1. Pneumatic grease gun
The working principle of the grease gun is roughly the same. The main difference between different grease gun classifications is the power source. The pneumatic grease gun is suitable for use in the lubrication system and the complete set of grease diversion equipment. It is suitable for high-viscosity grease, working in cold areas. It can also be equipped with a mobile trolley, a rubber hose and an oil gun to form a mobile electric lubricating device, which is specially used for low lubrication frequency, few lubrication points, large oil supply, and inconvenient to use centralized lubrication stand-alone equipment to move lubricating oil. Widely used in mines, ports, power plants, production workshops and other occasions.
2. Pedal grease gun
The operating mechanism of the pedal butter machine is ergonomically designed, compact in size and reasonable in design. Safe and reliable work, light and labor-saving, easy to move, this product is suitable for filling lubricating grease in metallurgy, port, automobile, construction machinery and various places without air source.
3. Electric grease gun
The electric grease gun does not need compressed air, and directly uses 220V/380V power supply as the power source. It is easy to use, fast, and energy-saving. Its advantages are low noise, stable working pressure, high production efficiency and low labor intensity. Using precision pressure relay control circuit, grease gun switch, the motor is also powered off to protect the motor and seals, and the output pressure can be adjusted according to your needs. It is suitable for many lubricating points, wide distribution range, plunger pump head pressure regulating valve, stable and reliable operation, convenient displacement derivation, compact structure, low vibration and low noise. Automatic operation can be realized with the corresponding electric control box.
4. Manual grease gun
The manual grease gun uses a pressure rod type grease gun to inject grease into the lubrication part of the beam pumping unit. It is characterized by light and simple equipment and easy to use. The disadvantage is that workers are labor-intensive and easily fatigued, which seriously affects work efficiency.
How to use the grease gun correctly
With the fierce competition in the market now, the styles of grease guns are becoming more and more diverse, but the basic principles of grease guns are similar, and the fuel nozzles are divided into two types: pointed and flat, and the accessories are also soft. Both the tube and the hard tube. The general construction of the grease gun is composed of the gun head, barrel, handle, handle, and the interior is composed of leather bowl, spring, steel ball, pull rod, exhaust screw, etc. On the surface, everyone is in a variety of ways. Now, grease guns on the market are generally prone to oil leakage, sand entering, and no oil pressure. This is also the most troublesome thing for users. In general, the grease gun is prone to leaking oil into the sand. One is the problem of the grease gun itself, and the other is that some are novices who do not know how to use the grease gun. Operational errors make the grease gun difficult to use. For some failures in use. We can try to avoid it, such as in
Before refueling, check whether the grease nipple on the machine is in good condition. When choosing grease, you must first choose a grease manufacturer of a larger brand. Once the grease is not selected well, the best grease gun will also break easily. The same is true for machinery. Mix in a few grains of sand, and if you are using a pointed grease nozzle at this time, it is guaranteed that you will be so angry that you have to throw the grease gun to relieve the hatred, and it is absolutely useless for the equipment. However, in most cases, all this is caused by self-inflicted. Therefore, we must keep the grease we use and the nozzle of the grease gun clean, do not use unclean tools to refuel, and cover the oil container in time. In addition, you can make a few pieces of yarn in the window shop, use scissors to cut into the size of the gasket in the grease gun cover, put it in the cover of the grease gun and pad it together with the gasket of the grease gun. You can look at the wire mesh. This method is very useful. There is also a fault in use that the oil cannot be pressed. In fact, it is just adding air to our oil gun. This small error does not know how many inexperienced novice we are at a loss.
The solution is of course not to add air to the oil gun, but it is also difficult for beginners. If it is relatively hard butter, you can use the suction type to refuel (be careful not to look at the method in the manual and expect to be able to suck the oil up, and It is to pull the rod relatively still and then use the gun shell to push it down, there should be no space in the middle); if it is very soft oil, I generally do not use this method (of course I do not object to others not using it) Although it can indeed suck the oil in, but the gun shell is cut on the It is a blast of paste. When you use an ash knife to add oil to it, don’t fill the jar full, but add it at one time, leaving a channel, so that when you throw the oil down with your hands, the air inside will come out ( Of course, throwing the oil down by hand is also a good choice). Some refueling techniques are mentioned above, but in actual use, there may still be air in it, which is not easy to add. At this time, some targeted measures must be taken.
