SKF recently introduced a new metering device for grease applications. Developed for use in single-line lubrication systems, the Lincoln SLC features a spring-reset control piston and a modular design for less jointing and decreased risk of leaking.
With its compact construction, the SLC is suitable for use in renewable energy, construction and mining applications, as well as when replacing smaller, mid-pressure, dual-line lubrication systems.
The device has a high venting capability for compatibility with greases up to NLGI 2 and is intended to provide reliable operation in harsh conditions and low temperatures. The delivery volume can be adjusted via regulating screws or set with dosing screws. Both options ensure each lubrication point receives the required amount of lubricant.
The SLC is available in two versions, with the SLC1 for one to 12 outlets and the SLC2 for one to six outlets. Both are offered with BSP or NPT threads and in the C3 corrosion classification. Metric and imperial sizes are included for inlet and outlet fittings.
A leading supplier of bearings, seals, mechatronics, lubrication systems and services, SKF is represented in more than 130 countries and has approximately 17,000 distributor locations worldwide.
