Grease injector for harsh applications

Second Quarter 2021 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

The new SKF Lincoln SL-6 injector has been designed for ease-of-use and low maintenance, with outstanding leak protection and service life, even with harsh extreme pressure greases. The SL-6 can easily be retrofitted to existing single-line pump systems. Product manager Jordan Butler explains: “With higher demands on productivity, less time for maintenance and low tolerance for unplanned stops, reliable lubrication solutions are a must to get the uptime you have invested in.”

Innovations in the SL-6 focus on supporting the harsh environments for which it is designed, including dump trucks, excavators and other mining and construction equipment. Quick maintenance features include a highly visible red indicator pin, an adjusting screw requiring only basic tools and a hex-shaped body which maximises working space, making it easy to handle and work with.

For optimally effective lubrication, its vent speed is faster than that of any competitor. This is aided by a daisy-chain effect: as soon as each injector finishes venting, it helps the next one to complete its cycle by consuming grease from the main line.

Improved sealing reduces the risk of lubricant bypass. In the unlikely event of a failure, the injector’s closed structure channels bypass lubricant to the bearing. Repair is then possible by simply replacing two components. The SL-6 injector and SKF Lincoln lubrication system help customers to take a giant step toward increased productivity. With less maintenance, less time spent on manual greasing, reduced grease consumption and longer component life, customers will soon see a return on their investment.
