Color Key Clear View Full Flow Manual Dispensers are ideal for continuous operation. Liquid is dispensed when the lubricator is turned on with a toggle shutoff (using the toggle does not affect the metering adjustment). This oiler features an acrylic reservoir. The lightweight and durable endplates are made from red polypropylene. The item is also available in blue, green and yellow. Maximum fluid visibility is achieved 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. Flow can be turned on or off using the toggle switch. The toggle assembly has Buna-N seals (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.
Some of the advantages of Color Key products are:
Identification of Fluid Type
Plants that use a range of fluids (different oil weights, mineral spirits, etc.) can utilize a color coding system to ensure that each reservoir is replenished with the appropriate fluid.
Highlight a Monitored Point
Fluid levels need monitoring, but can be easily overlooked as just another part of a much larger and complex piece of machinery. A colored reservoir can stand out from the surrounding components and draw the attention of operators and maintenance individuals.
Frequency of Maintenance Checks
Fluids may be consumed at different rates and may require more or less frequent inspection. Color coding a reservoir can serve as a simple method for prioritizing or scheduling inspections.
Colored reservoirs can be coordinated with colors on the original equipment, accentuate the equipment’s brand, or complement the factory’s logo and color scheme.
The diameter of the reservoir is 4 1/4” and the total height of the dispenser with pipe plug installed is 9 1/4”. It is suitable for temperatures up to 160° F.
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.
