About Masterlube

Masterlube is a worldwide distributor of specialist grease and oil automatic lubrication systems, since 1976.

Masterlube are a specialist manufacturer of grease and oil lubrication systems for use in tough environments. Masterlube supply many of the world's top agricultural field equipment, mobile plant and heavy machine manufacturers, exporting to 20 countries.

Many operators spend large amounts of money each year on bearing and chain replacement, plus have to deal with a significant loss of production due to out of service machinery. Hostile working conditions and neglect of regular maintenance can be responsible for frequent breakdowns, lost production time and costly repair bills.


Why use an automated lubrication system?

Anything which has a bush, bearing or gear; or for any component which rotates or slides, these require lubrication. While manual lubrication is still preferential in many applications, the use of an automated lubrication system is becoming the preferred alternative to minimise downtime, improve quality, reduce cost and improve safety for companies around the world.

  • Reduce Downtime.
  • Improve Productivity.
  • Increase Profits.
  • Create a Safer Working Environment.



Masterlube automated lubrication systems are able to provide continuous or regulated lubrication to any piece of equipment, component or system. Manual lubrication requires a person to manually apply a grease gun to every point during maintenance.


This has multiple benefits:

• Reduce the time interval between lubricant applications, which prolongs life.

• Saves a significant amount of time required for maintainance, especially for systems with large number of ports or access points. This allows the operator more time for other things and increases the time in service for a piece of equipment, increasing its profitability.

• Automated lubrication systems can be used in systems which are hard to access or pose a potential safety concern, such as onshore / offshore wind turbines.

• Automated lubrication prevents too much grease entering a system. Too much grease can increase the torque required to rotate the component, reducing efficiency in the bearing, gear or motor.

• Automated lubrication prevents the potential for loss of lubrication in the contact. Loss of lubrication can cause significant damage to a component (or part within a wider system) which can be critical to wider business operations. An automated lubrication is essential for reliable and optimal performance, whilst also reducing unexpected call-out charges due to failure.

• Automated lubrication systems also reduce the amount of waste grease, therefore reducing cost and also the effect on the environment.
