|An easy way to fill an auto-greaser
|During an interactive audit, a loading shovel operator pointed out that filling the machine’s auto-greaser was a major task. It required four cartridges to be manually pumped in order to fill the tank. This had to be done twice a week.
This type of greaser was fitted to two other vehicles at the site, whose operatives experienced the same problems.
After discussions with site maintenance staff, it was decided that a mobile greaser would make the task easier. A 12.5kg grease tub and pump was mounted on to a trolley. The unit uses compressed air and is coupled with a quick release mechanism to the plant’s auto greaser reservoir.
