PRODUCTION & ASSEMBLY FEATURE TWO-IN-ONE BEARING LUBRICATOR


Schaeffler has launched a two-point lubricator for rolling bearings. The system provides two separate lubrication points that can be individually adjusted to supply bearings with varying lubricant volumes. FAG CONCEPT2 is a compact, cost effective lubrication system for rolling bearings that ensures a constant, optimum supply of grease to the bearings without the need for manual intervention, particularly if machines are located in difficult-to-access areas or considered critical to the production process. The system is suitable for both OEM applications and retrofitting to existing machines or equipment. FAG CONCEPT2 provides two


lubrication points which are controlled by either one or two individual piston- dispensing pumps, enabling the system to be adjusted to meet up to two different bearing sizes with varying lubrication requirements.


Rather than having to purchase two separate single point lubricators to cope with different bearing lubrication requirements users can now buy one FAG CONCEPT2. The system is suitable for dispensing lubricant to a variety of industrial rolling bearing applications including pumps, fans, compressors,


gearboxes and electric motors. FAG CONCEPT2 can operate independently or be activated by an external control system coupled to a machine or production system. Protected to IP65, the system is powered by battery or a 24V DC power supply. The system dispenses either oil or grease up to NLGI 2. Delivery pressure is up to 50 bar on a 24V DC power supply or up to 30 bar when battery-powered. Operating temperature is from -20°C to +70°C. The lubricant is stored in a transparent replaceable 250cm3 cartridge, allowing users to easily check the level which enables easier fill-level control. The system is easy-to-use with an integrated LCD user display and two keypad control buttons for set-up and adjustment. FAG CONCEPT2 operates on Schaeffler’s ARCANOL range of lubricants which includes a large choice of greases developed by Schaeffler application engineers and produced by leading international manufacturers. These provide specific lubrication properties for most industrial applications.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY IN HIGH PRESSURE COOLANT DELIVERY


Although positive displacement pumps are more energy efficient than multistage centrifugal pumps not all positive displacement pumps are equal in that respect. Hydra-Cell hydraulically balanced, multi-diaphragm pumps have exceptionally high energy efficiency that is unaffected by pressure or the viscosity of the liquid being pumped. Screw pumps and gear pumps have internal leak paths that reduce their energy efficiency substantially as the pressure increases and as internal wear occurs. They are far less efficient when pumping water mix fluids than they are when pumping neat oils as they rely on the higher viscosity of neat oil for internal sealing purposes. High pressure cooling is usually carried out with watermix


coolants, making Hydra-Cell pumps the obvious choice. Independent tests have shown them to be up to 25% more energy efficient when compared to screw pumps pumping oil emulsions across a wide range of pressures and flow rates and up to 78% more energy efficient than multistage centrifugal pumps pumping emulsion coolant 10 lpm at 40 bar pressure.
