Lumax L.L.C. has introduced a heavy-duty quick-release coupler that enables it to latch firmly onto the grease fitting, enabling hands-free greasing.
The LX-1403 coupler locks on and creates a leak-proof seal, the company said. It has a working pressure of 15,000 PSI and burst pressure of 22,000 PSI.
The LX-1403 has hardened 4-jaws to withstand high pressures without deformation.
The integrated non-return valve enables the unit to be disconnected at high pressures.
The product measures 2.9 inches long by 1.2 inches high and is useful in small, tight spaces, the company said.
The LX-1403 has an integrated 1/8-inch NPT connection and is compatible with all sizes and forms of mounts; fits all SAE and metric grease fittings; and is suitable for use on hand-, battery-powered or air-operated grease guns and bulk grease pumps.
