Lubecore Spyder pump, 4kg version

Automated-lubrication maker Lubecore says its new Spyder pump has been significantly improved based on feedback from the market and an examination of warranty information on the systems already on the road.

The new pump is a replacement of the existing pump, sporting many improvements and additional features.

The new heavy-duty stainless-steel bracket “will not break or corrode” in even the toughest conditions, the company says. An insulated mounting system further prevents corrosion. It uses the same standard bolt pattern currently seen on the Lubecore EP0 pumps, which allows users to select from a wide variety of bracket options. The bracket can be mounted in three different configurations to allow for even more options.

A flashing LED shows power to the pump, and there’s an integrated, potted submersible timer inside the pump housing. An easy electrical connection is made outside the pump by use of waterproof Deutsch connectors.

The grease-filling connection is located on the pump housing and facing away from the front. A large removable filter is incorporated into the filling connection to allow the user to clean the filter in case it becomes filled with debris.

There are two overflow vent locations. One of the two vents is threaded to allow for an extension hose to be added and divert any overflow away from the pump area. The existing EP0 pump’s 4-kg reservoir and stainless-steel follow plate have been integrated into this design. Benefits of the larger reservoir include a longer service interval between fills. A 6-kg reservoir is optional.
