Easy does it with PICO pumps at Waste Expo
This is always a big show for us and we look forward to catching up with all our old friends here.
After all the big iron shows we’ve been attending, we change gears a bit here to focus on our customers’ truck fleets. These refuse trucks, whether they are front loaders, side loaders, rear loaders or multi-compartment vehicles, are a special breed – hard-working vehicles that are built more like mobile processing plants than haulers. They go all day long, every day, in all kinds of weather – and they have deadlines to keep!
Packing a load of machinery as well as a drivetrain, this kind of application leaves no room for downtime. That’s why we’ll be highlighting our compact PICO lube pumps at the show this week. Everything on a compactor truck is constantly in motion, and that’s when you need consistent, continuous lubrication most.
PICO pumps are really made for this job! They are up to 60% smaller than comparable pumps, so they fit in where others can’t, snugged into the midst of the gearing and lifts and hydraulics that drive the trucks’ various operations. PICO’s intelligent grease sensors delivers accurate, measured doses of grease matched to the needs of each service point, from 5 to 50 cm3. They’re powerful enough to serve up to 8 grease points. And since they can use a pump element that’s attached to either a distribution block system or to small injectors, they are flexible enough to make installation easy.
Rated to run in temperatures from -13º to 158º F (-25º to +70º C), our PICOs are all-season ready to keep your collection trucks on the road, and on time.
Don’t you wish all your maintenance needs were this easy?
But that’s just how it goes when you’re in the Big Easy, with BEKA. Come on by, Booth #3359 and say hi and get caught up on the latest from BEKAWORLD.
