DOESN’T BEKAONE BELONG ON YOUR “BEST IDEAS” LIST, TOO!
More industry accolades for new ideas from BEKA – I just love it!
This time, it’s Construction Equipment magazine who included our BEKAONE pump among its “Top 100” new products for 2016.
I was a little surprised, looking at all the heavy machines and earthmoving equipment that dominate the Top 100 list. But the editors explain that their choice of products is based on:
- Advances in technology
- New product lines
- Significant improvements to existing products
- A product that increases competition in its field
The BEKAONE single-point lubricator really does qualify for the list as an advance in technology, as a brand new product and as a significant improvement over any alternatives. (I’m not sure if it “increases competition in its field” – there isn’t anything else like it!)
Let me make this one single point!
BEKAONE is a one-of-a-kind lube pump for applications that don’t need a full autolube system. You simply install a single BEKAONE pump to serve a single lube point on your machine. It’s incredibly compact, just 3 inches in diameter (about 7.6 cm) so it fits in nicely to spots that are hard to access for manual servicing with a grease gun – ideal for motors, drives, bearings, conveyors, compressors and chains that are buried deep in the machinery or located out of reach in awkward locations. After that, it supplies a precise dose of grease to the lube point on any cycle you wish to set up.
And… it keeps on doing it for up to two years!
This is PERFECT for those critical points that you’re apt to forget or overlook when you’re doing your daily service rounds.
Simple installation, better lubrication
As Construction Equipment points out, the set-up for BEKAONE is dead simple. Instructions are right on the pump body. The ultra-compact pump will operate in any position, so just tuck it in anywhere you need it.
The reservoir holds up to 4 ounces (720 ml) of lubricant – including oil and all common grease types – and it can be refilled up to six times with an ordinary grease gun. A display on the pump tells you how many more cycles it has left in it and the lithium ion battery will keep it running for up to 24 months.
For my money, the BEKAONE beats manually greasing in any situation, simply because it delivers small accurate doses the whole time your machine is running. The wear part gets more complete, more consistent coverage and that can only mean longer life for the machine and less downtime. The pump is designed to operate in virtually any climate, from -4o F to +140o F (-20o C to +60o C).
And, as I said, BEKAONE NEVER forgets. It’s simply (very simply) the most reliable solution for those difficult service points. So don’t you forget to ask us where BEKAONE fits best into your operation!
