SP / SMB13

Flow limiter for use in oil circulating lubrication systems

SP / SMB13
SP / SMB13

The SMB 13 flow limiter is designed to divide the main line flow into parallel, individual, volumetric flow quantities and to “limit” these according to requirements. The flow is generated independently of system pressure and virtually independently of viscosity, guaranteeing a constant flow. 

The SMB 13 provides a flow rate from 6 to 38 l/min (12.6–80.3 pts/min) and a pressure range up to 50 bar (725 psi). The flow limiter has a built-in, gear-wheel-type flow indicator for electronic and visual monitoring of oil flow. Every rotation creates a signal offering information about the flow rate. The SMB 13 can be used in combination with the IPM 12.

Features and benefits

  • Stable system regardless of pressure, temperature or viscosity changes
  • Visual and electronic monitoring with real flow indication
  • Easy start-up with fixed flow rate via pre-selected nozzle sizes
  • Adaptation of flow rate possible (nozzle exchange)
  • Optional ATEX version for Ex II 2G c TX Gb, Ex II 2D c TX Db
