perma STAR VARIO are lubricating an Electric Motor

Euerdorf, Germany – Electric motors are found in all types of applications – fans, blowers, pumps, conveyors, etc. The importance of the electric motor is usually not recognized until it fails. Optimal lubrication is the key to increase process safety, equipment service life and productivity.

Many electric motors are difficult to lubricate because they are located in hard-to-access and dangerous areas. As a result, many lubrication points on labyrinth seals and on drive- and non-drive sides are not lubricated as often as required, which leads to damaged bearings and eventually equipment failure.

perma-tec offers single- and multi-point lubrication systems and a large range of suitable accessories which ensure safe and continuous electric motor lubrication. Extension lines make it possible to install the systems in easily accessible and safe places. This not only increases workplace safety, but also ensures that electric motors are lubricated according to manufacturer specifications. System exchanges can be carried out without any special tools and can be scheduled to take place during regular maintenance runs. This reduces maintenance time and expenses.

The single-point lubrication system perma NOVA is ideal for the lubrication of electric motors. It is temperature independent (at -20 °C to +60 °C) and the discharged lubricant amount can be programmed to meet individual motor requirements. A precise lubricant discharge during operation prevents lubrication starvation as well as over-lubrication. It reduces lubricant consumption and contributes to environmental protection. The housing is dust-tight and protected against water jets (IP65).

perma NOVA 125 on a blower

Euerdorf, Germany – If you have ever used electrochemical lubrication systems, you know the effect that fluctuating ambient temperatures have on lubricant discharge and discharge period. perma-tec, the leading manufacturer of single-point lubrication systems, was successful in developing the perma NOVA, an electrochemical system which can compensate temperature fluctuations.

Continuous lubrication – even at fluctuating temperatures

perma-tec optimized its electrochemical drive by adding a component which automatically off-sets temperature fluctuations. For operators this means that perma NOVA can be used for applications that require reliable and optimized lubrication especially in areas with considerable temperature variations like in the food industry or in outdoor applications. The innovative control unit allows the user to select and program discharge periods from 1 to 12 months. Selected discharge periods can quickly be changed at any time in order to meet current lubrication requirements.

perma NOVA comes in two sizes (65 cm³ / 125 cm³) and is ideal for the lubrication of electric motors or blowers and fans operating at temperatures ranging from -20 °C to+60 °C and for applications in ex-proof areas. It is extremely easy to use, to install and to exchange. The transparent housing makes it possible to check the fill level at any time.

Optimized maintenance intervals

perma NOVA reduces maintenance costs by minimizing maintenance runs and increasing equipment availability. At the same time it increases workplace safety as it reduces the time that maintenance workers have to spend in dangerous areas. More details on perma NOVA can be found in our product catalog or our website www.perma-tec.com (http://www.perma-tec.com).

perma STAR VARIO Generation 2.0 – Redefines User-friendliness

perma STAR VARIO Generation 2.0 - Redefines User-friendliness

perma STAR VARIO

Euerdorf, Germany – Lubrication plays an important role in maintenance programs. Equipment breakdowns caused by insufficient or incorrect lubrication can have fatal and costly consequences. In some cases they can even stop the entire production. Correct lubrication is therefore a basic requirement for trouble-free operation. The new perma STAR VARIO ensures optimum lubrication regardless of changing temperatures, high counter pressure, or contamination at the lubrication point.

The electromechanical lubrication system was invented 15 years ago and has proven itself in all kinds of industries. The new version offers many improvements: LCD-display with push button control, all around LED lights and a new design.

The LCD-display with push button control is self-explanatory and makes programming extremely simple. The all around LED signal offers visual control of the operating status even from a distance. The system assembles and installs in just minutes. With a pressure build-up of up to 6 bar it works reliably over a wide temperature range from -10 °C to +60 °C.

Fast, easy set up

perma STAR VARIO consists of a transparent LC unit filled with oil or grease, a powerful battery set, and a reusable drive unit. Just insert the battery, screw drive unit and LC unit together, push the button to enter the desired discharge period (1 – 12 months) and LC size (60, 120, 250 cm³) and the system is ready to go.

