Industrial applications require the consistent running of conveyor belts. Unplanned downtime influences the total performances of plants: to keep conveyor belts, bearings, chains and gears running, proper lubrication is indispensable. Groeneveld-BEKA offers both a fully engineered solution and a self-install system. Groeneveld-BEKA systems automatically lubricate applications with no need to stop the operation. The crucial advantages of automatic greasing ensure that the lifetime of the conveyor belt will be significantly improved.

Automatically lubricates better
Manual lubrication of pins and bushings on conveyor belts is dirty, time consuming work. Groeneveld-BEKA products lubricate equipment while in operation and this helps improve profitability. Manual lubrication is inefficient and unsafe because there's a potential for some surfaces not to be lubricated and some areas may be hard to reach. Automatic lubrication with a Groeneveld-BEKA system offers these major benefits:
Fully engineered system
The Twin dual-line automatic lubrication system is designed for applications where the reliability of the system is crucial. Twin is used all over the world for the most demanding installations with long line lengths and for extremely low or high ambient temperatures. Twin can be fully engineererd to suit any application and offers great operational benefits with helps with an excellent return on investment.

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.
