Multi-line Radial Lubricator is a device meant to discharge metered amount of oil grease from different plunger pumps housed in a common body. Each plunger pump delivers oil grease at a high pressure to the lubrication point independently.
Multi-line Radial Lubricator comprises of a single pumping station having a number of pump-element assemblies placed radially and fitted onto the outer periphery of the housing. These pump elements are actuated by a cam which is rotated by a speed reduction drive coupled to an electric motor.
The dose-cycle of the pump-element is adjustable. Thus multiline lubricator can have pump- elements ejecting different dose cycle.
The dose cycle can also be adjusted 'in-situ' by an adjusting screw provided in each pump-element.
Reservoir stores the oil grease. It is provided with a reflector plate which continuously stirs the grease during rotation of cam. For filling grease into the reservoir, a port in the front side of the housing is provided.
The system is meant for continuous running. However, these types of lubricators run intermittently through controller where ON time is a parameter for running the lubricator while OFF time is idle.
