SKF recently introduced a new system of single-point automatic lubricators to deliver the proper preset amount of lubricant needed for bearings in machinery across industries.
The System 24 LAGD Series of lubricators are gas-driven feed versions that are engineered to perform reliably on a 24-hour basis without manual intervention and can resolve issues typically associated with hard-to-access or potentially hazardous lubrication points.
Compared with manual lubrication, the automatic lubricators' continuous and controlled supply of fresh and clean lubricant prevents overheating, waste and seal damage caused by overlubrication while also minimizing the ingress of potentially damaging contaminants and eliminating excessive wear.
Each lubricator features flexible, user-adjustable dispense settings (ranging up to 12 months) and transparent lubricant containers for visual inspection of the dispense rate. A patented gas cell generates the proper pressure to dispense lubricant consistently from containers filled with lubricant specially formulated for the application. Users can also benefit from the DialSet program that determines precise lubricant-dispensing calculations.
LAGD Series lubricators integrate tool-free activation and are available in two sizes (60 and 125 milliliters). Various lubricator accessories, including connectors, brushes and no-return valves (for oil applications), and mounting and protection devices can also be specified.
