Pumping it up: SKF launches newly designed Electric Compact Pump with re-fillable plastic reservoir
2018 September 20, 09:00 GMT
SKF today announced the update of its Electric Compact Pump (ECP) for single-line lubrication systems. Originally introduced in 2016, the ECP pump is now available with both plastic reservoirs for easy refilling processes and prefilled cartridges.
The ECP is designed to lubricate bearings and linear guides with oil or fluid grease in systems of up to 20 lubrication points and a main line length of 15 meters. It includes an integrated pressure-relief valve, which enables its use in automatic SKF single-line lubrication systems. The ECP is available with prefilled lubricant cartridges or with plastic reservoirs for oil or fluid grease in three sizes. Oil reservoirs come with standard filters. The pump versions with reservoir capacities of 1,0 and 1,7 litres can be equipped with a fill-level monitor.
To eliminate the risk of lubricant contamination, SKF recommends the ECP version that utilizes the 380 ml cartridges. These easy-to-exchange cartridges are available with an optional, integrated level switch to monitor the fill level. The standard cartridge is pre-filled with fluid grease type 00.
Setting new standards in design and flexibility the ECP is a cost-effective and simple-to-operate lubrication solution that works perfectly together with SKF single-line metering devices in small to medium-sized machinery.
Combining more than 100 years of SKF and Lincoln expertise, SKF offers the industry’s most complete portfolio of innovative lubrication solutions – from manual lubricators and tools, to the most advanced centralized and automatic lubrication systems.
