Food & Beverage

Many food & beverage processors need to run their production 24/7 to stay competitive. The maintenance team has a lot to handle under such conditions. Downtime can be extremely costly in this time-sensitive industry. Reliability is essential. Stoppages for maintenance, critical failures, and contamination problems are serious threats to efficient production.

Automatic lubrication systems

Manual lubrication is dirty, inefficient and time consuming work. Efficient and profitable operations require continuous work, without interruption. Also, during manual lubrication it is more difficult for the grease to reach surfaces to be lubricated, resulting in extra wear. Automatic lubrication with a Groeneveld-BEKA system offers major benefits:

 

Save time and money on lubrication related failures and repair
Improved productivity
Grease spreads better across the surface because lubrication takes place while the moving parts are in operation

 

Recommended systems

The following Groeneveld-BEKA automatic lubrication systems are highly suitable for use in the Food & Beverage sector:

    • No wet or slippery products/areas
    • Improved hygiene
    • Environmentally friendly
    • Increased lifetime of belt
  • 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.
