Weir Minerals has announced the global launch of Accumin™ lubricators, following international demand for grease lubrication which has been delivering performance for equipment such as Warman® slurry pumps in APAC.
Across more than 100 sites, the Accumin lubrication system has proven itself an efficient way of preventing expensive bearing assembly failures, reducing maintenance downtime and promoting safety by decreasing the amount of manual interface to keep equipment performing.
“At Weir Minerals, we make the market leading slurry pump for mining applications, but we can’t always control what happens when it gets to site. Between dust, overflow and gland seal leaks, lubrication is a vital tool in the constant battle to keep machinery going. Having an Accumin lubrication system fitted prevents over and under greasing, protects equipment from bearing failures and frees up man hours for more critical tasks,” said Michael Roinich, Accumin Specialist, Weir Minerals.
Made in Germany, Accumin canisters are produced in 125 cm3 gas driven, 120 cm3, 250 cm3 and 500 cm3 electro-mechanically driven configurations and can be deployed up to five metres away from the lubrication point, allowing easy and efficient access to the mount. The electro-mechanical driven lubricator dispenses a consistent dosage of lubricant, regardless of ambient temperature. The system delivers 6 bar of operating pressure and can be easily monitored via an LCD display, flashing LED alert system and a transparent grease cartridge.
