Conveyor lubrication systems
The production of animal feed in Bük, Hungary, uses conveyor belts which carry the food over long distances and multiple stations.
The transport conveyors are subject to harsh conditions such as dust, water, high temperature and frequently will break down. For this the installation of conveyor lubrication systems is required.
Purina selected EuroScale, a partner company of Dropsa, to implement an automatic oil lubrication system.
Approximately 90 conveyors are lubricated automatically at regular intervals divided into 5 different section.
With the Dropsa Smart 2 pump and 33V injectors the production runs with less downtime and wear of plastic chains.
With each lubrication cycle the pump gives a confirmation signal to the control center.Once the oil tank is empty or the lubrication is interrupted, an alarm signal is sent out.
