Air preparation system enables oil mist to travel further

Parker Hannifin is launching an innovative addition to its proven range of air preparation systems. Moduflex Lite combines lightweight and corrosion-resistant construction with patented nano lubrication technology that allows oil mist to travel up to 40m along the air line compared with a maximum of only 15m with more traditional lubricators. This makes it easier and more affordable to optimise the efficiency, productivity and reliability of pneumatic applications.

Moduflex Lite systems are manufactured from high-quality technopolymers, which makes them corrosion-resistant and up to 45 per cent lighter than conventional units. An injection moulded body has resulted in radical improvements to the system's internal flow paths, providing flow performance up to 30 per cent better than similarly sized units. As a result, users can replace a larger, more expensive air preparation system with a smaller, more affordable unit.

The nano lubricator supplies a constant but extremely fine oil mist that improves system lubrication while extending the intervals between refills and minimising oil consumption. The ability to extend the distance between the lubricator and pneumatic equipment to 40m opens up many new opportunities for efficient system design.

Parker says the Moduflex Lite series features a universal bowl that is chemically resistant and suitable for a wide range of applications. This enables users to reduce their costs and simplify stock management with a single multi-purpose system. Additionally, the system's innovative technopolymer construction enables it to withstand aggressive media and environments, making it extremely versatile and enabling synthetic oils and glycol-based anti-freeze to be used.
