Automatic Grease Lubrication System for Backstops.

Marland Clutch recently introduced an automatic grease lubrication system designed to eliminate the need to manually grease the labyrinth seals of Marland BCMA backstops. In many instances, the backstops are located in difficult-to-reach areas making regular grease maintenance very difficult. By installing the new automatic lubrication system, regular grease maintenance is performed, but no longer requires maintenance personnel to be directly involved in this critical daily process. In fact, the large grease capacity of the system allows for six months or more between refills.

The automatic system is designed to provide regularly scheduled injections of the proper volume of grease into the labyrinth seal to maintain a fresh grease barrier that protects the oil seals from outside contaminants and extends seal life. This automated process provides the highest level of protection against external contaminants assuring years of service life.

The system can be linked to Marland's new Smart Marland condition monitoring system for an additional layer of protection.
