simatec has filled a gap in automatic lubrication with the launch of a new lubricator. With its slim aluminium housing (ø 22 mm, height 70 mm) the 15 ml can be installed where other lubricators are too big. With 15 ml of contents - grease or oil - the new lubricator offers a minimal, but continual amount of lubrication during the desired time setting (1 - 12 months). For lubrication points which only require a small amount of lubrication the device replaces manual lubrication, reduces maintenance costs, and extends the life of machine parts. Along with many other applications the product is especially suitable for linear guides, electric motors, pumps, ball screws, and small bearings. simalube lubricators come in five different sizes (15 ml, 30 ml, 60 ml, 125 ml and 250 ml), plus a multipoint version. These are available with high-quality standard lubricants. The supplier also offers empty lubricators for filling with a customer's own grease or oil.
