Swedish pump manufacturer SKF has launched its BPH30 hydraulic barrel pump for large automatic lubrication systems used in demanding applications such as heavy machinery used in the construction and mining industries.
The BPH30 pump is available with or without sensors and can be configured to individual needs. It is designed for large automatic lubrication systems such as single-line, progressive or dual-line, as well as filling processes.
The BPH30 is constructed from heavy-duty materials, making it very robust. It also has a compact design, allowing it to be mounted in tight spaces, an operating temperature range from -40°C to +80°C and accepts greases up to NLGI 2. The pump has a single outlet, which can be positioned on the left, right or front of the device. A special three-seal design helps to prevent leakage of both hydraulic oil and lubrication grease. This maintains safe and reliable operations, while minimising the risk of contamination. A leakage indicator provides clear visual confirmation that the sealing system is working. Built-in sensors monitor oil pressure, temperature and piston movement, which helps to avoid sudden machine failure.
