What Are the Advantages of a Single-Line Parallel Automated Lubrication System?
A single line parallel automated lubrication system is all-around easy. It's easy to design, easy to install, modify, or expand. Because operations typically involve high fluid pressures and offer the option of using grease or oil, its simplicity and cost-effectiveness makes it a popular option.
How does a single-line parallel automated lubrication system work?
in a single-line parallel ALS, the pump pressurizes a main supply line, while a piston inside a primed injector displaces the specified amount of lubricant through an outlet and to its destination.
The pump then turns off, allowing the supply line pressure to be vented back to the reservoir to begin the process of filling with more lubricant and moving on to a new cycle.
What are the advantages of a Single-Line Parallel ALS?
- Easy to design
- Easy and cost effective to install and maintain
- Injectors are individually adjustable
- Classic design
- Proven dependability
What are the disadvantages of a Single-Line Parallel ALS?
- May not be suitable for combinations of heavy lubricants
- Can be finicky toward extremely cold temperatures
- Supply lines running between the pump and the injectors is quite long
