Pöttinger offers a compact and professional central lubrication system for its high-performance JUMBO and JUMBO combiline. In cooperation with Kreuzhuber a retrofit solution has been developed for hydro-pneumatic Tandem and Tridem chassis.
A total of 30 lubrication points on tandem axles and 50 lubrication points on tridem axles are grouped together on each axle at a progressive lubrication distributor which is supplied through a lube line routed out to an accessible position on the lower edge of the wagon beam.
In practice each lube nipple takes around 1 minute.
Customer benefits and performance features Taking a Tridem chassis with 50 lubrication points as an example, the time taken is reduced by 45 min. If the vehicle is lubricated once per week and approx. 10 weeks per year, depending on operating time, this adds up to a saving in maintenance time of around 8 hours per year. This advantage has a positive effect on utilization as well.
