SKF devices provide simple, automatic lubrication

Written by: Laura Hopperton | Published:

SKF has introduced a new family of electromechanical automatic lubricators.

The devices in the TLSD range are simple to fit and are suitable for a range of lubrication applications, including pumps, fans, blowers, conveyors escalators and cranes.

According to SKF, they are especially suitable for use in applications with high levels of vibration or fluctuating operating temperatures; a special version is also available for use in cold temperatures.

The TLSD is a stand-alone device, consisting of a lubricant reservoir and a battery powered unit that can be programmed to dispense lubricant in various monthly settings. Connection to each machine is via either a direct mount or a feed line, each terminating with a standard G1/4 thread.

The reservoir can be supplied in two sizes (125 and 250ml), filled with SKF specified high performance oils or greases. Maximum operating pressure is 5bar.

The drive unit uses a simple rotary switch, protected by a clear plastic cap, enabling the TLSD to be programmed to dispense lubricant in intervals of choice. Additionally, a green-amber-red traffic light LED display, visible from all angles, clearly shows the operating status of the device.
