BENEFITS OF USING AUTO-GREASING SYSTEMS FOR ALL TYPE OF CRANES
- Enhancement of greasing effectiveness due to simultaneous slewing motion and consistent (in terms of grease quantity injected per nipple) / precise (in terms of injection frequency) dosage rate.
- Mitigation of risk to sustain catastrophic failure of crane’s slewing bearing due to inadequate – or even worse lack due to crew negligence – greasing.
- Facilitation of greasing practice by adopting a principal where operator’s intervention is actually limited to slewing function only thus no burden further with
- factors (unfavorable weather conditions/replacement of damaged greasing nipples) that usually have a direct and adverse impact on the intended scope and holding crew back from performing a greasing task. Most importantly crew will build up confidence increasing due to easiness and considerably less time / labor demanding task.
- Procurement cost of auto greasing system as a package (material + labor) is to be counterbalanced by maintaining the slewing bearing in a satisfactory condition thus ensuring crane’s unobstructed operation, minimizing any need for frequent grease
- replenishment / grease consumption and most importantly repair cost in the unfortunate case where a slewing bearing has sustained a damage.
