PurgeX “Quick Pack” Complete Lubrication Systems are reliable, economical, compact and easy to install. This Quick Pack features 2 patented PurgeX pumps with a programmable cycle timer and easy to fill polycarbonate reservoir. The complete lubrication system is secured on a galvanized steel mounting plate that will fit into a standard 12” X 12” X 6” electrical enclosure. The system requires only electricity and lubricant to begin operation.
PurgeX has the ability to deliver very small amounts of lubricant with each cycle. Precise volumetric delivery is achieved with the positive displacement design. Any entrapped air and other impurities are automatically purged from the system when the piston slightly over-travels the pump chamber with each cycle. The net result is the ability to reliably deliver an exact amount of lubricant. There is no “after drip,” which makes PurgeX a very effective lubrication solution where product contamination is a concern.
This system is ideal for applications where compressed air is not available or where direct interface to machine controls is desired. The pumps are operated by an electric motor powered by 120V/60Hz (other voltages and frequencies are available upon request). The motor completes a cycle over a 60 second interval. There may be several drips over the course of those 60 seconds, but the pump dispenses the same amount every minute it is in operation. Lubrication can be synchronized with machine operation by activating both from the same electrical circuit.
The bodies of the Purgex pumps are made of anodized aluminum alloy. The units tolerate temperatures from -15° F to 120° F. Buna-N seals are used (Viton seals are also available). The liquid delivery per motor revolution is adjustable between 0 to .009 cubic inches and continuous as long as power is supplied to the motor. The motor speed is 1 RPM (for other motor speeds, consult factory). Each pump has a separate internal adjustment for lubricant delivery per cycle. The piston diameter is .250”. There is a 1/8” female NPT liquid inlet. Each pump has a 1/8” female NPT outlet. For detailed information on the Purgex pump used with this centralized lubrication system, click here.
Quick Pack Features
This Quick Pack has a 1 quart clear polycarbonate reservoir mounted to the plate. The reservoir is durable and allows liquid levels to be easily viewed. A polypropylene screw cap on top of the reservoir can be removed for refilling.
An adjustable, programmable cycle timer regulates lubrication intervals from .05 seconds to 100 hours.
The galvanized steel mounting plate is 10 7/8” across, 10 3/4" in height, and extends 5 1/2” in depth. The plate allows for surface mounting with (4) .194” diameter stand-offs that accommodate #10-32 screws. There are also slots for mounting the system in a Nema enclosure.
Set UpThis Quick Pack complete lubrication system is easy to install. Simply provide the wire connection between the motor and timer, secure the mounting plate, supply power to the motor, and route tubing from the outlets to the lubrication points.
The wire connection between the 24VDC motor and timer is to be provided by the customer. Additional requirements include tubing and fittings to reach lubrication points and an electrical enclosure, if desired. Set-up entails adjusting the dose and the interval. The pump is pre-set at the factory to deliver the maximum amount. Instructions for changing the dose are contained in the PDF document available on this webpage. A typical timer setting is to run for 1 minute - long enough for a complete cycle of lubrication to occur. Add another minute for each additional, consecutive dose. Use the timer's "off" time to idle the pump and space out the dosing.
