Lincoln is reinventing Centro-Matic, our industry-standard automatic lubrication system - reducing total system cost, significantly improving performance and providing increased benefits for customers.
The changes are built around the new SL-V Injector. Since the system was first introduced in 1937, there have been many improvements to the injectors and other elements of the system, but the SL-V represents the most significant advance in the history of the line.
The SL-V provides many benefits because the new injector allows Centro-Matic systems to vent quickly which means the injectors reset many times faster. This has several implications when designing a system:
Use heavier grease - This provides the potential to eliminate grease change-out due to temperature variations where lubricants are switched to lower viscosities in cold winter climates
Reduce supply line diameter - This will save money on plumbing costs when designing a system.
Run longer supply lines - This gives you greater flexibility when installing systems and makes Centro-Matic a more effective option for many applications.
