For all rail vehicles, from freight trains to streetcars, wear on the wheels and the rail is a major maintenance factor. The noise generated by wheels on tracks, especially in curves, adds environmental problems to the service needs of rail equipment.
A FluiLub wheel flange lubrication system will reduce wear on the rail and wheel while it cushions the noise load in curves in a very efficient way. FluiLub wheel flange lubrication offers innovative technology with tried-and-tested components and best cost-benefit-ratio.

Automatic lubrication system
The FluiLub system uses thixotropic lubricating media with high solids content in order to achieve an ideal combination of adhesion and flowability in a spray lubricant for high-stress applications.
As a pneumatic spraying system, FluiLub installations require no moving parts except the pump. This means; less wear, little maintenance requirements and therefore low life-cycle costs.

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.
