Groeneveld Lubrication Solutions at Busworld Kortrijk 2015
Groeneveld Lubrication Solutions will show its products and solutions for bus and coach companies at Busworld Kortrijk from 16 -21 October in hall 4, stand number 415. From the Groeneveld Oilmaster, an advanced oil management system to the high-end automatic lubrication systems, used by many bus and coach companies around the world to achieve higher fleet efficiency. Groeneveld products are applied all over the world in the aftermarket and for ex-factory option by leading bus and coach manufacturers. Therefore the Groeneveld products can be found at a lot of buses at Busworld.
Oilmaster and modern engines
Although modern combustion engines do not use much engine oil, daily oil checks are still required. However, the few minutes available for cleaning, refuelling and daily checks when public transport buses enter the depot, simply do not allow for a proper oil level check. This explains the ever growing global demand for the Groeneveld Oilmaster oil management system, specified by many public transport operators all over the world and supplied ex-factory by leading OEM’s. The Groeneveld Oilmaster avoids manual oil level checks and topping-up engine oil, while also registering oil consumption in the electronic control unit, allowing for preventative maintenance.
CompAlube for modern buses and coaches
In addition to the advanced oil management system, at Kortrijk Groeneveld shows its range of automatic lubrication systems for bus applications, including the CompAlube, dedicated for modern buses and coaches with only a few greasing points.
A common application for CompAlube is the automatic greasing of the independent suspension. The system is extremely compact, as the grease reservoir, pump, electronic control unit and metering units have been integrated into one unit.
This makes the lubrication system easy to install and guarantees optimum operational reliability. The CompAlube makes use of specifically developed Greenlube EP-0-grease in simple and easy exchangeable grease cartridges with a capacity of 1.8 litre. For more complex installations, such as articulated buses with more greasing points, Groeneveld offers other class-leading automatic greasing systems, such as TriPlus, SingleLine and the unique Twin dual line greasing system.
Greensight safety support systems
Another popular product is Greensight, an active ultrasonic safety device - that can be enhanced with Groeneveld’s high-end camera system – which significantly increases the safety. Greensight provides the driver with accurate and reliable information about the free space behind the bus or coach. Via ultrasonic technology, sensors detect obstacles up to nine meters behind the bus or coach. The space behind the bus or coach can be divided into three pre-set zones, all with their own acoustic and visual signal. These signals are transferred to the Groeneveld display or screen (in case a camera system is mounted) or via the CAN-bus connection of the vehicle. Up to four cameras can be connected to the system.
