Weir Minerals’ Accumin Lubricators for mining equipment are designed to prevent bearing failures, reduce maintenance downtime and increase safety by decreasing the amount of manual maintenance, the company claims. The lubricators are produced in 125 cubic centimeter gas-driven configurations as well as 120cm3, 250cm3 and 500cm3 electromechanically-driven configurations. They can be installed up to five meters away from the lubrication point, allowing easy access to the mount while dispensing a consistent dose of lubricant, regardless of ambient temperature. The system can be easily monitored with an LCD display, a flashing LED alert system and a transparent grease cartridge. Web: www.global.weir
