Lubrication is essential to the proper operation of valves. Under normal conditions, periodic application of lubricant to valves is the only recommended maintenance necessary. The sealant, i.e., soft bearing seat of the valve, requires replacement when depleted due to flow media, operating temperatures, pressures and the frequency of cycles.
Lubricant maintenance means injecting enough sealant into a valve to provide a sealant film between a tapered plug and body to minimize sticking. There are three ways to service your Climax Lubricant valves. These include manual injection, sealant injection using a high pressure hand gun and injection using a Climax Model 10 lube gun. Each procedure is explained below.
"As well as lubricant grease, we recommend also the stem packing products and the lubricant pumps (Hydraulic and pneumatic) for the high reliability and stoutness demonstrated. We would like to highlight also the constant assistance received from Climax in the development of new lubricants for special applications and in the selection of the best lubricant for every application."
