AUTOMATIC GREASING SYSTEMS
reliable and fully automatic, a FLO Autogreaser will increase your
component life and overall productivity. The Auto Greasing system dispenses small
measured amounts of grease at frequent intervals while your equipment is
operating, maintaining a consistent grease seal to prevent dirt and
contaminants from migrating into bearings. It will help keep your rolling
equipment out on the road making money and reduce your labor costs when
compared to the traditional method of point-by-point manual

CENTRAL AUTOMATIC GREASING SYSTEM LAYOUT
installed SKF MonoFlex Automatic Greaser is a single-line grease system,
consisting of a gear pump and reservoir available in 2.7 Litre (6 lb.)
and 6 Litre (13 lb.) sizes, external control unit and parallel type
piston distributors. The timer-controlled pump supplies fluid grease to
the distributor blocks via the main line when the pump is in operation.
When the metering chambers of the distributors are full, the excess
grease flows back into the reservoir via a safety valve. At the end of
the pump run-time (start of the interval-time), the pressure relief
valve opens and drops the main line residual pressure to 3 to 15 psi.
The spring-loaded pistons in the distributors then discharge
independently of each other, precisely measured amounts of
grease from the metering chambers to the
grease points. On a transport truck, our Automatic Greasing System
typically services your king pins, tie rods, steering drag link, slacks,
spring pins, transmission cross shaft, brake shafts and fifth wheel if
Features of the FLO SKF
MonoFlex Automatic Greasing System:
Use Any Grease Brand -
Operates with any fluid grease NLGI #000 to 00 that meets greasing system
specifications down to -25 °C or -13 °F.
Totally Electric 12/24
VDC Pump - No air required and therefore no impact on the truck air
Pressure Gauge -
Allows for visual monitoring of greasing system pressure during maintenance
inspections and trouble-shooting.
Distributors - Individual distributors are easily adjusted to rates
of 0.1 to 0.4 cm³ by changing the screw-in volume caps, without
having to disconnect any of the grease lines.
Unit - Installed separately in the cab. It controls and monitors the
pump‘s running and also signals any malfunctions via an indicator
light. The control unit has a microprocessor that stores all the
operating states even after the power has been switched off.
Greasing Systems for Commercial, Municipal & Construction Trucks
operations and transportation companies are constantly under pressure to
save money, increase productivity and make every investment in
commercial vehicles last longer. FLO’s
System is ideal for all of your
heavy duty truck applications - liquid or bulk dry, shunt trucks, city
delivery, regional or long haul. Large fleets can expect to save
hundreds of thousands of dollars over the life of their equipment, by
lowering costs and improving efficiencies.
Systems are also routinely used on special purpose trucks, such as
garbage, concrete, fire, buses, snow ploughs, street sweepers and vacuum.
Grease points on these vehicles are often difficult to access and are subjected
to dirty, wet environments. Adding further complexity, some have over 50
grease points. Your installed autogreasing system lubricates during frequent
turns, stops and starts, and promotes uptime and reliable performance as
you work to meet tight deadlines.
Greasing Systems for Trailers
A quad axle trailer has
between 30-40 grease points. Greasing on a weekly basis takes
between 2 – 3 hours based on shuttling the trailer to and from the lube
bay combined with finding, reaching, cleaning the fitting and then
actually greasing the point. This equals $2000 per unit per year in direct
labor costs, plus the lost revenue time. If a grease point fails due to lack of
grease, associated downtime can easily exceed labour costs. On a
typical Quad axle trailer, a FLO
System will service axle pivots,
axle locks, slack adjusters and brake shaft tube.
