n many oil lubricated machines, it is essential to maintain a constant level of oil to properly lubricate machine elements in motion. Excessive oil level increases resistance resulting in higher oil temperature This causes faster aging and breakage of oil seals, which means frequent oil leakages. Low oil level is a sure recipe for equipment failure.
Generally, a constant level of oil is required wherever 'SPLASH' lubrication technique is employed. In this system of lubrication rotating element causes a 'splash' due to its rotation and this splashed lubricant, in turn, lubricates all other machine elements within the system. Splashing would occur if part of the rotating element is in oil and part is above the oil. The right answer is to install an efficient, reliable constant level oiler. 'LUBEX' constant level oiler consists of a polycarbonate (PC) dome with suitable aluminum alloy base and elbow to fit your equipment. PC has the advantage of extraordinary impact strength (virtually unbreakable), excellent clarity, and good temperature range (110 ° c). A lock nut facilitates keeping the oiler upright without an overtightening elbow. The PC dome is threaded and can be cleaned periodically if required. The entire design is totally modular, thus any individual component of the oiler can be replaced at any point of time.
The working principle of 'LUBEX' constant level oiler is extremely simple. As and when oil level falls below level 'x' air passage is opened, you will notice bubbling taking place within PC dome. Oil flows from PC dome into the machine causing the oil level to rise within the machine. The moment oil level in the equipment reaches level 'x' air passage is blocked bubbling stops and oil from PC dome stops going into the machine. Thus oil in PC dome goes on decreasing, but oil within the machine is maintained at a constant level. Oil can be recharged in PC dome at any point of time by simply unscrewing the base and refilling PC dome with an oil can. The product is designed and manufactured to last for several years, an excellent investment for oil lubricated machines requiring a constant level of oil.
