LubeMon is a fully independent system for monitoring grease lubrication points, and is available from Florite Australia . It is capable of monitoring both automatically greased points as well as manually greased points. It can be used to monitor a few vital points or a whole lubrication system.
LubeMon is based on a special grease meter to be installed directly on to the grease point measuring the exact amount of grease being fed into the point. The grease meter is connected to a control unit for continuous monitoring. Large systems are connected over a data bus to a PC that offers advanced statistics of the points greased.
The meter is of oval gear type with built-in magnets in one of the oval gear wheels and together with a reed switch, which closes twice per revolution. The device is a very baccurate displacement measuring unit. It is available in two executions: Aluminium and acid-proof steel (AISI 316)
