A grease gun (plastic-tipped) is an efficient grease gun used for quick, easy application of grease to many different parts and surfaces. The main advantage of the grease gun over other tools is that it applies the grease in a single, controlled shot. If you’re using a gun to apply grease to an item such as a bolt, then a ‘manual’ gun will allow you to apply the grease and get it properly seated into the hole, but it will take time. Using a grease gun saves time and effort. A grease gun (plastic-tipped) is ideal for working on small items such as bolts, nuts, bolts, and so on. The main advantage of the grease gun over other tools is that it applies the grease in a single, controlled shot.
A grease gun (plastic-tipped) consists of a suction cup and suction tube. The suction cup has a very long reach, which allows it to cover a very large area in very little time. The length of the suction tube allows you to cover a much larger area of your workpiece. By extending the tube, you also increase the amount of suction that reaches the work piece. The longer the suction reach, the better you’ll do at lubricating bolts, nuts, bolts – you’ll have enough suction to really get the job done fast.
The grease gun works by drawing air into the nozzle from the air compressor. The air compressor supplies air to the suction hose, through an air hose that is connected to the barrel. The air compressor provides the power to move the barrel into an open position, where the suction hose extends its tubing.
You start by pulling up on the lever, which disengages the needle valve. As the lever lowers, the pressure in the tube decreases, allowing more air to enter the nozzle. This continues until the lever reaches a certain point, at which point it disengages the needle valve. Lower the lever again, and the gun goes into a stationary mode.
With a heavy-duty grease gun, you can achieve much greater pressures than with a less powerful one. But if you are working with a small tool, you probably won’t want to spend the money on a high-performance gun. You will, however, still need a good, heavy-duty pump to operate the tool, even if it’s being used to lubricate bolts. Check carefully how much pressure the pump can deliver before you buy, especially if you are using it to clean large areas, such as large bolts in a machine. You may be able to use a lower pressure pump than necessary for a given task.
When buying a grease gun, you need to decide between high-pressure and low-pressure. High-pressure produces a greater amount of spray because the air is sprayed at an increased velocity. Some models have high-speed firing, and they produce more spray for a shorter period of time. If your application requires a large quantity of air, you should go for a model that has a longer cycle time, allowing you to continuously spray large areas for a longer time.
Another important part of your grease gun will be the lubrication component. This part holds oils and transmission fluid, and it is essential to the proper operation of your tool. Lubrication is usually achieved through a yoke or zerk fitting, which allows one side of the fitting to be oiled with a different material than the other. The most popular materials used for lubricants include silicon, mineral oils, and synthetic oils. Some grease guns also incorporate a brass insert, which contains either a tiny amount of oil or a wad of grease, and these types of units are better suited for general applications.
Grease gun application equipment includes pumps that use suction to force the lubricant into the appropriate area. A wide range of suction forces and pumping speeds are available, including those that use gravity for larger areas or high-pressure pumping. Suction forces are generally available in both wet and dry modes, and most grease guns have a variable damping valve to allow for rapid draining of any excess water, while a drying mode is useful for working in tight areas where water may build up. Some grease guns also have a removable suction plate, which can be removed and washed if necessary.
