THE SELF LUBRICATING PLATE

 

The self lubricating plate, also called fifth wheel bearing plate cover, is a covering for the fifth wheel of semi-trailers which prevents greasing of the fifth wheel itself

 

The plastic composite (high density polyethylene) used in the manufacture of the plate has got the best characteristics for loading capacity, pressure coefficient, skidding and duration of the fifth wheel coupling.

 

The design and form have been realised for any type of fifth wheel and, as a result, the plate always adapts perfectly.

 

THE MAIN ADVANTAGES OF THIS SYSTEM ARE:

 

- It improves the manoeuvring capacity of the vehicle.

 

- It guarantees perfect lubrification.

 

- It contributes to lower fuel consumption and less tire wear.

 

- It keeps the fifth wheel coupling free from impurities.

 

The plate, in reducing the use of lubricating grease, reduces the risk of fire due to contact between oil and extremely hot parts (engine, electric brake…)
