Grease Flow Meters Help Maintenance Crews

Aug 17, 2007
Proper lubrication of machinery across a wide spectrum of industries count on their equipment for continued production. Without proper care of machinery it will break down, causing costly repairs as well as potential other damages. A grease flow meter can insure the proper amount of lubricant is used consistently.

Before the development of grease flow meters, it was usually an educated or experienced guess of how much grease was inserted into a gear or drive or other mechanical equipment. Numerous times too little or too much grease ended up causing equipment failure, which required maintenance crews to repair, and in some cases replace, expensive equipment.

With the introduction of the grease flow meter maintenance can easily be reduce as the correct amount of lubricant can be used consistently, without question. Provided it has been properly and accurately calibrated on a regular basis, you can be assured the system is working properly and doing its job of preventive maintenance.

Lubricant Types Cross All Blends

Most grease flow meters can be calibrated to be used with a variety of lubricants, whether chemical byproducts or organic. Simple calibration techniques allow the user to ensure proper flow and quantity of flow to ensure the correct lubricant levels are maintained.

Another use for a grease flow meter is in tracking you lubricant inventory. For example, you store a lubricant in a 250-gallon container. By tracking use with a flow meter you can reasonably judge how much remains in the container, tracking how much remains and when an order for more lubricant is necessary.

A grease flow meter can also be used if you have a need to mix products. By using the meter you can determine how to adjust the flow to achieve a proper balance in the mixed ingredients. This can help achieve a consistently accurate mix on the end product.

However, the biggest advantage is in the cost to repair savings ratio. While most grease flow meters are not cheap, they will be cheaper than most repairs on equipment, not including down time and lost production. Additionally, they will be extremely less expensive than replacing a piece of improperly lubricated piece of production equipment.

There are numerous manufacturers that can provide a grease flow meter for nearly every industrial need. There should be no trouble finding one to meet your application regardless of the industry in which you are involved.
