Easy Grease Lubrication Systems

Springer Controls specializes in bringing innovative products and services tailored to the demanding needs of the wind turbine power industry. One of the most critical considerations in any rotating mass is lubrication; providing adequate lubrication requires the consideration of many factors. Advanced lubrication systems must address issues such as consistency, contamination, quantity, system operation and downtime. The failure of any one of these factors can result in reduced up time, unbudgeted costs, and severe equipment damage.

Many wind power generation applications utilize manual, battery operated lubrication systems. Though state of the art when initially installed, they are inherently unreliable and inconsistent compared with modern automated systems.

To address this need, Springer Control provides the Hove Easy Grease system. This fully automated solution is the system of choice for all major wind turbine OEMs. Because it’s a closed system, grease contamination is non-existent, delivering precise amounts of lubricant at the required intervals with only one to two service visits per year. This patented pump and cartridge system has been proven to save 40 to 50% in lube time, and requires only a single technician to operate.

A key factor in the success of these systems is superior support provided by Springer. Springer not only provides the units, they also service and provide maintenance for these pump systems. The Springer Wind team is equipped to meet your operational objectives, maintenance schedule, and provide cartridges loaded with grease from manufactures such as Shell, Castrol, Mobil, Kluber, Petro-Canada, and SKF. Regardless of lubricant type, all cartridges are filled at Springer’s facility; this in-house capability is backed up by a commitment to quality, and numerous lube manufacturer audits.
