Graco Launches Electric Grease Jockey® Automatic Lubrication System

Automatic lubrication pump series expansion with first-in-class reliability

MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 27, 2017-- Graco Inc. (NYSE: GGG), a leading manufacturer of fluid handling equipment, is pleased to announce the launch of its Electric Grease Jockey automatic lubrication system. The Electric Grease Jockey system stands up to the harsh conditions of the trucking and fleet industry. The system’s new lubrication pump features integrated controls that provide system health and status, low level alerts and motor burnout protection. The distribution meters were also overhauled, allowing the entire electric-powered system to reliably deliver NLGI #2 grease.

Made in the USA with global components, this road-tested pump features an integrated low-level sensor that automatically alerts the operator when lubricant is low. The compact design and single mainline lubricant distribution system allow for consistent and efficient installations and service inspections.

“This pump is a unique offering on the market, with new features that deliver first-in-class reliability,” said Dan Jensen, Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division Global Product Marketing Manager. “We engineered an impact, UV and chemical-resistant system that is protected from motor burnout and provides valuable feedback to fleet managers while reliably and consistently delivering NLGI #2 grease – a tough pump for a tough industry.”

To see the Electric Grease Jockey system in action, visit booth #2658 at the upcoming North American Commercial Vehicle (NACV) show from Sept. 25-28, 2017. For more information or to contact a Graco account manager or distributor, visit www.graco.com/greasejockey.
