TrustLube is among one of the first suppliers to deliver her high-tech system to SBM Offshore for Shell’s Prelude, which was launched in December last year. The TrustLube system was completely engineered and produced at the OudGastel location in The Netherlands.

The system consists of an explosion proof grease cabinet to lubricate the radial wheel, axial boogie and axial boogie guiding of the world’s largest turret. Stainless steel framed grease applicators are used to connect the metering devices to dispense the grease equally on the wheel surfaces. TrustLube’s smart system is able to adapt her greasing cycle to the wind direction.

With the TrustLube system one metering unit per grease point is used. All metering units are working independently of each other regardless temperature, tube length and viscosity of the lubricant. The quantity of grease remains consistent regardless outside temperature and pump running time. The system is completely hermetically sealed. No dirt, seawater or sand can enter the system. The complete system is constructed in stainless steel AISI 316 quality.
