Wipes and Wipers

Ball Screw Wiper protects against contaminants.

Combination Wiper includes friction type finger wiper in front of felt wiper. Dual wiper keeps contaminants from entering ball nut, while simultaneously lubricating ball screw. Felt doubles as lubricant reservoir, maintaining constant thin film of oil on screw thread as ball nut moves. Because minimal amount of oil is deposited on thread, ball screw oil consumption is reduced by 75%. Wiper is...
