Levelux Clear View Full Flow Electro Dispensers provide illumination of the liquid level. A motion activated LED light not only enhances visibility of the fluid level, but also draws attention to the gage. It helps operators or maintenance individuals monitor the contents and avoid depleting the oil. Levelux is particularly useful in dimly lit areas or where the line of sight is partially obstructed.
Levelux Full Flow Electro Dispensers are especially suitable for intermittent operation. Lubrication occurs when the solenoid is activated. 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 and sight are vented to allow liquid to flow easily by gravity through the 1/4” port. An additional valve is needed for the regulation of liquid flow, such as a valve brush.
This reservoir design utilizes a permanent bond that eliminates gaskets. The unit can be filled using the aluminum swing-away filler cap. The solenoid has a 1/2" NPT thread for connecting with conduit and is powered by 24VDC (additional voltages and frequencies are available). Buna-N seals are used (Viton and EPDM seals are also available). A Viton o-ring creates a seal between the reservoir and fitting. There is a 1/4” female NPT outlet on the aluminum valve body. The 1/8” female NPT bottom outlet has a plated steel pipe plug installed and 5/8”-18 mounting thread.
The diameter of the reservoir is 3 1/2” and the total height of the dispenser with pipe plug installed is 8 1/2”.
The LED is powered by two button cell batteries installed at the factory. The light activates for a few seconds each time motion is detected. Replacement batteries are commonly available as part numbers SP357 or SR44W. They may also be purchased from Oil-Rite as part number A7180-1. The batteries are accessed by unscrewing the knurled cap from the lighting unit (no tools are required). Use a magnet or rolled up tape to lift the two batteries out. Insert the new batteries with the positive end down. Hand tighten the knurled cap.
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.
