SKF has developed an hydraulic lubrication pump specifically for use with hydraulic hammers. The HS04 hydraulically operated pump is robust enough for even the most aggressive environments and is quick and simple to maintain, keeping operating costs down.
The pump automatically dispenses the optimum amount of lubricant to the hammer as it is required. The pump can be fitted to the hammer to provide effective lubrication even if the tool is uncoupled and moved from one machine to another and the delivery rate can be adjusted using a flow restrictor on the unit to meet the requirements of any application. The pump also features a manual lubricating nipple for emergency lubrication in the event of hydraulic circuit failure.
The rugged construction and design with few parts means little maintenance is required. The pump operates effectively at low temperatures and under water making it ideal for use with hydraulic hammers in hostile operating environments.
By incorporating a dedicated lubrication pump for hydraulic hammers a fit-for-purpose lubricant can be used to increase machinery performance and uptime. SKF has also developed a paste that can absorb high pressures, offers good corrosion protection and reduces wear thus enabling hydraulic hammers to deliver long, low maintenance operating performance.
