New Sharpshooter Fluid Dispensing System from Techno-Sommer Targets Hard-to-Reach Spots
Press release date: December 1, 2012
New Hyde Park, NY -- In some automated assembly or machine lubrication applications it is difficult to get near the point that needs the fluid or lubricant. In some applications, the fluid is extremely expensive and must be dispensed very carefully and precisely. In some cases, a mist of lubricant is not acceptable for the surroundings – either in the air or on the surrounding equipment. And in some applications, moving the dispensing system in and out to the point of lubrication is too expensive.
The new Techno-Sommer Sharpshooter lubrication system addresses all of these challenges. The system works off standard shop air at up to 90 psi and can place a drop of lubricant at up to 1m away with pinpoint accuracy. A pressurized tank generates internal pressures up to 750 psi. When a pulse is generated, a fixed drop size is dispensed. Up to 8 dispensing nozzles can be attached to one tank. The dispensing nozzles are available in 4 sizes ranging from 5mm3 to 100mm3. An extension hose of up to 2m in length allows for the dispensing nozzle to be placed around corners and in very hard to reach spots. The Sharpshooter will work with most fluids that do not contain solid particles or adhesives, with a viscosity range of 10 - 150 centi-Stokes (mm2/sec.) (SAE 75 gear oil to SAE 90 gear oil or cream to tomato juice).
NOW there is a manifold distributor available for the SHARPSHOOTER so that one unit can be used to dispense that critical drop of fluid to as many as 12 different locations – all at the same time. Each dispensing nozzle can be individually chosen from among the 4 available sizes and each manifold and nozzle can be extended up to 2m using extension hose.
