A screw feeder (double-humped, with an intermediate bearing) that sends raw sugar in the sugar washing process at a sugar refinery. Up to now, grease-up had been performed manually but the lubrication was frequently forgotten, and the bearings had to be replaced every six months to 1 year at the most.
This process is directly related to problems that often occurred due to forgotten or insufficient lubrication because lubrication was carried out by manpower. Also, the quality of the grease used would not withstand the moist atmosphere.
Eliminate under-lubrication by automating lubrication with high performance grease to reduce the frequency of bearing replacement/maintenance.
Target: 1 year of no maintenance
