WE NOW CARRY THE YAMADA KPL-24 LUBRICATOR
The Industry's Most Trusted Grease Lubricator Pumps
Lubrication Technologies, Inc., of West Springfield Massachusetts, is the Sole Stocking U.S. Distributor for the YAMADA KPL-24 grease lubricator; a highly versatile grease pump and grease gun that can be used as a Stand-Alone Pump, with semi-automatic configurations when combined with a grease feeder distributor, lubrication lines and fittings to create a semi-automatic system. It also has fully automatic configurations functioning as the driving pump behind a fully automatic system when combined with an electric monitor, grease feeder distributor, lubrication lines and fittings.
With over 28 years of proven field service and having sold over 100,000 units, the Yamada KPL-24 is an electrically powered grease lubricator specifically designed for use on heavy construction machinery. It is powered by the internal DC 24V batteries standard in most heavy vehicles. The KPL-24 is compact, sturdy and provides maximum portability on any work site especially where there are no other readily available power sources. It fits directly onto a 5 gallon grease pail offering portability, cleanliness and versatility. It has a high discharge pressure and is capable of pumping grease of various viscosities.
“The KPL-24 has the ability to operate on just about any kind of mobile or stationary mining or construction equipment, as well as wind turbines,” notes David Piangerelli, President of Lubrication Technologies, “and it has a vibration resistance of 4G for all ground equipment.”
A 24-Vdc electric-powered grease lubricator greases heavy-duty equipment without tapping into hydraulic or pneumatic lines. The KPL-24 sets up easily and fits directly onto a 5-gallon grease pail (a 16-gallon version is also available). It works with a hose reel and hand grease gun, and can be used stand-alone or with a centralized lubrication system.
Weighing just 24 lbs (34% less than competitor models), the KPL-24 resists tipping and transports easily for long-term operation. The unit’s metal follower plate features Buna N wiping seals rather than being a solid piece of Buna N fastened to a coupling. The follower plate works in straight or tapered pails, and ensures the complete removal of grease from a container.
The pump can refill automated lubrication systems inside wind turbines or act as the driving pump behind the system. Its maximum discharge pressure of 4,061 psi is one of the industry’s highest. Discharge volume is 80 to 120 grams/min in continuous operation and 70 to 80 grams/min in 30-minute periods. The unit has a vibration resistance of 4G. Operating temperatures range from 14 to 104°F.
We have custom-made a laser cut, powder coated steel, Yamada Pump hold down mount that are typically used on excavators for a 5 gallon (35lb) pail of grease.
Uses of the KPL-24
The KPL-24 grease lubricator is highly versatile and can be used in combination with other equipment to meet any lubrication need.
Stand-Alone Pump - Consists of the Yamada KPL-24 grease pump and grease gun
Semi-Automatic Configurations - The KPL-24 can be combined with a grease feeder distributor, lubrication lines and fittings to create a semi-automatic system.
Fully Automatic Configurations - The KPL-24 can be the driving pump behind a fully automatic system when combined with an electric monitor, grease feeder distributor, lubrication lines and fittings.
Full Monitoring Automatic Configurations - The KPL-24 can also be combined with low level grease sensors, blockage indicators, fault warning, intelligent electronic monitor, grease feeder distributors, lubrication lines and fittings to create a fully automated and self-monitoring system.
Quick Setup Instructions
Rock the inductor plate on top of the grease - until it almost oozes out of the sides and center hole. This will remove any trapped air.
Stick the pump (suction tube) through the hole in the inductor plate.
Open Needle Valve and turn on the pump. When a steady stream (unbroken) of grease comes out of the hole in the needle valve, shut off the pump. This will remove any remaining air.
Close needle valve
Open gun (trigger) and turn on pump.
When a steady stream comes out, the pump is primed and ready to go.
