SKF has launched the latest addition to its proven SYSTEM 24 range of automatic lubrication solutions, enabling users to correctly, regularly and cost effectively lubricate components such as bearings. The new LAGE series features electromechanical single point lubricators that offer a simple and flexible solution to a wide variety of lubrication requirements, optimizing the performance and reliability of industrial equipment.
The LAGE Series lubricators consist of a drive unit, battery pack, and a lubricant canister with support flange. When activated, a piston dispenses the lubricant at up to 5 bar, ensuring equipment receives the correct amount of lubrication at the proper intervals: either 1, 3, 6, 9, or 12 months. The oil or grease can be applied either directly onto the component requiring lubrication, or through a tube that enables remote mounting and flexible installation.
In addition to automating lubrication requirements and reducing maintenance costs, the reusable LAGE Series lubricators minimise the environmental impact of lubrication, with purpose designed refills available, consisting of an SKF lubricant canister and replacement battery pack. As the dispense rate of the lubricators is unaffected by temperature, the units can be used in a wide range of demanding industrial environments.
Supplied ready to use, the LAGE Series lubricators are extremely easy to install and activate, with no special training required, keeping costs down. Programming the units to meet the specific requirements of an application is also simple, using SKF DialSet Version 4.0 software, which is now available in a wide variety of languages.
