Mix and Distribute High-Viscosity Lubricants at Up to 500 psiFebruary 1, 2014
Lubrication-equipment manufacturer Industrial Innovations, Wyoming, MI, has introduced its new generation of Spra-Rite lubricant proportional-mixing machines (Pro-Mix). Stampers can use the Pro-Mix machines to blend synthetic, semi-synthetic and emulsified lubricants at multiple dilution ratios.
The machines feature a new controls package that can run single or multiple machines and distribute at pressures as high as 500 psi, making them a good solution for mixing and delivering high-viscosity lubricants. A new operator touchscreen and in-depth maintenance notification system built into the HMI make this a comprehensive and user-friendly system.
Pro-Mix systems can be connected to a network of piping to automatically deliver a continuous supply of pressurized lubricant mixtures to multiple presses. The systems feature stainless-steel reservoirs for stabilizing liquids prior to mixing and a patented Pro-Drive assembly for thorough mixing, control and pressurizing of the lubricant mixture. Additionally, fluid-level status indicators continuously monitor the level of the two fluids, and refill on demand or discontinue service if levels reach a low level during operation.
As in previous generations, the machines come in three models, all with an operator lockout feature that ensures mixture ratios are set for consistency without modification.Industrial Innovations: 616/249-1525; www.industrialinnovations.com
