Oil Streak Generating Unit
The Air-Oil Generating system delivers high efficiency lubrication for high-speed spindles and other applications requiring accurate oil deliveries, in combination with air flow. The Air-Oil Generating Unit is versatile and allows multiple configurations that enable systems to be designed to suit various applications.
The Air-Oil Generating Unit is a self contained lubricating system pre-assembled and ready for installation. The unit contains the following elements: an electric SureFire II Lubricator with precision gear oil pump, proprietary electronic controller to operate and monitor all functions, Air Treatment System (primary 5 micron filter and a secondary 0.01 micron coalescing filter), On-off Air Solenoid and an Air-Oil mixing manifold to inject oil into the air delivery tubing.
The Air-Oil Generating Unit is designed to deliver small amounts of lubricant in a uniform and continuous feed basis. The oil is injected periodically into the output air stream every 1~5 minutes and depending on oil viscosity and air pressure, delivers continuous particles of lubricant to the bearing. The goal is to still have lubricant exiting the tubing at the end of the interval, then initiate another oil injection. Spindles with high RPM and DN values over 500,000 benefit the most from the continuous oil delivery, as well as small pitch chain, cam followers and linear bearing subjected to coolant and debris. The ground rule is the Air-Oil systems must be vented and have a flow path to carry the lubricant to the desired surface. Spindles, housings and linear bearings must be vented to work properly.
The Air-Oil Generating Unit is versatile and allows multiple configurations that enable systems to be designed to suit various applications. The advanced design delivers precise amounts of lubricant and eliminates residual drift of ‘’oil fog’’ mist during operation. In general terms, Air-Oil can replace an existing Oil Mist or aerosol lubrication system, without modification of the spindle or system. Other machines that were formerly lubricated with grease-pack will require modification to allow air flow.
