Automatic bearing lubrication

System 24 LAGD Series single-point automatic lubricators are “hands-off” solutions that deliver the proper pre-set amount of lubricant needed for bearings in machinery across industries. The gas-driven feed versions are engineered to perform reliably on a 24-hour basis without manual intervention and can resolve issues typically associated with hard-to-access or potentially hazardous lubrication points. Ultimately, they optimize the accuracy, reliability, and cleanliness of lubricant delivery, product engineers contend, contributing to increased uptime of assets, reduced maintenance, and favorable environmental impact.

Slab cure & seal

Silencure SRT provides a cuing compound and penetrating siloxane sealer in a single product that can be applied on broom finished, precast, hand or machine troweled surfaces. It works on newly placed concrete and can also be used on older unsealed concrete. Because it can be aplied to fresh concrete, it liminates the need for water or resin curing, stripping and the traditional 30-day waiting period before a silane or siloxane treatment, reducing labor as well as visits to the jobsite.
