Delta International Sales, which is responsible for sale of GreaseMax lubricators in all countries outside the EU, is celebrating a milestone in the product’s success.
Over the last 25 years, the German engineered GreaseMax system has attracted a wide range of loyal clients who have benefited from this chemically operated, single point, continuous automatic lubricator.
GreaseMax lubricators are used in all industry applications for bearing, linear motion and bush lubrication as well as seal greasing and purging.
GreaseMax’ s effective, efficient design requires no electrics or mechanical items for its operation. Its proven design provides accurate lubrication and total in-service reliability. It is easy to use and simply installed, with little user training required.
GreaseMax operates for a set period after which it can changed over in seconds.
Aside from the advantages of better mechanical reliability, the GreaseMax system requires less downtime from bearing failure and therefore lower maintenance costs, better production rates and lower cost of production.
GreaseMax lubrication ensures that bearings operating in dusty or wet conditions are continuously re-greased and purged. Labyrinth seals operate more efficiently with continuous grease input and purging.
A safe product, GreaseMax has safety certification from the German TÜV organisation. GreaseMax is intrinsically safe and can be used in underground coal mines. There is also no need for personnel to hand grease moving equipment when GreaseMax is installed.
GreaseMax can generally be set up to allow changeovers without the requirement for plant operations or equipment items to be isolated and shut down. This is expected to provide benefits in two areas: production improvements and ROI benefits as production equipment remains online; and a reduction in personnel time for the required management process to isolate and re-activate process equipment.
GreaseMax’ s unique functionality comes from a chemical reaction that starts when the activator cap is screwed into GreaseMax. Gas so generated expands a diaphragm, causing pressure on a piston, which results in the discharge of the lubricant. When the cartridge is empty the piston becomes visible in the transparent cone.
The GreaseMax steel body allows it to be used in hot applications and where pressure is needed, on long feed lines for example. GreaseMax greases bearings and seals and is also suited to purging and preventing ingress of contaminants.
GreaseMax mining applications include:
- Flotation cells
- Mobile plant
