Model 120

Robolube…The Best Just Keeps Getting Better

The Robolube Hyrail Track Lubricator revolutionized hyrail lubrication of rail. Since 1990, Robolube Lubricators have been operating consistently in day-to-day operations in the rugged environment of the railroad industry. Many Robolube units are already at work in their second and third vehicles!

The Model 120 mounts easily in the back of a hyrail truck and has the ability to utilize the grease manufacturer’s standard 120 lb. barrel. Robolube’s innovative design utilizes the vehicle’s existing electrical system without the modifications that other systems require, such as, underhood power sources and/or additional electrical components. The Robolube design features an electric over hydraulic power source that has been “Field Proven” in day-to-day operations since 1990.

Since the introduction of the Robolube Hyrail Lubricator, track lubrication has evolved into an exacting process. Within this process, the amount of lubrication and it’s location are critical. The Robolube System, utilizes small orifice sizes to reduce unnecessary grease usage and insure that only the right amount of lubricant is dispensed to the rail. With Robolube’s standard nozzle arrangement, accuracy of lubricant placement on gage face has been greatly improved. Now with the introduction of the New “RollerLube” nozzle design, accuracy to gage face is not compromised by variables such as high elevation curves, high degree curves, weights and railgear/vehicle suspensions. Robolube introduced the first “Top of Rail” nozzle design back in 1995 in response to the Rail Industry’s demands and Robolube continues to innovate to meet the ever changing rail lubrication environment.
