SKF offers new Lincoln lubrication pinion

October 2018 Motion Control & Drives

SKF has announced the introduction of its Lincoln lubrication pinion LP2 for open gear wheels and gear racks. Complementing SKF’s existing lubrication pinion line, the reliable LP2 features a modular design and the capability to lubricate fast-rotating applications up to 80 rpm.

As the pinion does not require pressurised air, there is no spray mist to contaminate the environment. Also, higher-viscosity lubricants, such as NLGI grade-2 grease can be applied. When compared to manual lubrication, use of LP2 provides better quality lubrication and reduces costs, labour and the risk of accidents.

The modular design enables customers to configure the lubrication pinion to meet specific application requirements in mining, construction, marine and material handling applications, as well as slewing or pitch bearings.

Combining more than 100 years expertise, SKF offers a complete portfolio of innovative lubrication solutions, from manual lubricators and tools, to the most advanced centralised and automatic lubrication systems.
