Wittenstein offers lubrication system for alpha Rack & Pinion
Wittenstein has launched a lubrication solution specially designed to work with any type of rack and pinion system. Without lubrication, the rack and pinion gears will become scratched and worn with the potential for teeth to eventually break. In Wittenstien’s system, the lubrication canister houses the lubrication for the type of application being used. This canister comes in two sizes, depending on the required dose to be dispersed.
A sensor kit is attached to the lubrication canister to notify when the lubrication is running low. For ease of use, an exchange lubricator is available when the original lubrication runs out. The lubrication flows from the canister to the mounting shaft through a plastic hose connection. The mounting shaft contains holes which allow for the lubrication to pass through to a felt pinion which disburses lubrication onto either the pinion or the rack.
