TITLE
Mechanised greasing system
ARTICLE
Greasing the machinery and equipment was a manual task that required the operative to continually climb up and down a ladder. Using the greasing gun also brought risks of repetitive strain injuries. The problem has been addressed by installing a small compressor onto the back of a wagon, along with pneumatic greasing equipment and an inertia hose reel. Once the lightweight reel has been pulled out and attached to the grease nipple, the compressor will do the rest.
