Hydraulic Lubricators

  • Posted by Dora Szucs

Our range of hydraulic lubricators provides an economic and effective method for distributing grease to the rail.

Our PW Series hydraulic lubricator offers a number of specific advantages over mechanical lubricators. These lubricators can be embedded into the ballast in high traffic areas with restricted space such as stations and tunnels.

The PW Series hydraulic system withstands shock loading, especially at high speed.


The PW Series grease chamber is constructed of robust fabricated steel for enhanced protection and performance.


The PW Series grease chamber can be sited up to 3.5m away from the track, for increased operator safety and security.

Grease Pump

A foot operated pedal is provided for rapid pumping of grease system during installation and refilling. Positive displacement with easiliy removable filtered inlet and outlet non-return valves for maintenance. The PW Series is fixed directly to housing on reservoir side-wall.


Grease output can be controlled by a regulator valve on the side of the grease pump, which is fixed conveniently to the side of the grease container.
