New grease filling filter

Part of SKF’s range of filtration products, the new Lincoln small-grease-reservoir filling filter helps to minimize contaminants entering automatic lubrication systems during the filling process of smaller-sized reservoirs.

As grease enters through the inlet, it passes through the filter and then exits into a hose that is connected to the grease reservoir’s fill port. As the filter element becomes clogged, the unit’s clogged-indicator pin starts to retract, signalling that filter element cleaning is required. If the clogged filter element is not cleaned, grease will vent safely to a catch container but will not bypass to the reservoir.

The easy-to-install Lincoln small-grease-reservoir filling filter is available with either a 250- or 500-micron, crush-proof filter element, which is simple to clean. It has a fill rate of up to eight litres per minute* and operating pressure of 35 MPa (350 bar). The filter’s compact size makes remote mounting from the reservoir possible.

*Depending on application, type of grease and ambient temperature.
