seals

Food and beverage industry

The lubricator supplies lubrication points reliably and continuously with lubricant during the operating time for a preset period of 1-12 months.
