• Filtakleen Manufacturing has launched a monitoring device for its Lubrakleen automatic lubrication system.
With Kwik-Check the manufacturer is claiming that a 32-point ACL system can be thoroughly checked in three minutes.
A hand-held remote control is used to trigger the single stroke air pump from under the vehicle once the system has been put into service mode.
As the system is fired finger pressure on the pipes supplying grease points is said to be sufficient to detect if each line is functioning as it should. Should the technician be called away before finishing the test procedure, the service switch will default to normal operation mode after 10 minutes to avoid damage if the vehicle is inadvertently driven away during testing.
A pressure switch has been incorporated into the system as a further safety device. It reacts to pressure changes caused by running out of grease: a warning light on the dash is activated and the Lubrakleen system is shut down automatically.
