Graco’s new G-Mini compact lubrication pump complements the company’s established G1 and G3 Series and is designed with an optional built-in heater that automatically turns on at low temperatures.
The built-in heater allows the G-Mini to pump NLGI grade 2 grease at temperatures as low as -40°F (-40°C). The pump extends equipment life cycles and its IP69K design can withstand the harshest environments. All models come with low-level notification, which helps operators ensure there is always sufficient grease in the reservoir.
The G-Mini pump is designed for machines such as wind turbines and in-plant equipment. The pump with a controller and heater was installed on the skid loader of a large dairy farm, where the skid loader is used 10 to 12 hours a day, 365 days a year. Grease points on the skid loader should be greased daily, but staff were unable to do this. When the machine breaks down it can be out of action for about half a day. The manager said the Graco G-Mini auto greaser keeps the skid loader in service because it’s durable and keeps working in extreme environments.
