SM LUBER – AUTOMATIC GREASING SYSTEMS FOR COMPACT EQUIPMENT
The SM Luber (Small Machine) was designed as a compact yet powerful and economical automatic greasing system, specifically for any compact machine where space for attachments is at a premium. Mini-excavators, telehandlers, skid-steers, sidewalk tractors – any machine where a regular full-sized autogreaser just wouldn’t be practical is a potential candidate for using the SM Luber.
Bearing failure resulting from improper greasing is a major cause of equipment downtime and significant unnecessary maintenance costs to companies that include compact equipment as part of their fleet. The majority of failures are caused by: contamination of bushings by dust, dirt and moisture; inadequate amounts of grease applied to bearings; or over-greasing of key pivot points.
Direct costs resulting from inadequate greasing can include: replacement bearings; labor to repair or replace bearings; cost of renting another machine; lost time and its impact on productivity. Indirect, but very real costs of inadequate greasing include: wasted grease, environmental issues, safety or housekeeping issues, and higher labour costs related to inefficient manual greasing practices.
RELIABLE & FULLY AUTOMATIC PROTECTION OF ALL CRITICAL WEAR POINTS
The SM Luber will increase overall productivity and machine availability, utilization and resale value, while lowering on-going operating costs. The system dispenses small measured amounts of lubricant at frequent intervals while your telehandler is operating, maintaining a consistent lubricant seal to prevent dirt and contaminants from migrating into bearings.
With the SM Luber, you don’t have to mess around with complicated grease pumps or other methods of filling the reservoir. Simply remove the lid like you would on a grease gun, insert your standard grease cartridge, replace the lid and you are ready to go.
Increases life of critical wear points = Protect your investment.
Less unplanned downtime = Increase your profits.
Reduces operator involvement = Keep your operators focused on their primary job.
Improves safety = You don’t have to climb over equipment to grease.
Fewer replacement parts to stock = Lower your operating costs.
Increases resale value of your equipment
Uses your standard NLGI #2 in-shop grease in standard grease cartridges = No inventory of higher-cost grease, no special pumps / cartridge unloaders, saves time refilling.
SM LUBER AUTOMATIC GREASING SYSTEM LAYOUT
The system includes a 12 VDC timer and a mounting bracket. The standard off-the-shelf model services up to 12 grease points using a single distribution valve.
The SM Luber comes with all the necessary hose and fittings and includes a simple step-by-step manual. You can install it yourself and avoid the installation costs normally associated with other, more complex lubrication systems.
