Kelgraf Lubricator InformationThe original design for the Kelgraf Lubricators dates back to 1964. G. P. Reeves Inc. purchased the manufacturing division in 1988 and has made many improvements. Older Kelgraf lubricators generally consist of three major components:
Parts for the motor-pump-reservoir assembly are almost impossible to obtain so
we now offer the K-Pump Res-1000. Its price is $996.00.
The controllers have so many obsolete components that we have almost given up on replacement parts. However, we do offer replacement Mercury Wetted Relays (K-1021) at $398.00 each. Prices lists from the '60's show these at $25.30, but they are now custom made and purchased "one at a time". We also offer a complete replacement controller as our part number K-1178 Controller. It sells for $3,120.00 and uses a PLC with count control, an interface panel, a proximity sensor, a solid state drop size controller, and a solid state relay to momentarily energize the injectors. The PLC with count control allows the customer to enter the number of proximity sensor inputs expected in one complete chain revolution, the number of times that complete chain revolution should be lubricated, and the number of timers that complete chain revolution should be skipped (not lubricated). Repeat will be automatic and power interruptions will not cause the counters to reset. The K-1178-96 Controller requires 120 v.a.c., and also includes a NEMA12 enclosure and the proximity sensor.
The tubing, fittings and electrical leads for injectors are readily available from our stock, but the Injectors are no longer available. The K-1088 Kelgraf lubricator used K-1070 injectors (.018" drilled orifice). The replacement for this was our KA1164 injector (.017" diameter ruby orifice). This new injector sold for $328.00 each and included a resilient seal at the metering pin seat, a redesigned metering pin to facilitate short stroke full flow operation, and a ruby (jewel) orifice with smooth surfaces to resist build-up and clogging.
The older injector design had the nozzle tips integral with the injectors and this required the complete injectors with brackets, cords, and supply tubing be installed directly above the chain. This caused the problems shown below:
