In many grease lubricated bearings, periodic regreasing is required. The regreasing interval and quantity are a complex function of speed, operating temperature, shaft diameter etc. Over greasing can result in overheating, causing damage to seals, also sometimes resulting in grease to liquify prematurely Under greasing is a sure recipe for equipment failure. The simple solution is to install a LUBEX spring loaded grease feeder. This grease feeder has to be installed directly over the bearing housing in place of grease nipple. The grease feeder can be installed in any position i.e. straight, 45°, 90° or upside down by using a suitable adaptor.
How does LUBEX grease feeder work?
Fill grease in the grease feeder by a grease gun through a non-return valve (MW) in grease feeder. Grease pushes up the piston against a spring causing the spring to compress. A clear polycarbonate dome allows easy visibility of grease within the dome, also indicates when it is time to re-fill the grease feeder. Since there is no way you can see what is going on inside a bearing, bushing, pillow block, there is only guesswork, LUBEX dispenses right amount at right place all the time. Grease is discharged from LUBEX grease feeder base to the bearing at minimum pressure usually less than 2 psi. The bearing's natural venturi (vacuum) causes the grease to gradually flow into the bearing. This causes the bearing to use grease only as and when required. Grease is not forced or packed into the bearing. When the bearing or equipment stops the grease flow stops.
LUBEX grease feeders have only three moving parts viz. spring, a piston (Plunger) with a precision metering rod and an '0' ring. When grease is filled in the reservoir (Dome) ) the compressed spring exerts balanced pressure on the piston connected to the metering rod. Taper in the groove of the metering rod causes a change in discharge orifice area proportional to the decreasing spring pressure. Thus a constant discharge pressure is maintained. Three types of springs* are available to optimize discharge rate depending on the viscosity of grease ( NLGI 1,2,3,4,) and also to overcome resistance to grease flow depending on distance "L" between grease feeder and bearing. These grease feeders are not suitable for a distance "U' more than 250mm.
LUBEX grease feeder require a non separating grease, since it is our experience that in many conventional greases oil separates out from thickener under a constant spring pressure ER greases work satisfactorily. To fix these grease feeders it may be necessary to use adaptors as shown below. The end connection size needs to be specified.

Drip oilers provide a convenient and economical method of lubricating bush bearings; machine slides etc. The oiler dispenses oil by gravity from a reservoir through a needle valve with a manual shut off. The operator can set the drip rate by simply adjusting a sensitive needle valve and viewing the drip rate in sight glass. Once the drop rate has been set, it should be locked. A suitable locking nut is provided for this purpose. On/off is by means of a toggle pin.
The oil reservoir is made of polycarbonate which facilitates easy visual check of the oil level. polycarbonate also has the advantage of high impact strength, excellent clarity, and good temperature stability. These drip oiler could conveniently replace existing glass type drip oilers which are prone to breakage. The oiler has a fixed thread size of 1/8" bsp. for any other thread size a suitable adaptor is provided.

The use of a brush for chain oiling is the most effective and reliable method for lubricating chains moving at low/medium speeds. As a chain enters and leaves the sprocket there is a relative motion between pin and bushing of the chain. Wear at these points causes elongation decreasing both chain life and efficiency.
By maintaining a film of oil between pin and bushing of the chain, wear can be reduced considerably. Flexible brush follows the contour of the chain applying oil to essential joints. Brush also cleans external dirt, particles etc. The flexible brush is fixed to LUBEX Drip oiler wherein drip rate can be ‘set’ by means of a needle valve. All other features are same as LUBEX Drip oilers.
Each Chain oiler is provided with a bracket to fix them at a convenient place. The ideal position is directly on top or in front of the drive sprocket. We provide two types of brushes. The bristles of the brush are made of special material which retains oil and also resists wear. All bruhes are replacable.
