Shaft scraper option.

AMACOIL INC., ASTON, PA. Uhing linear drives are now available with a combination shaft scraper/grease fitting option, which removes excessive grease, dust, and dirt from the shaft while the drive is running and simultaneously assures shaft lubrication. Shaft scrapers may be used without the grease fittings, but the grease fitting combination is recommended in heavy usage applications or when shaft rpm exceed rated speeds. Most standard grease gun nozzles fit the Uhing grease fittings. Special molybdenum disulfide-free grease must be used. If attached in the field, users must also note that the addition of the shaft scraper with or without the grease fitting will slightly reduce the travel distance of the linear drive, usually by less than 1 inch.
