A stainless steel wire guard offers an extra level of protection for 9 oz. constant level lubricators located in exposed areas.  It diverts potential blows away from the glass or acrylic reservoir.  The American Petroleum Institute standard requires the use of such a protective guard for its centrifugal pumps.

The Oil-Rite wire guard installs securely by hand with no tools required.  Tilt the guard to guide it over the reservoir and press down as the prongs grab the aluminum plates.  A unique “opposing forces” design holds the guard firmly in position.  Only vertical pressure applied equally to the guard can release it from the oiler.  It can be done by grabbing the wire from opposite sides while pressing down on the oiler with both thumbs.

The glass or acrylic portion of the reservoir can accumulate dust, dirt, and oil, making it difficult to see the oil level.  The wire guard has the advantage of being able to be easily removed for cleaning of the viewing surface.

Despite the ease of installation and removal, the guard resists moving when struck from any angle.  Even the most severe blow will tend to dent the heavy gauge wire rather than shift the guard out of position.

The Oil-Rite protective guard for 9 oz. constant level oilers has the following features:

  • Install by hand – no tools or fasteners required
  • T304L stainless steel wire construction resists corrosion
  • Easy to see through the guard and inspect the oil
  • It can be removed for cleaning of the glass
  • Symmetrical design makes removal and reinstallation uncomplicated and intuitive
  • It can be installed at the factory or applied to oilers already in the field
  • Provides excellent protection of the viewing area from hard impacts
  • It won’t loosen or rattle from vibration
  • It does not interfere with refilling of the reservoir
  • It adds only about an inch to the overall diameter
  • It requires no modification to the oiler
  • The only instructions are “tilt and press” for installation
The wire guard fits 9 oz. constant level lubricators as well as any Oil-Rite 9 oz. oiler or reservoir with machined aluminum end plates (circa 2017 and newer).

The photo shows the wire guard alone and installed on a constant level lubricator.  B5401-1 is the part number for the wire guard only.
