Automatic lubrication systems

It is hard to imagine container handling equipment without automatic lubrication systems. In this sector, optimal lubrication is key to preventing excessive wear of pins and bushings and to keep out dirt, dust and water. Less maintenance work on site is better for operational efficiency and safety. Automatic lubrication is increasingly being used on spreaders, reach stackers, empty container handlers, cranes, automated guided vehicles and terminal tractors. 

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 automatic lubrication systems

These Groeneveld-BEKA automatic lubrication systems are suitable for port equipment:

  • Twin

    • Reliable and ideal for demanding applications.
    • Equipped with a follower plate.
    • The low work pressure of the system ensures the preservation of grease.
  • Twin XL

    • Developed for demanding applications and severe conditions.
    • Grease quality/output are consistent regardless of ambient temperature/viscosity.
    • Suitable for a large number of lubrication points/long line lengths.

    • Heavy duty components
    • Suitable for all common lubricants (NLGI 000, 00, 0, 1, 2).
    • Desmodromic pump element with for highest reliability.

    • Compact dimensions, ideal for restricted installation place.
    • Heavy duty components.
    • Suitable for all common lubricants (NLGI 000, 00, 0, 1, 2).

Safety support systems

The highest priority for terminal and port operators is safety and also applies to companies that work in ports and cargo traffic.  With large numbers of equipment working on port grounds to direct huge streams of containers and goods, guaranteeing safety is challenging. Groeneveld's Greensight obstacle detection and camera systems offer an excellent solution for increasing safety.

Reduced risk of accidents
Improved uptime
Reliable operation


Recommended safety support systems 

The following safety systems increase the safety of port equipment:

  • Greensight obstacle detection system

    • Increased safety around vehicle or machine.
    • Increased uptime.
    • No information overload.
  • Greensight camera system

    • No condensation and frost issues.
    • Possible expansion to four cameras.
    • CAN-bus connectivity prepared.

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 and the Tecreel, for conveying hydraulic power from a fixed point to a moving point. 

Groeneveld-BEKA's Oilmaster ensures that oil is always at an optimum level.  This product saves time and prevents engine damage (costly and time consuming).  Oilmaster offers the following benefits:

No need to check the oil level and fill the oil manually - pure time gain and ease on the road
Always the optimum oil level and correct oil specification
No engine damage as a result of an insufficient amount of oil in the engine


Recommended systems

For port equipmentthe Oilmaster (available as a standard version and as a HD version), the Filtakleen and the Tecreel are the recommended systems.

  • Oilmaster


    The Oilmaster ensures that oil in the engine is always at the optimal level.

  • Oilmaster HD

    Oilmaster HD oil management

    The Oilmaster HD is an excellent oil management solution for heavy duty applications.

  • Filtakleen


    The Filtakleen keeps oil in the perfect condition.

  • Tecreel


    The Tecreel range of self-retracting hose reels provides an efficient way of conveying hydraulic power from fixed to moving points.

  • 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.
