The ILC Lubetool “Micro-Lubrication System” is designed to deliver a precise, minimal quantity of lubricating oil to the point of application via individually adjustable pneumatic pumps.

Features: 

• Simple, Compact and Versatile

• Fully adjustable lube output from 0mm³ – 41mm³

• Pin point accurate lube application

• Micro-misting reduces lube consumption

• Minimal moving parts for increased reliability

• Lubricate up to 16 points per system and up to 30 meters’ distance

Unique Advantages

• Lubricant delivery can be adjusted from 0mm³ to 41mm³, in exact quantities and no guesswork.

• 100% pneumatically controlled, positive displacement pumps.

• Lubricant is carried by air with pinpoint accuracy with hazardous atomising and mist eliminated.

• All pumps and nozzles operate independently from each other, giving complete control.

• Easy lubricant and air flow adjustment.

• The pneumatic timing device (frequency generator) provides easy to use and accurate control.

• A variety of lubricant delivery hose lengths are available and nozzles can be up to 30 metres from the Lubetool reservoir.

• A variety of point of application nozzles provide precise yet highly flexible options.

The Lubetool system is simply the most efficient way to deliver precise amounts of lubricant to the exact location it is needed, without waste but with maximum protection.

How it works

A fully adjustable, positive displacement, metering pneumatic pump delivers a minimal quantity of lubricant along a capillary tube, fitted inside a matched length of air line, to the nozzle head. At this point, the lubricant droplets are introduced into the air stream and are transported to the point of application.

When the compressed air at a pressure of between 5 & 10 bar is applied to the pump, it acts on the top face of the piston, it actuates and a precise (set) amount of lubricant is delivered through the outlet and along the capillary tube. The air is then exhausted, allowing the piston to reseat under spring pressure and the metering chamber refills with lubricant. The pump is now reset for another delivery cycle.

The stroked per minute can be adjusted to between 3 per second out to 1 per minute, via the frequency generator.

The lubricant discharge volume can also be adjusted by means of the manual ratchet adjuster on each pump from 0mm³ to 41mm³ per stroke.
