PRLog - Nov. 30, 2009 - LEIGHTON BUZZARD, U.K. -- SKF, the leading knowledge engineering company, has developed a hydraulic lubrication pump specifically for use with hydraulic hammers. The HS04 can be fitted to the hammer to provide effective lubrication even if the tool is uncoupled and moved from one machine to another. The hydraulically operated pump is robust enough for even the most aggressive environments and is quick and simple to maintain, keeping operating costs down.
SKF Lubrication pump
The HS04 hydraulic lubrication pump automatically dispenses the optimum amount of lubricant to the hammer as it is required. The delivery rate can be adjusted using a flow restrictor on the unit to meet the requirements of any application. The pump also features a manual lubricating nipple for emergency lubrication in the event of a hydraulic circuit failure.
The pump is designed to require little maintenance, with few parts and has a durable construction. The unit is able to operate effectively at low temperatures and under water, making it ideal for use with hydraulic hammers in hostile operating environments. When maintenance is required, for example to change the cartridge or clean the oil strainer, this can be carried out easily in a matter of moments.
By using a dedicated lubrication pump for hydraulic hammers, a fit-for-purpose lubricant can be used, increasing the performance and uptime of machinery. SKF has developed a paste that can absorb high pressures, offers good corrosion protection and reduces wear, enabling hydraulic hammers to deliver a long, low maintenance operating life.