One lubrication system for all types of applications

perma STAR VARIO is suitable for indoor or outdoor applications with high or low ambient temperatures. The high pressure build-up to 6 bar makes it possible to install perma STAR VARIO at remote locations, away from dangerous areas, with extension tubes up to a length of 5 meters. Not only does this save time when the lubrication system is exchanged, but it also tremendously reduces the risk of workplace accidents. With its three different sizes and many possible settings, perma STAR VARIO is a preferred system for electric motors with very specific relubrication amounts. The all around LED signal light lets you monitor the operational status from a distance. The new design protects the drive unit from water and makes the system better suited for applications in moist and wet surroundings.

Environmentally friendly lubrication

perma STAR VARIO can be individually programmed to exactly meet the lubrication requirements of different applications. The system continuously discharges small lubricant amounts at specified intervals. This lowers lubricant consumption and prevents over-lubrication and lubricant spills. The reusable drive unit reduces maintenance costs and saves valuable resources. We are taking service a step further.

Our extensive perma accessory range includes connecting parts for just about all applications like electric motors, conveyor systems, pumps, fans and blowers. To make your start into perma automatic lubrication easier, we have developed special mounting sets. Our perma SELECT software helps you find the ideal lubrication system and the most suitable lubricant for your application. You can download it free of charge. Our team of lubrication experts will be glad to answer any questions, assist you with challenging applications, or visit you on site.

perma Lubrication Systems for Sewage Treatment Plants

Flyer: perma Lubrication Systems for Sewage Treatment Plants

Euerdorf, Germany – Sewage treatment plants are highly specialized and complex facilities. Important equipment parts like roller- and sliding bearings, chains and spindles are constantly exposed to dirt, water, phosphate and other chemicals. Continuous lubrication can prevent premature equipment wear and breakdowns caused by contamination.
perma Lubrication systems minimize maintenance runs
Regular lubrication increases equipment availability and service life. However, manufacturer recommended lubrication intervals are not always observed due to a lack of time and hard-to-reach or dangerous lubrication points. Equipment failures caused by insufficient or incorrect lubrication will stop the entire treatment process and result in unpleasant smell and costly repairs.
perma Lubrication systems provide reliable automatic lubrication for many applications in sewage treatment plants. They also seal and protect against contamination and moisture. perma Automatic lubrication systems reduce maintenance time and increase workplace safety, as the systems can be installed away from dangerous equipment with extension lines. perma-tec also offers biodegradable lubricants. The lubricant amount and frequency can be adjusted to meet manufacturer recommendations. This reduces lubricant consumption and lubricant contamination caused by over-greasing.
Different lubrication systems for different applications
perma-tec offers different lubrication systems to meet the individual lubrication requirements of chain guide rollers in screening, scrapers in grit and grease removal and clarifier tanks, of impeller wheels at the primary sedimentation tank, of sludge belt conveyors, sludge densifiers and screw presses during the sludge thickening process. perma STAR VARIO and perma FLEX are ideal automatic lubrication systems for applications in sewage treatment plants like roller and sliding bearings, chains and spindles.

perma Lubrication Systems for Conveyors

Title / Flyer: perma Lubrication Systems for Conveyors

Euerdorf, Germany – Conveyors are needed in all types of industries worldwide. They operate in difficult environments like the extreme weather of the quarrying industry or the hygienically sensitive conditions of the food industry. Proper conveyor lubrication is very important, but also presents a challenge for a range of reasons.
Application conditions are normally aggressive due to high levels of contamination and high loads. Long walking distances, ladders and stairs are often needed for the manual lubrication of drive and guide pulleys. Rotating conveyor belts make it difficult and dangerous to manually lubricate the equipment. Manufacturer recommended lubrication intervals can hardly be met. But improper lubrication damages conveyor systems and eventually results in equipment downtime.
perma STAR VARIO is ideal for the lubrication of conveyor systems. It can be programmed to discharge the exact amount of lubricant required by individual lubrication points over a certain period. This prevents over or under lubrication and contamination.
Different applications require different lubrication systems, accessories and special lubricants. The lubrication specialists at perma-tec will help you select the ideal lubricant, the right system and the best accessories to fit your application. perma Automatic lubrication systems help you to prevent costly machine downtimes because they seal conveyor bearings against water and dirt and continuously provide the right lubricant, in the exact amount, at the right time. This results in longer equipment service life and less maintenance. Exchanges can be scheduled and do not require any special tools. Our large range of accessories and extensions makes it easy to lubricate any lubrication point. Hard-to-reach and dangerous lubrication points can easily be lubricated with extension lines. This reduces the time that workers spend in these areas and increases workplace safety.

