This Infrared Lubrication System combines the patented PurgeX positive displacement pump with programmable logic and infrared sensing, resulting in an exact amount of lubrication dispensed with accuracy on a moving target, typically a chain. The system synchronizes fluid dispensing with the speed and number of links of a chain. The integrated programmable logic control (PLC) specifies the frequency and duration with which fluid is applied. The infrared sensors verify the position of the target. Up to 12 pumps supply lubrication points with a volume of fluid that is easily adjusted with an ordinary screwdriver.
