MEMOLUB® EPC
Single-Point Lubricator

The MEMOLUB® EPC is an externally controlled electromechanical lubricator that can be installed on a single lube point or coupled with a progressive distribution valve to lubricate from 2 to 12 points. This model can be wired to an external switch, relay or PLC to give you the on/off lubrication required for intermittently used equipment.
  • Reliable lubrication when you want it, reduce equipment downtime
  • Reusable pump - low cost replaceable lube cartridges
  • 52 programmable duration settings
  • Battery powered with external on/off function
  • 2 year lubricator warranty

Part Numbers:
MLEPC120 - MEMOLUB EPC Model 120cc
MLEPC240 - MEMOLUB EPC Model 240cc
MLEPC480 - MEMOLUB EPC Model 480cc

Lubricant cartridges & battery packs sold separately

Memolub EPC Pillow Block

The MEMOLUB® EPC lubricator automatically delivers a small, precise amount of lubricant at regular intervals for an continuous supply of fresh lubricant directly to your lube point. Prevents over and under lubrication problems related to manual lubrication.

  • 120, 240 or 480cc lubricant capacity
  • 350psi max output pressure from start to finish
  • Use with Oil or Grease (up to NLGI #2)
  • Remote mount up to 40 feet from the lube point
  • Use in intermittently used applications
Memolub EPC - Pillow Block Bearing

All MEMOLUB® EPC models use the same motor base assembly, making it easy to convert from one lubricant capacity to another by simply purchasing a low cost transparent housing kit.

The on/off function of the MEMOLUB® EPC is controlled by an external switch. The 12 inch cable that extends from the bottom of the lubricator serves to interrupt the electric circuit to the drive motor. When a switch or relay closes the circuit, the MEMOLUB® EPC first goes through an output cycle and then proceeds to operate under its own preset program control. When the circuit is opened the lubrication process stops

Simple MEMO Programming

The MEMOLUB® EPC lubricant output is programmed using the simple MEMO system. It consists of a brass MEMO fitting, a black plastic timing-ring holder, and three plastic timing rings (one white, one red, and one black). The MEMO can be programmed to control both the frequency of lube cycles and the volume of lubricant discharged. Once the MEMO is programmed and installed any MEMOLUB® EPC lubricator will recognize the settings. The program settings can be changed at any time, should your application require more or less lubricant.

Basic Frequency Settings

There are 7 basic frequency settings that are suitable for most industrial applications.  They are programmed by installing one or a combination of the three colored timing rings into the ring holder attached to the brass fitting. When you screw the MEMOLUB® lubricator onto the brass fitting, the timing rings depress the switches on the bottom of the lubricator. This activates the lubricator program.

Note: The "Months to Empty" is based on continuous use of the MEMOLUB® EPC lubricator. The lubricant cartridge will last longer with intermittent use.

Adjusting the Volume of Lubricant

Included in the MEMO kit is eight spacer washers for adjusting the amount of lubricant discharged per lube cycle. Installing one, or a combination of all eight washers, into the brass MEMO fitting will limit the stroke length of the piston inside the lubricator.

  1. Lower temperatures can be achieved by using a low temperature grease and cold-weather battery packs
  2. Splitter Blocks cannot be used with oil, and are limited to 7 lubricant output settings.
  3. Maximum lube line length is dependent on ambient temperature, grease type and application back pressure.

Application Case Study
Case Study No. 607
 Vertical Machining Center | Power Lube Industrial Vertical Machining Center | Power Lube Industrial
Industry:
Automotive
Application:
Machining Center
Issue:
Manual lubrication was done on an inconsistent basis, and often not at all on this vertical machining center.
Solution:
Two 6-Point MEMOLUB lubrication systems were placed inside the machine to service all lube points, while the lubricators were mounted outside the cabinet, for easy lube cartridge replacement and visual inspection.

Application Case Study
Case Study No. 052119 - Lubricating Bottle Crusher Machine Bearings
Memolub 12-Point Lubrication System
Application:
General Production Equipment
Industry:
Food & Beverage
Background:
Equipment operated 24/7 making it very difficult to stop for the required maintenance intervals. To lubricate the 12 bearings, the machine had to be completely shut down and locked out and access to the bearings required several panels be removed. When lubrication was done, it was done so very quickly in order to get the equipment back up and running. This led to inadequate, and sometimes completely missed, lubrication.
Solution:
We installed a MEMOLUB® 12-point Multi-Point System to supply constant lubrication to the bearings, while the bottle crusher remained in operation. The lubrication system was mounting to the outside of the equipment, making it possible to replenish the lubricant supply without shutting down the equipment. This was a huge advantage as it allowed maintenance technicians to avoid time-consuming lock-out/tag-out procedures while still remaining compliant.
Worth Mentioning:
Multi-Point Systems with more than 8 outlets have restrictions on tubing OD, tubing length and the viscosity of the lubricant. Please call our staff at 800-635-8170 to answer any questions about sizing and installing your MPS System.
