Clear View Oil Reservoirs (Oil Cups) use gravity to dispense liquid. They are designed to serve as a central reservoir of an oiling system. This oiler features an acrylic reservoir with lightweight and durable polypropylene endplates. It allows maximum fluid visibility by eliminating the center post common to many reservoirs.
The reservoir design utilizes a permanent bond that eliminates gaskets. A Viton o-ring creates a seal between the reservoir and fitting. A Buna o-ring is located between the fitting and mounting shank. The aluminum mounting shank has a 3/8” male NPT outlet to mount directly to a pipe.
The unit features an aluminum swivel fill cap. The cap swings clear of the opening but stays attached so it can’t be misplaced.
The diameter of the reservoir is 3 1/2” and the overall height of the unit is 6 3/4”. This lubricator is suitable for temperatures up to 160° F.
Additional shutoff and sight feed valves are needed for the regulation of liquid flow (see Oil Flow Control Valves).
NOTE : This reservoir is not for use with isopropyl alcohol. Polycarbonate reservoirs or reservoirs with aluminum endplates and Viton seals are recommended for use with isopropyl alcohol.
