equipment maintenanceRing Power’s extensive equipment maintenance experience has shown that contamination control equals quality control. Advanced Maintenance Solutions enhances the customer’s ability to control and monitor both. To help customers reduce contamination and other problems associated with poor maintenance, Ring Power is bringing Advanced Maintenance Solutions to machines on the jobsite with a fleet of mobile service vehicles, staffed by trained technicians and fully equipped to handle any repair or installation associated with these new services.

Used individually, each of these service options offers benefits that can help streamline preventive maintenance and reduce owning and operating costs. Used in combination, these services create a new level of automatic machine maintenance and monitoring, simplifying routine preventive maintenance and extending machine life.

Lincoln Quicklub®

The daily lubrication of a machine can be difficult due to a number of variables ranging from weather to production demands. Improper lubrication of bearings can lead to contamination, which wears down the components, resulting in downtime and expenditures for replacement parts or wasted grease from over-lubricating.

Automatic LubricationLincoln Quicklubautomatically lubricates the external points of the machine. Through Lincoln’s unique system, small, measured amounts of grease are automatically delivered to each bearing at specific time intervals while equipment is operating. This method produces a grease seal around each pin and bushing, creating a barrier to keep contaminants out while ensuring the machine is never over-lubricated. In fact, the system uses less grease than it takes to manually lubricate a machine with a grease gun.

Quicklub combines a pump with an adjustable integrated controller, lubricant measuring valve, supply/feed line hoses and connection fittings. When triggered by the timer, the pump starts to dispense lubricant to the primary divider valve, which then distributes the lubricant to the secondary valves. The secondary valves dispense the correct amount of lubricant to each lubrication point. The system can be set to run for a preset time or to shut off after receiving a signal from a proximity switch.

QuickEvac

Protection from the Start. Lubrication is the lifeblood of diesel engines, especially for today’s high-performance, fast-starting models. The QuickEvac system delivers up to 40 gallons of oil per minute, eliminating dry-start wear by ensuring full oil pressure from turbo to crankshaft. Every time the engine starts, QuickEvac prelubricates the complete engine and all oil passages automatically, safely and rapidly before cranking can begin.

Contamination Control. Tighter tolerances, higher pressures and computerized controls on today’s high-performance diesel engines demand cleaner fluids for optimal performance and life. Even small improvements in contamination control are yielding big results in engine and component life. The QuickEvac system automatically filters new oil, before it enters the engine. It also pre-fills new oil filters automatically, safely and correctly, eliminating the need to fill them by hand.

Environmentally Friendly. Tougher environmental regulations and heavy fines demand greater care in handling, transferring and properly disposing of oil. QuickEvac offers foolproof, spill-proof protection. Leak-free quick couplers with direct draining to final containment eliminate leaks and spills, keeping service technicians, the workplace and the environment cleaner and safer.

Product Link™ Product Link

With Product Link you can gather information about your machines from any place at any time. This allows you to optimize asset utilization, reduce security risk, and improve maintenance management.

Product Link comes in two different models. The first is the PL121SR, which provides GPS location and operating hours. It is also capable of automatically alerting you when machines operate beyond owner-identified time or location limits. The second model, or PL321SR, tracks GPS location and operating hours just like the first model, plus it can provide machine health information (to troubleshoot repair issues before they become a problem), indicate fuel level and consumption, and provide condition-based event data, diagnostic reports, and/or alerts.

Putting It All Together

Equipment owners and operators who take advantage of Ring Power’s Advanced Maintenance Solutions can effectively eliminate downtime caused by lubrication-related component failures. In addition, you will gain productive time each day by eliminating shutdown for manual lubrication, and you will avoid costly repairs so your time can be better utilized. Even routine operations, such as changing buckets and attachments, are simplified because the couplings are well lubricated and easier to move.

The ROI is fairly substantial, too. You’ll continue to save money year after year, and the resale value of your equipment will also increase! For more information about Advanced Maintenance Solutions, contact a service representative at the Ring Power location nearest you:
