Electro-Luber ™ - Nitrogen Gas Automatic Electronic Lubricator.
Continuous lubrication grease protection for most fittings - 24 hours per day, 365 days a year. Complete our Quote Request Page if you would like a quote on any Electro-Lube multi or single point lubricator system.
Two methods for dispensing the lube / grease --» Reusable motor driven units (see page 3b at the bottom) and the electro-chemical cell that generates inert nitrogen gas. View our Electro-Lube brochure in Acrobat pdf format.
A closed switch, or switch combination, will activate an electro-chemical reactor cell. The cell serves to convert electrical energy into nitrogen gas. The gas, which is completely inert, is trapped in a hermetically-sealed chamber under the cell. As more gas is produced, internal pressure builds up and triggers a piston. The piston then forces lubricant out of the cylinder and into the lube point / grease fittings.
The strength of the electrical current determines the amount of nitrogen gas that is produced. The gas, in turn, controls the rate of lubricant flow and the length of time the Electro-Luber ™ will operate. View a diagram of how it works!
Switch Settings and Combinations
Examples of control settings and approximate dispensing time against atmospheric pressure of 14.7 p.s.i. atm.
Standard lubricant fills with lithium soap base are available from all major oil companies. All dispensing rates are based on a 24-hour operation.
CCs or Shots
8cc or 8 shots of a hand lube gun
4cc or 4 shots of a hand lube gun
2.6 cc or 2.6 shots of a hand lube gun
1.3cc or 1.3 shots of a hand lube gun

Roller & Ball Bearings
Bearings with grease fittings on the labyrinth seal can be permanently equipped with an Electro-Luber ™dispenser. This will provide a tight seal around the runner and will prevent dust and water from entering the bearing.
