Keep Equipment Running Smoothly this Summer

June 2nd, 2016 | Posted by Drip-Well

Oil is the lifeblood of almost every piece of machinery on the planet, and that is particularly the case for turbine pumps. That is why it is imperative that you both control the amount of oil being used in your machines and ensure that your devices are not wasting the precious fluid during operation.

This applies in particular on farms during the hot, dry and humid growing season that is right around the corner. Hot or humid temperatures can cause the formation of dry dust that can get into the filters and inner workings of your machines. Dry machines can equal potentially slower machines or damaged equipment, and slow or broken machinery means sluggish work or a complete stoppage.

You can prevent these problems and more with our patented Drip-Well system.


What Can Drip-Well Do for You?

The Drip-Well system can ensure that adequate oil is getting to your machine’s bearings whenever they are in operation. The system’s “set it and forget it” modes ensure that oil starts dripping as soon as your machine starts and an automatic shut-off protects you against oil loss by stopping the drip when you turn off your machine. It does this automatically without you having to remember to shut if off manually.

The Drip-Well comes in 4-, 7- and 11-gallon models, all of which are equipped with a large oil reservoir. It is a non-electric system as well, activated by water pressure instead of the 480-volts that are necessary to operate a typical electric solenoid. A manual mode is also a handy option to allow the user to bypass the automatic valve to lubricate after lengthy shutdowns.

Best of all, the system is easy to install and less costly than many alternatives. All plumbing supplies and instructions are included with each model, too, so you don’t have to go out to buy any other expensive parts. Plus, the Drip-Well is a piece of cake to install, and is designed to fit in the same location as the original oil tank.

When the hot weather comes around, your machines have to work harder than usual to complete their job, and consistent oil lubrication is paramount. The Drip-Well takes care of this for you so you can focus on getting your work done without sweating buckets in the process and worrying about equipment failures.

This system is utterly essential in ensuring that your machines run smoothly and efficiently. With years of hands-on knowledge and experience with dealing with this issues, our objective was to build the ideal system to both avoid oil waste and replace your old manual oil reservoir to make farmers’ lives easier – and that is exactly what we did.
