Grease Leakage Tendencies Tester
Consists of a modified front wheel hub and spindle assembly with drive
motor and constant temperature air cabinet. Rotates hub at 660rpm while
maintaining spindle temperature at a constant 220°F (104°C)
or other specified temperature. Oil that has separated from the sample
grease during the test period is collected in the hub cap and in a leakage
collector that installs on the spindle. The hub is rotated by a durable
1/3hp motor through a V-belt drive. Microprocessor PID control provides
quick temperature stabilization without overshoot, and the unit is protected
by an overtemperature control circuit that interrupts power should bath
temperature exceed a programmed cut-off point. Dual LED displays provide
actual and setpoint temperature values in °C/°F format. Communications
software (RS232, etc.), ramp-to-set and other enhanced features are
available as extra cost options. Cabinet is insulated on all sides
and has a hinged cover for easy access to the hub-spindle assembly.
Thermometer ports in the spindle and the cabinet allow for precise setting
and monitoring of test temperature. Housed in a heavy-gauge steel exterior
with polyurethane enamel finish.
High Temperature models to 205°C available. Contact your Koehler
representative for information.
