T-MON Spraying system
The spraying lubrication is used where lubricating greases, lubricating oils or even adhesive lubricants need to be applied in an even, metered and selective manner due to user-specific and function-related requirements.
The spraying lubrication allows reductions of up to 50% in the quantities consumed, which is significantly beneficial in terms of the disposal of lubricant and the associated costs. In particular this lubrication system is used in the area of heavy-duty gearing (e.g. drives for rotary kilns, cement mills, coal mills, mixing drums etc.).
With the spraying lubrication systems the lubricant is applied selectively and in metered quantities onto surfaces (e.g. teeth flanks) in order to ensure reliable lubrication.
The frequency of lubrication is based on defined intervals in most cases, in particular alternating intervals during the running-in phase and continuous operation phases, for heavy-duty gearing. The mechanical construction of the spraying lubrication system and the freely programmable electrical control satisfy these requirements. We refer to these as “pulse lubrication systems”.
The continuous spraying-on of a quantity of lubricant suited to the operating conditions would be ideal in particular for heavy-duty gearing drives. However, this is not possible because of the mechanical sequence in the spraying lubrication systems. Furthermore, the constantly flowing compressed air, which distributes the lubricant through spray nozzles onto the teeth flanks, considerably increases operating costs.
Accordingly pulse lubrication systems have proved successful for years without the need to consider any compromise.