SIMPEX HYDRAULIK: Automatic ladle milling unit saves time and money

SIMPEX HYDRAULIK: Automatic ladle milling unit saves time and money

The milling unit is placed inside the casting ladle and fixed by three hydraulically actuated clamps

Relining of monolithically lined casting ladles in steel plants: Precise control instead of uncontrolled wrecking

The new vertical ladle milling unit MLC 2011, developed by SIMPEX HYDRAULIK, simplifies the relining of monolithically lined casting ladles, while cutting refractory and waste disposal costs. The automatic process reduces personnel requirements to a minimum.

The mobile vertical ladle milling unit MLC 2011 contains a precisely controllable milling head for the removal of fused refractory material and baked-on slag from the existing monolithic lining on the inside wall of the casting ladle. This is an optimal preparation for the application of the new layer of refractory material.

Before the ladle can be relined, the inside wall must be „white“ in order for the new refractory concrete to properly bond with the remaining refractory layer. This means that there must not be any fused areas or areas with baked-on slag left. At the same time, it is to be avoided that any material still in good condition will be removed.

The new ladle milling unit operates with a precisely controllable milling head. The thickness of the layer to be removed is set according to the degree of fusion. While ladle wrecking by means of manually operated wrecking machines or caterpillars with hydraulic hammers is extremely difficult to control, the new machine removes the worn refractory layer in a perfectly controlled and uniform way.

The entire process takes place automatically. This dramatically reduces the time requirement compared to the previously common manual practice. The operation takes approximately one hour. When the milling has been completed, the inside walls are visually inspected. If necessary, another layer is removed or certain areas are specifically reworked with the milling head operated manually. The system is also suitable for spot repairs in cases where it is not necessary to mill the complete inside wall of the ladle.

The amount of wrecked material is dramatically reduced because the system does not remove more material than necessary. This cuts not only the transportation and disposal costs for the waste material, but also the consumption of refractory concrete. As the material consists of aluminium oxide (AI2O3), it may for example be used as slag forming agents, resulting in a closed and thus eco-friendly system.

Additionally, the ladle milling unit extends the life of the permanent lining. As the ladle is in the upright position during milling, it sits solidly in the ladle cone. Therefore it is subjected only to pressure load. Moreover, there are no impact effects acting on the monolithic or the permanent lining, as would occur during manual wrecking with the ladle in a tilted position. Thus, the ladle milling unit avoids the occurrence of cracks and brittleness.

SIMPEX HYDRAULIK has developed the ladle milling unit in cooperation with Hackenberg Ingenieurgesellschaft. The design phase has been completed. The first prototype will be built shortly.

According to Andreas Berendt, Managing Director of SIMPEX HYDRAULIK GmbH, the system will provide numerous benefits: „The milling unit saves not only material and disposal costs. It also eliminates a great deal of the strenuous and hazardous work taking place in a steel plant.“

The first unit has been designed for casting ladles with filling weights between 80 and 160 t. It consists of the milling equipment proper, a holding frame and a container, which accommodates the hydraulic unit including the tank and the controls.

The equipment is easy to use: A bay crane, which is typically available in any steel plant, lifts the milling unit into the ladle. Three hydraulic cylinders ensure that the unit is perfectly centred and fixed inside the ladle. Here a key advantage of this milling unit becomes obvious: The milling head is always accurately positioned relative to the ladle and it can be moved to any position of the lining – either automatically or manually by remote control.

Milling is performed automatically. It takes approximately one hour to be completed. Afterwards, the milling unit will be lifted into the provided holding frame or into the next ladle to be milled.
