ABLE are exclusive representatives for Trico Constant Level Oilers, which are designed to maintain a predetermined oil level in a pump bearing housing, gear box, or other oil sump applications. If the oil level drops below a certain point, the depleted oil automatically self-levels based on the constant level oilers volume. This adds the perfect amount of lubricant every time increasing efficiencies and scheduling of routine maintenance.
ABLE offer three types of constant level oiler:
- Opto-Matic Constant Level Oilers
- Opto-Matic Closed System Oilers
- Watchdog Closed System Oilers
The Opto-Matic Constant Level Oiler has been an industry standard for more than 75 years and is installed in millions of plants world-wide. Used to maintain accurate lubricating oil levels, the oiler has been utilized as a reliability tool in machine bearing housings.
The one-piece glass reservoir design with multiple air vent slots ensures proper constant level function at all times, with adjustable level settings facilitating a wide range of applications. Unlike its competitors, the unit does not suffer from air leakage that would cause overfilling of the bearing housing. Furthermore, large surge chambers help to prevent oil overflow during machine start-up or shutdown.
The Closed System Opto-Matic Oiler is designed for all types of equipment where a constant level in an oil housing must be maintained. The closed system design prevents contamination and spillage. The adjustable collar allows the oil level to be externally adjusted to the desired amount. A 1/8” NPT port is provided for a vent line back to the housing to allow pressure balancing between the oiler and the housing.
The one-piece glass reservoir ensures proper constant level function. The design negates the possibility of air leakage that would cause overfilling of the housing.
The bottom of the adjusting collar indicates actual oil level setting for easy set-up and maintenance and side and bottom connections facilitate simplified installation. Furthermore, a two-inch sight gauge is available for easy viewing of oil level.
The Watchdog variant is designed for bearing housings, gear boxes, and other oil sump lubrication applications. It is ideal for use in the chemical processing, power generation, pulp and paper, and utility industries. The viewport provides visual indication of lubricant level and condition. Mounted on the centreline of the desired oil level, these constant level oilers do not require any adjustment or level setting.
The Watchdog’s closed system design prevents contamination and spillage. Installation is simple as no vent line to pump bearing housing is required and an integral viewport eliminates the need for an additional component.
The unit mounts on the centreline of desired oil level, and does not require adjustment or level setting.
