New lubrication

18 March 2008

Reynolds Scrapers, which are distributed throughout Germany and Europe by DBH Baumaschinen Handel, are being fitted with a new lubrication system.

The Lincoln HTL 101 lubrication system supplies the correct amount of lubricant while the scraper is in operation a spokesman for Lincoln said. He added a traditional lubrication by hand provides insufficient protection.

“Often the intervals between maintenance are too long, and hard–to–reach points are lubricated with difficulty or even overseen,” he said. In the case of insufficient lubrication, dirt and water quickly penetrate into the bearings and bushings of lift arms, chassis points, excavator buckets, ejectors and towing eyes.

“That leads to increased friction and premature wear and can end with a machine stop – possibly in the hot phase just before the completion of a project,” he added.

A further advantage of the centralised lubrication system is the reduced expenditure for time-consuming maintenance work, the spokesman added.

The HTL–101 is driven directly by the operating hydraulics of the machine and lubricates continuously with a small, adjustable quantity of grease during the machine's operation.

“An additional drive, electrical connection or an additional control valve are therefore redundant,” the spokesman said.
