Whether it is for industrial, marine or automotive use, the Isohitech lubrication system provides comprehensive lubrication solutions for any system or machinery, reducing downtime and maintenance costs, and ensuring smooth and reliable operation.
Single line lubrication systems are a type of centralized lubrication system that delivers lubricant to multiple lubrication points through a single supply line. They can be divided into two types – resistance type and injector type. Resistance type systems use a restriction to regulate the lubricant flow, whereas injector type systems use positive displacement injectors for precise flow control. Single line lubrication systems are cost-effective and efficient, making them ideal for applications that require frequent lubrication of multiple points, such as machine tools, conveyors, and packaging equipment.
Dual line lubrication systems are a type of centralized lubrication system that use two supply lines to deliver lubricant to multiple lubrication points. The system alternates the flow of lubricant through the two lines so that while one line is supplying lubricant, the other one is being recharged. This ensures a constant and consistent flow of lubricant to each point, even if there is a blockage or restriction in one line. Dual line lubrication systems are reliable and versatile, making them ideal for applications where high lubricant flow rates and long distances between points are required, such as steel mills, paper mills, and mining equipment. The system is also easy to install and maintain, and provides accurate and precise control over the amount of lubricant delivered to each point.
Progressive blocks are components in a centralized lubrication system that provide lubricant to multiple lubrication points in sequence. The blocks have a series of metering outlets that distribute lubricant to the lubrication points, one at a time, as the lubricant pressure increases. This ensures that each lubrication point receives the correct amount of lubricant, and prevents over-lubrication or under-lubrication. Progressive blocks are used in both single line and dual line lubrication systems, and are particularly useful in applications where precise and accurate lubricant delivery is required, such as machine tools, printing presses, and food processing equipment. The blocks are reliable, easy to install, and require minimal maintenance, making them a popular choice for many industrial applications.
Oil mist lubrication systems are a type of centralized lubrication system that delivers a fine spray or mist of oil to lubricate machinery and equipment. The system uses compressed air to atomize the oil into tiny particles, which are then carried by the air flow to the lubrication points. Oil mist lubrication systems are highly efficient and provide precise and controlled lubrication to the machinery parts, which reduces friction and wear, while also improving performance and extending the life of the equipment. This system is commonly used high speed bearings,opening gear system plant.
Positive injector systems are a type of centralized lubrication system that use positive displacement injectors to deliver precise amounts of lubricant to each lubrication point. The injectors are activated by the lubrication system’s controller to delivery lubricant at predetermined intervals. This ensures accurate and controlled lubrication delivery to each lubrication point, which improves machinery and equipment performance and extends their lifespan. Positive injector systems is required, such as in food processing equipment, textile machinery, and industrial robots. These systems are reliable, require minimal maintenance, and provide better lubricant control compared to other lubrication systems.
