Graco Inc has launched a new automatic lubrication system specifically designed for heavy-duty earth-moving machines in extreme work environments.
The Compact Dyna-Star® (CDS) lubrication system offers the power and performance needed for the toughest users and markets, according to the company, adding that it also has a smaller footprint and is priced to fit customer needs.
It builds on the company’s range of fluid transfer, lubrication, cleaning, painting, coating and insulation products for the mining sector.
“When paired with Graco’s new innovative Bluetooth-enabled GLC™ X controller and Auto Lube™ app, maintenance crews can monitor system performance, receive alerts, and adjust configurations from their smartphone or tablet,” the company said.
Dan Jensen, Graco’s Lubrication Equipment Division Global Product Marketing Manager, said: “The Compact Dyna-Star system is the latest offering in our comprehensive portfolio of automatic lubrication systems. Built tough like our Electric Dyna-Star pump, the CDS fits into tighter spots and meets tighter budgets. Finally, there’s a rugged ‘right-sized’ automatic lubrication system.”
A Maintenance Manager that tested the product said: “We’re impressed by how easy the Compact Dyna-Star automatic lubrication system is to fill with grease and how the pump shuts off when full. We appreciate the higher volume output per minute with the motor running less frequently, and how the smaller pump footprint enhances safety by taking up less room on the walking deck.”
Graco will be showing off the Compact Dyna-Star system at the upcoming CONEXPO-CON/AGG show from March 10-14, 2020.
