Autofill Air Operated Dispenser
Available from Oil Rite Corp.
Oil-Rite Corporation designed a spray dispenser for use with continuously operating machinery. A standard spray dispenser uses a pressurized vessel to spray a lubricant or industrial fluid. The autofill spray dispenser utilizes alternating reservoirs in a controlled sequence to attain an “always on” status.
Spray dispensers are used to apply liquid to conveyors, chain drives, bull gears, trolley wheel bearings, wire rope, sheet stock, and during metal forming. Many of these applications are intended to run non-stop. When the liquid is consumed from a standard dispenser, the operation either runs temporarily without fluid or is shut down while an attendant refills the reservoir.
Two reservoirs are used together to achieve a constant source of pressurized fluid. While one reservoir is pressurized and dispensing, the other reservoir is depressurized and refilled. The auto-fill spray dispenser can eliminate the costs of an attendant and periodic shutdowns. It avoids the need for oversized reservoirs to maximize the run time.
Components come plumbed, wired, programmed, and attached to a steel mounting plate. Installation requires connection to pressurized air, a fluid source, and standard electrical current. Multiple spray valves can be connected to the single outlet in the same manner as a standard dispenser.
