Automatic lubrication system simalube in steel works

The severe working conditions in the steel industry are a challenge not only to the operators but also the machines in particular. Heat, dust, vapours and dirt stress the facilities and often bring them to their limits. Among other things, a continuous lubrication of the facilities is crucial to prevent the resulting machine failures.

  • Rough use
  • Temperature fluctuations, risk of damage to the installations
  • High load on the systems
  • High back pressure


  • simalube lubricators
  • Partial special accessories for tight spaces
  • 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
  • Accessories and hose so that the dispensers can be mounted outside hazardous areas

Benefits from automatic lubrication

  • Less downtime of the facilities
  • Reduction of wear and longer service life of the components
  • Increased operational safety since manual lubrication is not required
  • Long-term supply of lubrication points that are heard to reach
  • Less time required for maintenance


Advantages of simalube lubrication systems

  • Reliability: Once installed, the lubrication points are reliably lubricated and never forgotten
  • The hermetically sealed system prevents contamination by dust and debris (IP68)
  • Reduction of service requirements and maintenance costs: Manual lubrication is no longer necessary meaning fewer disruptions and a huge saving of time
  • Longer service life of machines thanks to continuous and accurate lubrication
  • Flexibility: The running time is adjustable from 1–12 months
  • No need to shut down the machines during maintenance
  • Installation is possible even in very narrow spaces
