Brambles Industrial Services have been using LSM Technologies / Vogel Autogreasers for nearly 4 years now. All of BIS Heavy Haulage and Earthmoving Fleet are installed with LSM Technologies Autogreasers. 

Some of the unique applications are the Road Trains consisting of Side Tipper Trailers / Power Trailers and Kenworth C510 8x6 and 6x4 Prime Movers.

With nearly 300 lubrication points for each Road Train, Brambles required a heavy duty design and configuration of Autogreaser to meet the 24/7 operations and arduous operating conditions- whilst providing constant lubrication whilst the vehicles was in operation.

As such the LSM Team provided adaptations to the Autogreasers so as to enhance the operation and longevity of their vehicle bearings, whilst also meeting BIS requirements for low maintenance and speed for refilling of the Autogreaser Lubricant Reservoirs for a quick turn- around.

Some general features of the Autogreaser design were:

  • Fully Electric / Weatherproof Pump Unit- no problems with ingress as with Air- drive systems
  • Enclosed support bracket. 
  • potential to be integrated into Vehicle GPS Monitoring System
  • Double grease filters- one in- built Filter and one quick fill / serviceable Filter.
  • Controller records fault and operating hours.
  • Monitors Pressure Switch for system failure / lubricant empty.
  • 3 kg or 6kg Lubricant Reservoir for extended refilling periods.
  • High pressure / heavy duty hydraulic hose and steel fittings.
  • Many other features.

On the Trailers:

  • Stone Guard fitted to protect components.
  • IP65 Controller Enclosure.
  • All Duetche Connectors with ADR Intrinsic Conduit.
  • External Push button for Resetting Alarms, Testing Autogreasers and Manual Cycling.
  • External “Daylight” LEDS for indicating- Fuse / Power Failure, Pump / Pressure Switch Failure, All Okay.

Truck Controller / Warning System:

  • Warning light illuminates to indicate System voltage okay during start- up.
  • Warn for System Fault and Lubricant Reservoir empty.
  • Push button for alarm reset and manual lubrication cycle.
