Automatic lubrication systems in the recycling industry

In recycling factories where lots of dust and dirt is present, regular lubrication is important. Badly lubricated components can be quickly damaged and must then be replaced. This leads to interruptions in production and higher costs.

  • No contamination of the manufactured products due to uncontrolled lubricant leakage during production
  • High humidity, partly high ambient temperatures


  • simalube mostly screwed in directly at the lubrication point.
  • IMPULSE connect: Digital monitoring and configuration of the lubrication points via Bluetooth®. The lubrication points can be monitored from a distance of 20 m. The device can be used to increase the pressure up to 10 bar.

Areas of application and advantages

Areas of application for simalube in recycling plants

  • Conveyor belts
  • Presses
  • Sorters
  • Washing machines
  • Crushers
  • Mills
  • Ventilation fans
  • Winnowing machines
  • Shredders


Advantages of the simalube lubrication system

  • Reduction of service requirements and maintenance costs: because manual lubrication is no longer necessary, less labour is required and time savings are great
  • Shutting down the machines for maintenance is no longer necessary
  • Longer service life of machines thanks to continuous and precise lubrication
  • Flexibility: The running time is adjustable from 1–12 months
  • Only one type of lubricator is needed per application. This reduces storage costs
  • The hermetically sealed system prevents contamination by dust and debris (IP68)
