Lube Point Monitor
The 55105 Lube Point Monitor is an accurate oval gear mechanism that incorporates two magnets into one of the oval gears. The body incorporates a reed switch which senses the magnet passing. Lubricant entering the 55105 causes the gears to rotate. Each single rotation of the oval gear equates to a displacement of .040 cu. in. (.65cc). The monitoring of the 55105 is done with any PLC. The feedback from the 55105 will assure that lubricant has reached the inlet of critical lubrication points.
The 55105 Lube Point Monitor is intended to be mounted at or near the lubrication point inlet. It can be used with any type of grease or oil system (Dualine Progressive/PDI). Due to the nature of the intervals, proper filtration is required to keep contaminants out of the monitor body.
