Lincoln filter helps prevent contaminants from entering automatic lubrication systems
SKF have unveiled their new Lincoln small grease reservoir filling filter, which has been designed to help prevent contaminants from entering automatic lubrication systems during the filling of smaller-sized reservoirs.
Installed as an inline component in the reservoir’s fill line, the filling filter helps to ensure that clean grease enters the reservoir and the system. As grease enters through the inlet, it passes through the filter and then exits into a hose connected to the grease reservoir’s fill port.
As the filter element becomes clogged, the unit’s clog indicator pin starts to retract, signalling that filter element cleaning is required. If the clogged filter element is not cleaned, grease will vent safely to a catch container but will not bypass to the reservoir.
The easy-to-install Lincoln small grease reservoir filling filter is available with either a 250- or 500-micron crush-proof filter element, which is simple to clean. It has a fill rate of up to 8 litres/min and an operating pressure of around 344 bar (5,000 psi).
The filter is suitable for use in a number of applications, including construction equipment and smaller mining/quarrying equipment.
