Automatic machinery lubricator

The MultiPoint Automatic Lubricator TLMP series introduces a centralized and ready-to-use system for rotating equipment applications across a variety of industries. The system has pluggable outlets; is packaged as a complete kit; and, designed for easy installation and user-friendly programming via keypad with LED display.

The TLMP can supply from one to 18 points on a controlled and timely basis in order to deliver the proper lubrication amount at the required frequency to optimize bearing performance and equipment reliability. Use of the system eliminates the typical challenges and issues associated with manual lubrication, product engineers note, including difficult-to-access points; over- or under-greasing; equipment shutdowns during maintenance; and, potential worker injury during their lubrication routes.

Equipped with lubricator, required tubing, and connectors, the TMLP series features a durable metal housing, generous one-liter reservoir capacity, stirring paddle to prevent grease separation, and cycle control sensor to govern ideal delivery of lubricant. Maximum operating pressure of 120 bar (1,740 psi) can be achieved and the system can perform in temperatures from -13° to 158°F. With a high IP protection rating, the MultiPoint Automatic Lubricator is engineered to resist vibration, withstand repeated equipment wash downs, and prevent ingress of contaminants.

As value-added safeguards, the TLMP system features low-level and malfunction alarms—with notifications even at remote locations—alerting when the reservoir is empty or an outlet blocked. In addition, the system enables machine steering to temporarily disable lubrication by removing power. — SKF USA Inc., Lansdale, Pa., 800/440-4SKF; www.skfusa.com
