Greasing Systems

Single Line

Specially developed for transport applications

When the lubrication cycle is started, the grease is drawn from the reservoir and pumped to the injectors, via the main pipe. The injectors simultaneously force a specified quantity of grease through the secondary pipes, to the points to be lubricated. When the pressure in the main pipe reaches a preset value (in bar), the pressure control valve opens, and the grease is no longer pumped into the main pipe, but back into the tank. The pressure control valve maintains the preset pressure in the system, through the entire lubrication cycle.

Advantages

  • Less maintenance
  • Less wear
  • Lower repair costs
  • Optimum availability of your equipment
  • Greater operating reliability
  • Lessens the need for service work

Twin Line

Specially developed for off-road applications and the industrial and agricultural sector

At the program-controlled interval time, the integrated electronic control unit starts up the plunger pump. This pump builds up a pressure of at least 100 bar (1500 psi) within the system, at which point the pump automatically switches itself off. Via the main pump with its injector units, injector blocks and the secondary pipes, the correct quantity of grease is supplied to the lubrication points.

Once the pump is switched off, the system remains under pressure for a set period. As a result, all injectors have sufficient time to pass on the grease to the bearings (full lubrication effect).

Advantages

  • Simple to Expand
  • Constant metering under all temperature conditions
  • Wide metering variation
  • Simple and rapid installation
  • Monitors main pipe network with fault indication
  • Diagnostics facility
  • Databse

CompAlube

Specially developed for the tandem trailer market

This is a new and more compact version of the proven Groeneveld System, using the same EP-0 grease.

This new system is easier to install (about 2-1/2 hours) with both timer and injectors contained in the pump housing. No main grease line is needed. It comes with a two kilogram reservoir and an exchangeable, sealed plastic grease cartridge for no-mess refills. It can handle up to 19 grease points (the larger system holds up to eight kilograms of grease for servicing up to 60 grease points). The CompAlube system works off the brake system with adjustable greasing cycles - at every brake application between 10 and 80. The amount of grease pumped per cycle can also be adjusted up to 20 cc. CompAlube works well with EP-0 grease at temperatures as low as -25ºC.

Advantages

  • Less maintenance
  • Less wear
  • Lower repair costs
  • Optimum availability of your equipment
  • Greater operating reliability

BreakAlube

Specially developed for tough operating conditions

Field experience in demolition hammer greasing, important safety features, and high-quality specifications are the basis of the BreakAlube system. All critical parts of BreakAlube can handle the toughest operating conditions, thus warranting high-operational reliability and long-life.

Standard Features

  • Heavy-duty tempered pump element for long-life
  • Heavy-duty eccentric drive axle bearings
  • Under-pressure and overpressure safety with warning signal
  • Grease reservoir with spring-operated follower plate
  • Low grease and empty reservoir warning
  • Automatic demolition hammer switch-off, to be activated upon request

TriPlus

Specifically developed for special applications such as an independently-operating crane

The Triplus system consists of a single pump with 1 to 3 outputs, on which progressive distribution blocks are mounted. Each output is individually-activated by the control unit. For each output, the interval time and the quantity of grease to be delivered in each cycle can be separately adjusted. The grease delivered to the progressive blocks is spread amongst the lubrication points in a manner determined by the block assembly. For each output, the control unit determines the moment at which lubrication takes place, and monitors the entire process.

Advantages

  • Simple to expand
  • Three independent grease outputs
  • Constant metering irrespective of temperature or viscosity
  • Wide metering variation
  • Simple and rapid installation
  • Diagnostics facility
  • Database

XS Compact Greasing System

Specifically developed for low maintenance equipment

Even modern vehicles with a reduced number of greasing points need extra greasing service between major services. You can eliminate this costly waste of time with XS, Groeneveld's compact greasing system. XS meets the increasing demand for compact greasing systems for low-maintenance trucks, trailers, forklifts and many other applications. Even if greasing is limited to, for instance, just the king pins or the fifth wheel, CompAlube makes automatic greasing profitable.

XS: Cost-saving benefits

  • quick and easy to install
  • Less wear
  • lower grease consumption
  • less downtime
  • quick return on investment

Twin XL

Especially for larger earth-moving equipment, Groeneveld has introduced the Twin-3 XL. A compact automatic greasing system with higher output and an extra-large grease reservoir. The Twin-3 XL is made from solid coated metal and has a capacity of 18 litres or 20 kilos class 2 grease. Twin-3 XL meets the demand of manufacturers and users of earth-moving and construction equipment to add less grease in the period between the machine’s scheduled maintenance activities.

Additional certainty

Twin-3 XL has a built in control unit which controls the operation of the pump and controls and monitors the progress of the greasing process. The system is also characterised by a display in the cabin, which is used to monitor the system operation. Potential error messages are indicated via a letter and number combination.
