Single-line Lubrication System
consisting of

- Pumps 603S and 653S
- QSL / SL Injectors suitable for high pressure
for the extraction of used lubricant
- SE1 Suction Elements for Used Lubricant


Equipment that operates in harsh conditions requires regular lubrication to ensure performance. When a bearing or component fails as a result of insufficient lubrication the result is downtime and losses. The single-line 603S and 653S pumps automatically supply the lubrication points with exact metered quantities in programmed interval while the equipment is in operation.

As a result, the robust system is ideally suited for wind turbines – even offshore applications – and for off-road mobile equipment such as construction and mining machines and heavy-duty commercial vehicles.

Special Features for Wind Turbine Applications – Also for Off-shore Systems

Lincoln single-line systems completely vent during the pause interval. As a result, they are suitable for fast separating lubricants.

For rotating operation in wind turbines the reservoir is equipped with a follower plate and stirring paddle – which also facilitates the usage of fast separating lubricants.
For stationary operation a stirring and fixed paddle is sufficient.

Pump and Accessories – All-in-one

The pump with integrated controller is easy to install. The all-in-one design of the pump includes the programmable controller, a pressure switch/transducer and a vent valve.

Simple System Design - Easy to Expand

The single-line system’s design and layout is uncomplicated, making it easy to install, program and operate. A single mainline reduces material and installation costs. The 603S/653S pumps can internally combine the lubricant output of up to 3 pump elements. The output performance is 12 cm³/min for the 603S and up to 24 cm³/min for the 653S.

Easy to Service

It is quick and easy to exchange out an injector. The mainline or neighboring injectors do not have to be removed. The exchange can be performed between lubrication cycles so that there is no wastage of lubricant or excessive costly downtime.

QSL and SL Injectors

QSL metering devices are designed for high pressure up to 300 bar, as they have a metal-to-metal fit only. SL-1, SL-32 and SL-33 injectors work at up to 240 bar. As a result, NLGI 2 greases can be pumped at temperatures below zero without problems. All injectors operate independently of each other. This means that in the event of a blockage or fault of one injector, all other injectors will continue to supply lubricant. Each QSL injector has an individual output quantity of 0.05 to 0.4 cm³/stroke.

Visual Monitoring – To Ensure all is Well

Each injector has an indicator pin that moves with the pressure buildup and venting. This facilitates easy trouble-shooting when required by simply observing the indicator pins.

Additional Pressure Switch

An additional pressure switch at the end of larger systems can be used for added pressure control to ensure correct lubrication.

SE1 Suction Element
For the Extraction of Used Lubricant from a Single-line System

The SE1 suction element was especially developed to extract the used lubricant from single-line systems used in wind turbines. The used lubricant is collected in a separate 10 liter container AFB 10 and can be recycled – or used for example for the lubrication of gear drives.

As a result, the problem of used lubricants in bearings is reduced. The lubricant no longer pushes through seals and doesn’t spoil or pollute the bearing environment. Additionally, a re-usage of the lubricant conserves resources and preserves the environment.

PU - Polyurethane Lubrication Pinion for Gear Drive Lubrication

*Even, constantly renewed lubrication film via special surface structure
*Corrosion protection
*Simple installation
*Short service time

The new Lincoln lubrication pinion made from wear-resistant polyurethane, was specially developed for the lubrication of gear drives.

The lubrication pinion applies a 100%, constantly renewed lubrication film to the tooth flank via a special surface structure, thus reducing wear and providing corrosion protection of the gear drive.

An important factor when lubricating is the usage of a suitable lubricant that doesn’t drip under high temperatures. We will gladly supply the results of detailed tests for new lubricants.

The new lubrication pinion applies the lubricant only to the loaded area of the tooth flank and not over the entire tooth or root.
The lubrication pinion can be supplied with lubricant by a Lincoln Quicklub progressive system or a single-line system with comprehensive control options.

Automated Lubrication Systems – Retrofit to your Wind Turbine

Lincoln centralized lubrication systems are used worldwide in wind turbines of all well-known manufacturers. They are established even in the fitment of new wind turbine types.
Lincoln now offers lubrication systems for the retrofit of every wind turbine in OEM quality.
Reduce costs and effort by benefiting from the advantages that Lincoln automated lubrication systems offer:

*Increased profit from greater productivity
*Minimization of costly downtime resulting from lubrication related failures
*Precise metering reduces the use and cost of lubricant
*All lube points are reliably supplied with lubricant

Advantages of Centralized Lubrication
The Path to Cost Reduction

Productivity is key in today’s global economy. Proper lubrication increases uptime and makes maintenance routines simple.

No equipment owner would contemplate running the engine without oil, yet many bearings and pins are operated without sufficient lubrication. Harsh conditions such as water, dirt, dust and mechanical loads cumulatively result in a high wear rate of bearings, pins and swivels. Lubrication is therefore absolutely necessary in order to provide the right protection.

Lincoln lubrication systems are a reliable means of regular lubrication – especially for hard-to-reach points that are difficult or net even possible to lubricate manually.

While the machine is in motion, the lubricant is automatically delivered in time-controlled and metered quantities to all connected points in the system. Lubrication “in motion” ensures that friction points are evenly coated with a lubrication film and that they don’t run dry. This is the ultimate form of lubrication applied in a systematic manner.

Large Savings = Fast Payback

The installation of a centralized lubrication system drastically reduces time-consuming maintenance tasks – and for hard-to-reach points it eliminates accident danger. In addition lubricant consumption is cut as the amount of lubricant is optimally matched to the requirements. Under or over lubrication, which results in dripping of lubricant is a thing of the past.

The life span of wear components is increased. This automatically reduces downtime and operation costs.
