Electro Lubers (gas-driven units) are not refillable by the end user but can be returned for refurbishment/refill. All other ATS Products are refillable/rechargeable by the end user: Jack Lubers have a replaceable grease cannister, Ultimate Lubers can be refilled using a standard grease gun, the Titan CL uses a standard 400g grease cartridge & the Titan Oiler can be refilled/topped-up with oil via the filler cap on top of the reservoir.
The Electro Luber relies upon an electro-chemical reaction. Resistors control the amount of current passing to an electrolyte solution & this controls the rate of generation of safe, inert, nitrogen gas. The gas expands a bellows which pushes against a piston to expel the lubricant.
The Electro Luber is capable of producing 55 psi. The Jack Luber is capable of producing 200 psi. The Ultimate Lubricator, Titan CL & Titan Oiler are capable of producing 900 psi.
The Electro Luber is designed for industrial use. Constant & severe vibration could affect the performance of the Electro Luber and in such cases remote mounting is recommended.
Yes, Electro Lubers can be used on electric motors but is important to adhere to the motor manufacturer’s recommended lubrication rate & not to over lubricate.
Yes, you have to use all the outlets on the distribution block. Plugging any of the outlets will prevent the lubricator from working. If you need to reduce the number of feeds, a cross-port adaptor is required.
The piston & grease level are visible through the translucent body of the lubricator. You will be able to tell when the unit is empty as the orange piston will be pushed to the bottom of the unit.
Electro Lubers are made out of nylon & other materials that are chemically resistant to corrosion.
The Ultimate Lubricator can be remotely mounted up to a maximum distance of 35ft, using 6mm bore pipe.
Electro-Lubers (gas driven units) can be used in temperatures ranging from -40 c to + 55c. Temperature fluctuations can affect the feed rate of the Electr0 Luber although this is not usually significant & the interval switches can be adjusted to compensate. The feed rate of motor-driven units in the ATS Product Range (Ultimate, Jack, Titan CL, Titan Oiler) is not affected by temperature.
Products that are ATEX Certified can be used in hazardous locations, such as refineries, mines & other confined spaces.
Once installed, ATS Products are essentially maintenance-free until the end of the chosen dispensing interval, at which point they need to be changed/refilled. However, it is good practice to periodically check that the LED is flashing correctly & that the lubricant level is going down as a part of your general preventative maintenance schedule.
Yes, all of our products are available UK wide.
Just about any lubricant can be used.
Yes, ATS Products are ATEX Certified & are already used in the mining industry, both above & below ground.
Only the Electro-Luber is submersible, down to 30 feet.
Yes, ATS Products are made of durable materials & are well proven in harsh environments.
Yes, ATS Products are ATEX Certified.
All grease dispensing units can be mounted in any orientation. However, oil filled Electro Lubers should be mounted upside down, or fitted with a low pressure non-return valve, to prevent the oil from pouring out.
Yes, any type of oil can be used with the Electro Luber (but see question 19).
Yes, typically within a day of each other.
No, the unit will not empty any sooner but will help to prevent any contaminant from entering and wearing the bearing.
The “B” switch is applied to make the lubricator go a little bit faster. This can be useful when using heavier greases or when units are being with a short feed line.
No, the batteries in all the ATS Product Range will easily last long enough, even for the longest dispensing intervals.
This will vary. On a 1 month setting an Electro Luber will start to dispense within 24 hours but on a 12 month setting it could take up to 10 days. Therefore, for longer dispensing intervals, the bearing should be primed prior to installing the lubricator.
No, the Electro Luber can only produce 55 psi. It takes between 275 psi to 450 psi to blow a bearing seal.
The Electro Luber (gas-driven unit) is only suitable for use with a short fee line (max 3ft using minimum 6mm ID pipe). The Jack Luber can be used with grease lines up to 10ft & the Ultimate Lubricator & Titan CL can be used with grease lines up to 35ft in length (again minimum 6mm ID pipe).
No, spring type lubricators do not build up pressure.
Yes, but first remove and properly dispose of the batteries.
All ATS Lubricators come with a 12 month warranty.
