SKF leads online lubrication innovation with DialSet 7.0

SKF is proud to announce the recent update of its innovative and free-of-charge software programme, DialSet 7.0, to further streamline SKF automatic lubricator set-up. After selecting the criteria and grease appropriate for the application, the new fully updated programme calculates the correct settings for SKF automatic lubricators and pumps. This ensures that the correct lubrication as well as the right quantity is released at the right time. Moreover, it provides a quick tool for re-lubrication intervals and quantity calculations.  SKF DialSet is also able to recommend better and more cost-effective solutions to alternative products.

“Accurate lubrication is fundamental to prolonging the life of bearings, giving rise to high equipment availability, prolonged lifecycle and subsequent plant uptime,” notes Eddie Martens, SKF Product Manager – MaPro. “However, just as important as the lubrication process itself, is the application of the right quantity of lube at the right time.” He also points out the cost implications associated with over-lubrication and the accompanying high grease consumption as well as under-lubrication which can potentially result in equipment failure and subsequent production stoppages.
