SKF announced the introduction of its Lincoln mechanical grease overflow prevention system. Designed to prevent hazards associated with reservoir overfilling, this product improves worker safety and minimises environmental concerns caused by this type of spill.
Easy to install and simple to operate, the system reduces the manpower needed for reservoir filling, freeing personnel for other tasks. In addition, the mechanical grease overflow prevention system can be used with a wide range of supply/filling pumps and is compatible with any pump using a FlowMaster reservoir.
Operating mechanically with no electricity required, the system features heavy-duty, all-steel construction with anti-corrosion plating to withstand harsh environments. Its high-pressure system shut-off valves are available in 1/2-inch NPT. The mechanical grease overflow prevention system can be operated with or without a Lincoln grease level sensor, which enables it to be connected to a grease level gauge at the fill station or in the cab. With operating pressures up to 517 bar (7,500 psi), the system offers an operating temperature range of -40 to +65.5 °C (-40 to +150 °F).
The mechanical grease overflow prevention system is suitable for mining, aggregate and industrial applications, as well as for use on off-road construction equipment. Optional components are available for customised installation.
