Progressive Divider Valve Manifolds distribute and proportion incoming oil or grease to bearing points. Individual valve blocks operate in a “Progressive” sequence. During operation, the piston within the block must complete a full discharge cycle before another piston begins operation. As long as lubricant is supplied under pressure to the inlet section of the divider, manifold valve blocks will continue to operate in a progressive manner.
When lubricant flow is interrupted to the inlet block, piston movement stops. When flow resumes, piston movement commences at the same point in the discharge cycle. Feed lines deliver lubricant from the valve block to individual lube points. Should a discharge line become blocked, it will stop all the valves operating. Indicators and cycle switches are available to alert a blockage.
