A very efficient and technical solution that automatically
relubricate gears. Application is continues and
automatic. The special Lubrication Pinion is in contact
with the driving pinion or rack. The PU-Pinion is not
transferring force or torque it only transfers lubricant
into the contact area of the teeth.
The open pore PU-Foam material guarantees an
optimal supply of lubricant for the teeth. The PU-Foam
stores lubricant via absorption and releases it again in
smallest quantity in the contact zone of the teeth.
Excess lubricant is re absorbed. This prevents wear due
to lubricant starvation or spillage due over lubrication.
The foam is supplied with lubricant via the tube connected to the axis of the Lubrication Pinion using a suitable local grease dispensing unit like the FlexxPump system or a central lubrication system.
A long term wear free operation of the gears and racks can be guaranteed. The requirement for special open gear greases is dramatically reduced compared to conventional re lubrication methods. As for examples, spray system or brushes. The reason for this is the re absorption properties of the PU-Foam after exiting the compression phase which releases lubricant in the contact zone.
Typical application for Lubrication Pinions can be found in gears of large diameter bearings in wind turbines , open gears on ball mills ,kilns, dryers, winches, rack and pinions in machine and automation engineering.
ILS3 can supply short term many standard types and sizes of axis and pinions from a standard program. Different helix angles, width and number of teeth are available upon request.
Very good chemical and wear resistance. Upon request anneal version available (approved and tested for paint compatibility).
