The AC pump is electronically powered from the vehicle ignition system, delivering metered quantities of lubricant
The AC pump is electronically powered from the vehicle ignition system, delivering metered quantities of lubricant to chassis lubrication points through calibrated pumping units and nylon tubing. Each lube point is said to receive a small shot of grease every 12 minutes. According to the manufacturer, this product has the ability to handle Grade 2 NLGI Grade 2 greases down to 20°F. This is achieved by installing a slowly rotating paddle within the reservoir, ensuring an even flow of lubricant regardless of temperature.
Engineered for a long working life, the pump is virtually maintenance free and, depending on the application, will operate for up to 720 hours on one reservoir filling. Filling the reservoir is via a sealed filler cap for either oil or fluid grease and a bottom grease nipple for heavier greases. It is available in 12 and 24-volt versions and with 12 or 24 outlets.
