Grease Fitting

A grease fitting option attaches to shaft wipers on Uhing rolling-ring drive assemblies.

While the drive is running, the fittings automatically lubricate the shaft while wipers clean the shaft, removing dust and dirt to prevent undue grease buildup. Mounted adjacent to the wipers on each end of the drive, the grease-fitting assemblies contain felt rings that absorb and evenly distribute lubricant, eliminating the risk of overheating. The fitting option is recommended when shaft speeds exceed 1,000 rpm for Model RG drives and 1,500 rpm for Model RS drives.
