MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 13, 2015--
Graco Inc. (NYSE:GGG) has introduced the LubePro™ family of
injector-based automatic lubrication pumps. LubePro pumps represent a
breakthrough in performance and durability. LubePro pumps leverage
components from the durable and reliable Graco Fire-Ball®
lubrication pumps, which for over 50 years have delivered proven quality
and long-life performance.
LubePro™ series pumps offer a robust solution where high output and fast
lubrication cycles are needed to optimally lubricate equipment while
it’s working. They are most commonly used to lubricate machines used in
food and beverage processing and packaging, glass manufacturing, tire
production, injection molding, paper production and many other
industrial manufacturing and production applications.
“Every day, plant managers have to worry about keeping up with
production demands and reducing operating costs,” said Chuck Hartl,
Global Product Marketing Manager for Graco’s Lubrication Equipment
Division. “Improper lubrication of their machines can cause component
failure and downtime, which results in unplanned maintenance expenses
and loss of production. We also understand that customers expect auto
lubrication systems to not become a new source for maintenance issues.
Therefore, with LubePro™ pumps our customers can expect greater
reliability and less maintenance time related to machinery lubrication.”
Key Features and Benefits of LubePro™ Pumps:
Three models available. The A900 and A1900 are designed for oil
applications, and the A2600 is built for grease applications.
Higher Lube Output and Frequency. All three pumps deliver
greater output over the competition, which allows the system to
lubricate more points and cycle more frequently.
Factory-installed low level detection. LubePro pumps are
available with a durable low level detection system – factory
installed. Competitive models require user installation of a low level
system that includes many parts.
Self-venting pump with no priming required. The integrated vent
valve automatically and reliably relieves pressure on return stroke to
provide years of trouble-free performance and there is no need to ever
prime the pump.
Engineered seals that last. No worries about leaking over the
follower plate or into the air motor - LubePro seals are engineered to
Full line of complementary products. Package with Graco’s GL™
