3685-B Alemite Mechanical Lube Meter Quart w/Rigid Extension
This 3685-B Alemite Mechanical Lube Meter Quart w/Rigid Extension lubrication meter measures oil flow, has a 1/2″ NPTF female inlet, and a control valve with a maximum operating pressure of 1,000 pounds per square inch (psi). The outer pointer of the dual-range face dial indicates delivery up to 4 qt./3.8 l. while the inner pointer indicates delivery up to 16 qt./10 l. A lever on the meter operates the pump that dispenses lubricant and has a lock mechanism to keep it in the open position for continuous dispensing. A totalizer keeps a lifetime record of the amount of fluid dispensed. This meter comes with a Rigid extension that has a non-drip manual nozzle. It has a 1/2″ NPTF (National Pipe Thread Fuel) female inlet and also has an inlet swivel and internal filter screen for keeping contaminants out of the meter. This oil meter integrates with oil guns and oil pump systems to inject oil into standard oil fittings and are used for applications such as lubricating motor vehicles, construction and industrial equipment, and aeronautics.
Oil and grease guns are handheld tools that inject lubricant (dispensed from the barrel or cylinder cartridge) into metal mechanical assemblies. Electric and air-powered grease guns can dispense large volumes of lubricant in commercial applications, while battery-powered (cordless) grease guns are more suitable for mobile and remote applications. Manual grease guns (lever, pistol-grip, screw-type, push-type, and suction) vary in duty and have either a rigid or flexible hose extension for attaching nozzles or a nozzle with coupler for standard grease fittings. Oil and grease guns are used in a broad variety of applications including vehicles of all types, construction equipment, factory and agricultural machinery, and aeronautics, among others.
Alemite manufactures lubrication and fluid handling systems and components. The company, founded in 1918, is headquartered in Fort Mill, SC.
