AIR LUBRICATOR (SAL)
A Lubricator should be added to a system to provide downstream pneumatic components with a constant supply of oil lubrication by introducing a small amount of oil to the compressed air stream.
The oil will be dissolved and transported by the airstream to the point of use, in the form of fog. This technology is important to guarantee the best lubrication of your components, keeping your machine operating at maximum efficiency.
Lubricators are available in a variety of port sizes to match other air preparation components. They often use an adjustable visual indicator to measure the amount of oil downstream and have an oil reservoir bowl that can be monitored to ensure a constant supply. The bowls are also available in several sizes to store more oil as needed.
Today’s pneumatic devices sometimes don’t require lubrication but high-speed pneumatic power tools often do. Some are pre-lubricated and don’t require it.
