Abstract
The objective of this investigation was to evaluate central lubrication systems for potential use on underground mining equipment. Previous use on continuous mining equipment resulted in poor system performance because of improper selection of lubricants, component failures, and an inconsistent delivery of lubricant to bearings. The principles and operational characteristics of systems are reviewed and evaluated, and it was concluded that systems are available that can provide a reliable central lubrication if properly applied, installed, and maintained. The procedures for applying a system to a continuous miner are discussed and recommendations are included for the continued development of systems for underground mining equipment.
