Feature Of Progressive Grease Lubrication System

A progressive grease lubrication system is a type of centralized lubrication system that delivers measured amounts of grease to multiple lubrication points using a single supply line and a series of metering valves. It is also known as a nonparallel system, as the metering valves are installed in-line and operate in a sequential manner. It consists of a pump, a primary progressive metering valve, and optionally one or more secondary progressive metering valves. The pump supplies grease to the primary metering valve, which distributes it to the secondary metering valves or directly to the lubrication points. Each metering valve has a number of outlets, each serving one lubrication point. The amount of grease delivered by each outlet depends on the size and design of the metering valve.

  • Accuracy: A progressive grease lubrication system can deliver precise and consistent amounts of grease to each lubrication point, as the metering valves are calibrated to provide the required volume of grease per cycle. The system can also handle different types of grease with varying viscosities and consistencies.
  • Monitoring: A progressive grease lubrication system can be easily monitored and controlled, as the system operates under pressure and any blockage or failure in the system will cause a pressure increase that can be detected by a pressure switch or a relief valve. The system can also be equipped with visual indicators or electronic sensors to provide feedback on the status and operation of the system.
  • Flexibility: A progressive grease lubrication system can be adapted to various applications and machines, as the system can service up to 150 lubrication points over distances of up to 15 meters. The system can also be expanded or modified by adding or removing metering valves or outlets, as long as the system pressure and balance are maintained.
  • Efficiency: A progressive grease lubrication system can provide effective and continuous lubrication to the critical components of the machine, as the system can operate in harsh conditions and withstand high temperatures, pressures, shocks, and vibrations. The system can also reduce grease waste and contamination, as well as extend the service life and performance of the components.

A progressive grease lubrication system is a suitable and reliable solution for many applications, such as construction machines, agricultural machines, material handling, asphalt mixing plants, wind turbine generators, food and beverage facilities, oil and gas industry, and more.
