Our mission at Interflon is to save businesses money on maintenance, repair and replacement, and time. We partnered with Simatec to become distributors of their Simalube automatic lubrication dispensing system for this very reason… because our missions are the same. If your business relies on lubrication to keep things moving, then you should be using an automatic lubrication dispensing system. And there is no better name in the business than Simalube!
Benefits of using Simalube
Automatic lubrication dispensers are a simple but brilliant way for companies to:
- promote worker safety
- enhance productivity
- ensure that they are sticking to their maintenance regimen.
If you can do all that, and save time and money into the bargain, then there is really no reason why you shouldn’t be using a SimaLube dispense from Simatec.

Worker safety is the most important reason to install Simalube dispensers. Rooftop heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems are a perfect example of this.
HVACs are often located on rooftops. Sending workers to the roof on a regular basis to lubricate them is dangerous for many reasons: slippery ladders, high winds, airborne particles, and extreme temperatures in deep winter or the dog days of summer. The solution is to install a Simalube dispenser on those hard-to-reach places, so that maintenance visits can be cut down to once every six months, or even a whole year.
Simalube systems can be calibrated to dispense lubricant automatically, up to a year in advance. A whole year of reduced employee injury is a benefit worth noting.
But there are other safety-related reasons to use Simalube, too. Paperwork is a big one: if employees have to face less on-the-job hazards, that means less mandatory training, less certification, and less bureaucracy to be dealt with.
Workplace accidents aren’t just hard on the victim. They represent difficulties for the employer, too. They may mean higher levels of employee dissatisfaction or lower morale, enhanced scrutiny from safety inspectors, or higher insurance premiums. It would be far easier to avoid all of that.
With a Simalube system in place, you don’t have to worry about any of these concerns. Just install it and forget it until it’s time to refill the dispenser.
Where to use Simalube

There is another very good reason to install a Simalube dispenser, too: cost savings. Simalube’s set-it-and-forget-it features mean that you can be sure the correct amount of lubricant will be dispensed every month, no more and no less, automatically. Lubrication is essential to keeping your equipment in good working order, and a proper lubrication regime can save you tens of thousands per year in maintenance and replacement costs.

Installation and Use
Simalube is a single point lubricator. To install, simply remove the grease nipple and screw the applicator in the place of it. One of the major benefits of Simalube is the low risk of contamination. Foreign particles don’t have a chance to stick to the grease.
The mechanism is driven by a cartridge that releases gas to create the pressure to move the grease. This is much more reliable than battery-based systems.
This video illustrates many of the benefits above, and also shows just how easy it is to install Simalube.
