SKF has introduced its Lincoln HTL 201 EEX hydraulically-driven pump for use in volatile applications, such as underground mining. Featuring a steel pump body and lubricant reservoir, this unit is a cost-effective alternative to expensive electrically driven pumps that must include a cabinet for protection.
Designed to minimise friction and wear, the HTL 201 EEX is operated via the hydraulic system of a superior machine or carrier system and supplies lubricant as long as that machine or carrier device is active. The HTL 201 EEX is based on the proven Lincoln HTL 201 hydraulic tool lubricator concept and includes a grounding point to discharge electricity immediately, if needed.
Compact and durable, the HTL 201 EEX is easy to install and maintain. Its refillable reservoir holds 1.5 l (52.9 fluid oz) of NLGI grade 2 grease. The pump unit has an integrated throttle to adjust the lubricant output, and it accepts progressive metering devices.
The HTL 201 EEX is approved for underground coal mines in Australia and South Africa. It has also been ATEX approved for use in underground coal mines in Europe (Mining Equipment Group: Equipment Category M2).
