Types of Automatic Grease Systems

Automatic grease systems come in a range of sizes and designs to accommodate your vehicles or equipment. Whether you’re using a range of die presses or a fleet of trucks, automatic grease lubricators are available in these basic types:

  • Single-line lubrication
  • Dual-line lubrication
  • Multi-line lubrication
  • Progressive lubrication

A single-line system is the most compact and affordable. These are best for use on vehicles or light equipment that can’t afford excess space. Dual- and multi-line systems are designed for industrial purposes. Grease multiple points at once through a single, efficient control station.

A progressive system features specialized controls to adjust the amount of grease applied to each grease point. This unique option is ideal for minimizing excess grease use and for efficiently lubricating complex equipment.

Each type of system comes in a range of sizes and designs. Some of our automatic lubrication systems use an extensive network of sensors and lubrication points to accurately apply grease to multiple areas. Other systems are basic, compact and affordable. These small-scale lubricators allow you to adjust the amount but only deliver grease to a single point.

Benefits of Choosing Automatic Lubricators

At DropsA USA, we offer automatic grease systems that reduce your maintenance routine. Hassle-free maintenance allows your team to spend more time tackling emergency issues and less time greasing gears. An automatic lubricator also ensures accurate grease application. Some components require a fine-tuned amount of lubrication and excess grease can damage equipment or waste materials. Dial-in your lubrication needs with near-dry machining or an air/oil lubrication system.

Finally, automatic lubrication systems are highly customizable. If you discover that you’re applying too much or too little lubrication, simply adjust the centralized control station. Some systems are equipped with sensors that help you determine the exact amount of grease at each point. Others are more basic and require you to visually inspect each point.

Common Applications for Automatic Lubrication Systems

Whether you’re using a single-line, multi-line or progressive system, our dependable pumps, valves and controllers are adaptable to your specific project. We’re large enough to have the products you need, and small enough to provide the caring customer support that helps us stand out.

Auto Lube Systems for Trucks

Heavy trucks require periodic greasing for continual maintenance. Install one of our automatic grease systems onto your semi truck, cement truck, fire truck or waste hauler for efficient greasing of all the key components. Here are some benefits of an auto lube system for the trucking industry:

  • Easy-to-read reservoir system
  • Adjustable timer in cab for road-side adjustments
  • Customizable lubrication points for any vehicle
  • Rapid delivery of grease for reduced maintenance time

Browse our selection of pumps and controllers, or work with our customer service team to find the ideal solution for your fleet. Whether you’re an owner-operator with a single truck or have an entire fleet of construction and transportation vehicles, an auto lube system is an affordable alternative to manual greasing.

Auto Lube Systems for Excavators

Construction vehicles need the same level of routine maintenance and lubrication to perform their duties. Automatic grease systems replace time-consuming and hazardous manual lubrication on excavators, dump trucks and other construction equipment. Consider these reasons why you should avoid manual excavator lubrication:

  • Difficult-to-reach lubrication points
  • Hazardous work conditions in poor weather
  • Lubrication required in multiple bucket and boom positions
  • Excess lubrication use

Streamlining excavation lubrication keeps your equipment moving for longer, saving you hours a week of productivity. Auto lube systems also promote a safer workplace and can reduce the risk of jobsite injuries.

Automatic Grease System Components

Automatic grease lubricators improve machine reliability through a series of components. As an entire system, your DropsA USA equipment works together to create low-maintenance lubrication. Here are the key components in our full systems.

Lubrication Pumps

The entire system is powered by an electric, hydraulic, pneumatic or mechanical pump. Automatic grease systems use a range of pump sizes and specifications depending on the number of fittings and lines, as well as the type of lubricant. Automatic grease lubrication systems used in trucks and excavators use multiple injectors and a small pump that can be mounted directly on the equipment. Larger industrial machinery may use a larger, stationary pump.

Controllers

Greasing isn’t a continuous lubrication process, so you need a controller to set the frequency and amount of application. State-of-the-art controllers, like the VIP5 Controller, offer pulse, cycle and flow features. A simple menu and easy-to-read screen allow drivers to operate automatic grease systems from inside the cab.

Monitoring Systems

Various sensors and monitoring devices prevent automatic grease systems from over-supplying grease points or leaking grease onto other areas of your equipment. Discuss the best monitoring system for your particular application with our customer service team to help monitor your system.

Valves, Lines and More

In addition to pumps, controllers and monitoring devices, automatic grease systems have a range of valves, lines, sprayers and injectors. These all depend on the type of system you choose.

Single-line lubrication uses a controller and connects the pump to a single sprayer or injector. Most equipment has more than one grease point, so this style of system is rare with this lubrication process. Dual-line lubrication is more common, but still is only capable of applying lubrication to two areas.

Multi-line and progressive grease systems are the most commonly used in trucking, construction and other industries. The primary difference is that multi-line systems may not be able to adjust the amount of grease sent to specific applicators, while a progressive system uses a series of valves to adjust the flow rate to every area of your equipment.
