THE importance of equipment reliability has become a point of focus for all industries around Australia.
In recent years the water treatment industry has taken proactive steps to increase equipment reliability by installing automatic lubricators on equipment for which manual greasing is not a particularly enticing task.
The HTL Perma Futura auto lube filled with water resistant SF01 grease has proven particularly popular.
The perma Futura is totally waterproof (it can even operate under water) and due to its full plastic construction is corrosion resistant. It can withstand long-term exposure to the conditions that are experienced in the water treatment industry.
Another feature of automation that has proven attractive to the water treatment industry is lubrication points are often widely spread and difficult to reach. Therefore the move from manual grease to reliable automatic greasing has provided wins in the areas of safety improvements and the time management.
The Perma Futura can be set to dispense its volume of grease over a one, three, six or 12-month period. For typical water treatment applications three and six-month settings are proving to be most common.
