Lubrication delivery was in the spotlight at the annual SKF Technical Press Day (Monday, June 13) in Philadelphia. The company’s Battery-Driven Grease Gun (TLGB 20), one of several new and notable products rolled out at this year’s event, offers a portable solution for maximizing the efficiency and accuracy in the manual lubrication of bearings, machines, and off-road equipment throughout industry.
The device’s integrated grease meter adds value by dispensing the proper amount of lubricant for an application to prevent over- or under-greasing.
A rechargeable 20-volt lithium battery delivers extended service life to enable timely manual lubrication of equipment anywhere and anytime in a manufacturing plant or in the field.
User-friendly features include a durable, ergonomic design with a three-point stand for operator comfort and convenience. A built-in light serves to illuminate the work area and a display on the tool indicates battery charge level, amount of dispensed grease, pump/motor speed, and blocked lubrication points.
This versatile unit can dispense up to 15 grease cartridges per battery charge and delivers two flow rates adjustable for a specific application. Pressures up to 700 bar (10,000 psi) can be achieved.
Th TLGB20 grease gun comes in a sturdy carrying case with a 900mm (36-in.) high-pressure hose, battery, and 90-min. charger.
The manufacturer notes that the SKF Battery-Driven Grease Gun joins a growing portfolio of unique lubrication-technology solutions for promoting optimized machinery health, reliability, and productivity.
