FLEXLube gives operators improved control over lubrication cycle time
Emhart Glass is pleased to announce the launch of its new FLEXLube system, delivering enhanced control over lubrication for IS machines.
As new glass-forming technologies are introduced, the careful management of lubrication systems is becoming increasingly important. Most modern IS machines require multiple oil connections, whether to control the frequency with which lubricant is injected or the type of lubricant used.
FLEXLube gives operators improved control over lubrication cycle time and oil type in a simple, integrated system consisting of a single pump, distribution box and control unit, replacing complex solutions using multiple pumps and controls.
The pump unit consists of an oil reservoir, pump, pressure-relief valve and four-way two-position exhaust valve. In addition to the basic, single-pump unit, a unit with dual oil pumps is also available. This allows two different oil types to be used, meeting the lubrication requirements of all types of IS machine lines.
The pump unit is complemented by a distribution box consisting of an isolation valve, solenoid-actuated gate valve, pressure switch and manometer. Distribution boxes are available with one or two inlets (for one or two types of oil) and a total of four outlets (for up to four zones, configured for various allocations of oil type).
FLEXLube delivers system pressure with a constantly running gear pump. Pressurised oil is directed into lubrication lines via the exhaust valve, and the distribution box provides zone...
