IMPROVE FLEET RELIABILITY
with SKF and Lincoln automatic lubrication systems
A complete portfolio of lubrication solutions
to improve system reliability Automatic lubrication systems Vibration, high mechanical loads, contamination and moisture are all threats to bearing and gear service life. Like any mechanical system, moving parts in engines, gear boxes, propeller shafts, steering gears, winch drives, deck cranes or other auxiliary equipment require proper lubrication to function optimally. SKF and Lincoln automatic lubrication systems deliver the exact quantity of the appropriate lubricant to the right place at the right time while the equipment is running – without downtime. Drawing upon their comprehensive knowledge of tribology and industrial demands, our engineers and technicians have developed highly efficient lubrication systems for marine applications. SKF also can assist you in optimizing lubrication settings and intervals, and in developing a customized lubrication programme.
Solutions for challenging applications
SKF lubrication products are available for any type of vessel. In fact, many lubrication applications on a ship can be completed more efficiently and safely with SKF and Lincoln lubrication systems.
SKF provides product solutions for the proper lubrication of propeller shaft bearings and steering gears, as well as winch drives, ropes and cables. In addition, grease and oil spraying systems are available for jacking systems and open gears.
Oil is the lubricant of choice for heavy-loaded bearings in gear boxes or stern tube seals. It lubricates and cools the lubrication points and removes contaminants from the oil cycle.
SKF also offers efficient lubrication solutions for diesel engines that help to reduce cylinder lubricant consumption. Class-approved and ATEX- or ICE-certified products for all applications are available upon request.
