AUTO LUBE SYSTEMS - CONSTRUCTION, MINING, PAVING & MORE

Designed for extreme weather conditions and severe job requirements often faced in Canada, the completely reliable and fully automatic FLO Lubrication System will increase your component life and overall productivity. The system dispenses small measured amounts of grease at frequent intervals while your equipment is operating, maintaining a consistent lubricant seal to prevent dirt and contaminants from migrating into bearings. It will help keep your equipment out on the job and reduce your labor costs when compared to the traditional method of point-by-point manual greasing.

Increases life of critical wear points = Protect your investment. 

Less unplanned downtime = Increase profits.  

Reduces operator involvement = Keep them focused on their primary job.   

Improves safety = No climbing over and under equipment to lubricate. 

Fewer replacement parts to stock = Lower operating costs.   

Increases resale value of equipment   

“For off-road applications, a typical FLO installed system consists of a 12/24 VDC Lincoln Series 203 pump, positive displacement grease metering valves, fittings, tubing, hose and custom guarding for heavy equipment. Pumps include an integrated adjustable timer for trouble-free operation and maximum flexibility. Reservoirs range from 5 to 15 pounds. This system is suitable for most off-the-shelf North American greases currently in your shop. It will handle lubricants up to an NLGI #2 rating to -25°C or -13°F.

AUTO LUBE SYSTEMS - ONROAD APPLICATIONS

For on road applications, a typical FLO solution is an SKF MonoFlex single-line system, consisting of a gear pump and reservoir available in 2.7 Litre (6 lb.) and 6 Litre (13 lb.) sizes, external control unit and parallel type piston distributors. The timer-controlled pump supplies fluid grease to the distributor blocks via the main line when the pump is in operation. At the end of the pump run-time, the pressure relief valve opens and the spring-loaded pistons in the distributors discharge independently of each other, precisely measured amounts of lubricant from the metering chambers to the lubrication points. This system operates with any fluid grease NLGI #000 to 00 that meets system specifications, down to -25 °C or -13 °F.
