The latest series of Motion Guard automatic lubrication devices from bearings leader Schaeffler is providing Australasian industry with an economical and environmentally friendly method of keeping bearings in vital machinery and plant adequately lubricated.

The Motion Guard automatic lubricator series is used for controlled relubrication by continuously supplying a sufficient quantity of fresh grease to the correct contact points of the roller bearing at the correct time to prevent undersupply or oversupply of lubrication.

"Using Motion Guard is the most economical and environmentally-friendly method of supplying grease to rolling bearings," said Mr Mark Ciechanowicz, Industrial Services Manager, Schaeffler Australia. "It is fully automatic and virtually maintenance free. By providing the precise amount required for a particular rolling bearing, there is no wastage and service life is maximised," he said.

The Motion Guard series has a range of options suited to different applications:

These lubrication devices come in single or multi-top versions, which can deliver grease and/or oil to the precise location where it is needed at intervals set by the user.

The Motion Guard series adds a further cost-savings measure, because it replaces the need for an expensive central lubrication system. Instead, Motion Guard delivers the grease or oil straight to the bearings, where it's needed most.
