Common Applications of Metering Cartridges in Various Industries

by Crazzy Paul Digital Markting Professional
Metering Cartridge is an essential element that controls the amount of oil at each lubrication point in a single shot centralized system of lubrication. At least one cartridge is required at each point of lubrication. It is a kind of a mini cylinder that has a check valve, where the amount of ejected oil is determined by the stroke of the piston. Every time, whenever the pump is operated, it ejects out some predetermined amount of the oil. The cartridge gets recharged on releasing the pressure. A minimum time gap of 1 minute is required between subsequent operations in order to recharge the cartridges properly.

Some of the areas of applications of cartridges are as follows:

Cement Industries:

Cement industries are one of the core sectors that require automated greasing to reduce the wastage and unnecessary breakdown of the machineries. Cartridges pave the way of 100% greasing.

Vehicle Lubrication:

The suppliers and exporters of the cartridges design the greasing systems in such a way keeping in mind the toughest conditions on and off the road that your vehicle equipment go through all throughout the year. These robust lubrication systems have the capabilities to work even in the toughest of the conditions. Low maintenance cost, high reliability, and environment-friendly features are what these cartridges offer. 

Construction Industries:

Manual handling of the lubrication increases the overall cost of lubrication as manual handling can cause contamination of the lubricants and using these contaminated lubricants in machinery can cause damage and wear and tear and early breakdown of the machinery. Using cartridges can prevent wastage of the lubricants, as well as even the inaccessible parts, can be covered at a single shot. It also helps in reducing the cost of labor as in conventional point-to-point manual lubrication.

Sugar Mills:

The cartridges have been in great use in sugar mills for years now. It provides a cost-effective as well as an eco-friendly method of lubrication with a trouble-free operation and the minimum break-down time.

Steel plants:

Steel plants are the core sectors where automatic greasing is required without any interruptions what so ever. Manual lubrication has no scope in steel industries, even though it can still be used in small-scale industries but to a big industry, it is a strict no-no. The metering cartridge manufacturers should look into certain specifications like the 40kg/cm2 is the maximum pressure permissible, whereas the working pressure needs to be 8kg/cm2 and between subsequent operations, the pressure needs to drop below 1kg/cm2 every time.

Thus for a 100% greasing, more reliability, less wear, and tear, less wastage and contamination, increased profitability and up-time, lower cost of maintenance and more eco-friendly ways of lubrication, resorting to metering cartridges would be the wisest decision.
