PERMA lubricators, represented by HTL Perma Australia Pty Ltd , now have an even broader range of auto lubrication systems designed for power transmission chain lubrication.
As the demand for improved equipment reliability, less downtime and lower maintenance costs grows, so to does the need to achieve good practices in the area of lubrication maintenance.
One area that has traditionally proven challenging for maintenance departments is the efficient and reliable lubrication of chains.
Power transmission chains usually require small amounts of lubricant to be applied at regular, short intervals. To achieve this via manual lubrication is not practical due to the high cost of labour. Also, applying large volumes of lubricant at the one time is counter productive.
From a lubrication point of view, each joint in a chain should be considered as a journal bearings for which proper lubrication is essential in order to achieve maximum service life.
Lack of lubrication will lead to rapid wear between the pin and bushings, which result in chain elongation and eventually progress to failure.
Perma lubrication systems provide a range of alternatives to solve these maintenance challenges.
Perma can provide a range of solutions - such as automatic lubricators with a broad range of custom manufactured application brushes and accessories, such as custom manufactured oil throttles and bracket systems..
Each of the Perma Classic, Futura, Star and Ecosy lubrication systems can be filled with the client’s choice of chain lubricant.
