Bus & Coach
With city buses and coaches operating 24 hours, 7 days a week - proper maintenance is necessary. Changing drivers, tight timetables and strict environmental requirements make this incredibly challenging. Groeneveld-BEKA specializes in these challenges with quality automatic lubrication, oil management and safety support systems.

Automatic lubrication systems
Manual lubrication of steering joints, axles and articulating systems is dirty, unpleasant, time-consuming work. With manual lubrication, it is more difficult for the grease to reach all surfaces, resulting in extra wear. Automatic lubrication with a Groeneveld-BEKA system is a great solution and offers major benefits:
Recommended automatic lubrication systems
The following Groeneveld-BEKA automatic lubrication systems are suitable for buses and coaches:
- Optimum lubrication and sealing of all points.
- Easy to install and extend.
- Quality of the grease is preserved with low work pressure.
- Compact dimensions, ideal for restricted installation place.
- Heavy duty components.
- Suitable for all common lubricants (NLGI 000, 00, 0, 1, 2).
- Designed for self install.
- Longer service life and reduced repair and maintenance costs.
- Improved uptime.
Safety support systems
Groeneveld-BEKA's Greensight obstacle detection and camera systems offer an excellent solution to increase safety. The main benefits at a glance:
Recommended safety support systems
The following safety systems will effectively increase the safety of buses and coaches:
Fluid control systems
Oil levels and quality are key for the proper functioning of an engine: levels that are too high will lead to extra oil and fuel consumption and oil levels too low can cause serious damage. Groeneveld-BEKA's product line-up also includes the Filtakleen, developed to keep oil in perfect condition.
Groeneveld-BEKA's Oilmaster oil management system ensures that the oil is always at an optimum level. Checking the oil level manually, is a thing of the past. This will not only save time, it will also prevent engine damage with all its costly and time consuming consequences. The Oilmaster offers the following benefits:
Recommended fluid control system
Both the Oilmaster and Filtakleen can be applied in the bus and coach segment.
What is lubrication?
The application of a film of grease between moving parts in a machine or vehicle. The film of grease prevents any metallic contact between moving parts, like pins and bushings, bearings and steering knuckles. It also stops dirt, water and dust entering the lubrication point and prevents corrosion. Inadequate lubrication causes wear and tear, machine and vehicle failure and increases costs.
What is grease?
Grease is a thickened oil and always consists of two different components: oil and a thickener. The oil is the actual lubricant, while the thickener ensures that the oil remains in place.
What does automatic lubrication involve?
Automatic lubrication involves pumping the grease from the reservoir of the lubrication system to the lubrication points. The quantity of grease per lubrication point and the interval can both be set in advance.
Which types of automatic lubrication systems are there?
Progressive systems. All lubrication points are consecutively lubricated with the predetermined amount of grease. Parallel systems. All lubrication points are administered the predetermined amount of grease at the same time.
For which situations is an automatic lubrication system suitable?
For all situations in which moving parts need to be separated from each other by means of a film of grease. Groeneveld lubrication systems are most frequently used for wheel loaders, excavators, trucks, trailers, buses, port equipment, mining machines, forestry equipment and agricultural equipment.
