Oil and air lubrication units
Main areas of application are mechanical engineering applications with demanding requirements for a defined lubrication. Lubrication helps to achieve a high degree of efficiency with minimal wear and long life, particularly in relation to tool spindles.
How it works: A flow of air inside a narrow tube teases a droplet of oil apart to form streaks that are then transported to the lubrication point. A nozzle continually supplies the bearing with oil in the form of fine droplets. The transporting air stream is practically oil-free upon leaving the bearing.
Components of an oil+air system:
Oil+air metering unit with built-in piston distributors (injection oiler) - model OLA72 as an example
Compact unit with gear pump and the set of valves required for pressure relief and limitation, with oil pressure switch, float switch and control unit - model OLA02 as an example
- Pressure control valve for air
- Pressure gauge for the air pressure
- Pressure switch for min. air pressure
- Oil streak sensor GS4011 or GS6011
The components can be supplied as a complete unit (model OLA) or individually. Purchasing individual components makes sense if the lubrication system is not going to be installed on the machine as a complete unit (e.g. for reasons of space).
