PurgeX® Infrared Lubrication System
Lubrication reaches the critical pin area of the chain, avoiding areas that do not require lubrication and which contribute to run-off or material build-up. The start and stop points of the lubricating cycle are also controlled by the PurgeX® Infrared Lubrication System, preventing overlapped or missed lubrication areas on the chain.
The PurgeX® Infrared Lubrication System is efficient in both delivery and design. With a supply of compressed shop air and standard electrical current, the unit contains all the components necessary for a quick installation. A 3-way solenoid, PLC, PurgeX® pumps, and 24 VDC power supply are housed in a NEMA 12 enclosure and fed by an integral polycarbonate reservoir available in up to a gallon capacity. The infrared photo sensor is attached by 6 feet of cable.
Inherent to any patented PurgeX® system is reliability. PurgeX® has achieved over 360,000,000 cycles in laboratory tests without appreciable wear and is an engineering breakthrough exclusive to Oil-Rite Corporation.The PurgeX® Infrared Lubrication System is particularly suited to packaging, conveyor, automotive, textile, paper, and food processing industries.
