HydrauliCircuit Technology, McDonough, Ga., a leader in aftermarket hydraulic kits and accessories, has been supplying automatic breaker lubricating systems for many years. With recent refinements engineered into their newest hydraulic system, the company now produces a product that it feels may well be the world’s best hydraulic activated Breaker Autolube system available.
Contractors rely on these breaker auto lube systems primarily for extending the life of the working tool and bushing in the hydraulic breaker usage. Breaker manufacturers traditionally recommend greasing the breaker every two hours of use. Manually greasing the breaker has become “old school” as studies have shown that most of the grease liquefies and runs out within the first few minutes of operation, plus many job sites prevent the equipment operator from performing this necessary function.
Electric and hydraulic auto lube systems have become the solution to the manual method of greasing breaker units and reducing down time for the purposes of greasing. These systems inject small quantities of grease on a continuous basis for optimum lubrication. The results: Overall grease consumption is significantly reduced compared to manual greasing. The only things that need attention are monitoring the grease level and replacing the grease bucket as needed.
The new HydrauliCircuit Technology Autolube System has taken all the guesswork out of automatic breaker lubricating systems. The fully hydraulically activated system works with a standard five-gallon bucket of grease, which clamps down on the machine wherever the owner prefers and is powered by servo/pilot pressure. The grease output is infinitely adjustable. The key upgrade to the Autolube System is the addition of a low level warning sensor unit. Machine owners can choose between an audible warning signal and/or complete shutdown of the breaker unit operation when the grease bucket is depleted.
HydyrauliCircuit Technology engineers state that the cost of the system is quickly recouped with the resulting extended tool and bushing life, as well as overall machine “up time.” The company provides the entire system for any carrier/breaker combination. The kit includes the pump, flow control, mounting components, fittings, adapters, low level sensor unit, shut down unit, hoses to the end of the stick and detailed installation instructions.
