MVB PUMP PACKAGES

Description. The MVB lubrication system is a single
line, series progressive system which divides pump output into predetermined proportional amounts and distributes these amounts to the progressive series of divider valves. MVB lubrication systems were developed to handle the higher operating pressures typically seen in the gas engine and compressor industry and to offer the advantages of a series progressive system over a box lubrication system.

Configurations. With two pump sizes, 10 final drive gear ratios and six drive configurations, any lube rate between 2-300 pints per day can be achieved. The MVB system provides lubricant at pressures up to 8,000 psi, among the highest in the industry.

Lubricant Cleanliness. A filter/primer assembly
is available with a choice of a 10 or 25 micron filter element that prevents contaminants or particles from reaching the pump or the lubrication point. It has a unique self-scrubbing feature that lowers the frequency of filter changes.

Durability. All working parts are totally enclosed and protected from dirt, water and impurities. Each moving part is self-lubricated at all times by the fluid in the reservoir.

MSP ASSEMBLIES

Description. Designed for low-pressure grease or oil applications, the MSP divider valve assembly provides precise monitoring and positive feedback.

MSP assemblies are simple to install and operate. The modular design provides complete flexibility.

Components. Each assembly includes a minimum of three working valve sections and a base plate comprised of one inlet, one end and any number of intermediates, depending on the number of valve sections required (minimum of 3 and maximum of 8). This design provides from 1 to 16 working outlets with the use of crossport and singling plates. Each outlet is equipped with internal check valves. External check valves are available to keep the lines full and prevent lubricant from re-entering the assembly.

Options. SAE, NPT and BSP thread options on inlet and outlet connections allow installation on any equipment– domestic or international.

MSP assemblies are available in carbon steel with corrosion-resistant plating, as well as in stainless steel.

MSP assemblies can be provided with a zero-leak inlet shut-off. Either electrically or pneumatically actuated, this is a three-function valve:

1. allows lubricant to enter the divider valve,
2. bypasses lubricant to another divider valve, or
3. diverts lubricant back to the tank.

A zero-leak inlet shut-off replaces the standard inlet or can be mounted in-line with a remote manifold kit.


FEATURES & BENEFITS:
  • Suitable for grease or oil applications
  • Up to 16 lubrication points
  • InletsandoutletsavailableinSAE,NPTandBSPthreads
