GREASE MAX® is a chemically operated automatic lubricator.
It is designed to be screwed into the bearing grease nipple seating, or onto an extension line, and to feed lubricant at a constant rate for a set period of time. There are 4 operating periods: 1, 3, 6 and 12 months. After the service time has elapsed, the unit is replaced with a new unit. Because it is self regulating it should be used in conjunction with the plant maintenance scheduling. Therefore changeovers of the GREASE MAX® can be planned and carried out at set periods.
GREASE MAX® operation is simple and trouble free. Quite frequently its capabilities are not at first appreciated because of it's simplicity. GREASE MAX® can be used anywhere; on most applications, both large and small, even underwater. Importantly, GREASE MAX® has no electrical or mechanical components and has only one moving part, which is the piston. For this reason GREASE MAX® is extremely reliable.
Discharge time and replacement of GREASE MAX®
Once the quantity of lubricant needed per lubrication point and the average temperature are known, the correct GREASE MAX® unit can be selected from the table below.
|Type 01 White|
|Type 03 Blue|
|Type 06 Red|
|Type 12 Grey|
|Average environmental temp.||Life in months||Grease supply / day grams||Life in months||Grease supply / day grams||Life in months||Grease supply / day grams||Life in months||Grease supply / day grams|
Note: The average environmental temperature is the average temperature that occurs over the whole life of the unit.
Temperature variations above or below 25°C over a short period of time will have little or no affect on the overall life of GREASE MAX®. For example, periods of exceptionally hot or cold days.
The following shaft size can be taken as a guide
|Shaft Size||GREASE MAX® type|
|100 mm - 160 mm||1 mth|
|60 mm - 100 mm||3 mth|
|30 mm - 60 mm||6 mth|
|up to 30 mm||12 mth|
Additionally, the following „rule of thumb“ may prove helpful
In terms of strokes per day from a small hand grease gun, output approx. 0.6cc per stroke, the GREASE MAX® discharge is roughly equivalent to:
|GREASE MAX® type||Strokes per day|
|1 mth||4 - 6|
|3 mth||2 - 3|
