For base plate mounting, for use in oil circulation lubrication systems
Flow limiters feed specified individual oil flows to each lubrication point of the connected system. These individual oil flows are non-sensitive to system pressure changes and virtually independent of viscosity. That makes them an ideal solution for applications with changing oil temperatures like in steel mills or mining. Their self-adjusting working principle makes sophisticated pressure control devices obsolete.
The SMBM flow limiter series is designed for base plate mounting in modular banks of 1 to 6 flow limiters.
Using interchangeable plug-in nozzles, the oil flow can be set step wise from 0.08 to 8 l/min (0.17 to 16.9 pts/min). Signal transmitters, piston detectors or gear meters mounted on the flow limiters monitor the oil flow for each individual device. They are connected to a monitoring unit.
SMBM series replaces flow limiter series SMB 8, SMB 9 and SMB 10.
