System 24 LAGD Series single-point automatic lubricators are “hands-off” solutions that deliver the proper pre-set amount of lubricant needed for bearings in machinery across industries. The gas-driven feed versions 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. Ultimately, they optimize the accuracy, reliability, and cleanliness of lubricant delivery, product engineers contend, contributing to increased uptime of assets, reduced maintenance, and favorable environmental impact.
