Robust, compact cartridge pump 

SKF has developed a compact cartridge pump that provides effective lubrication to many applications. The pump, called AECP, automatically lubricates up to 22 lubrication points making it time and cost-effective. Other benefits include increased equipment availability and reliability, simple maintenance, low cost of maintenance and spare parts, and easy retrofitting. The AECP requires no special refilling tool or equipment. Grease is stored in standard grease cartridges making it easy to swap out and prime while the motor and pump elements pull grease in a metered way. The use of cartridges also allows for a wide range of lubricants. It also fits into tight spaces and can withstand harsh working conditions and environments. The pump can be used to create a small progressive lubrication system when combined with SSV progressive metering devices. A built-in sensor gives early warning that a cartridge needs replacing. For more advanced monitoring options, the AECP can be operated with a controller.
