For maintenance personnel and others seeking a solution to the costly problems of grease misapplication and cross-contamination, Lubrication Engineers, Inc. offers its Clear Grease Gun in pistol grip and lever style versions as well as its newest option - the convenient Battery Powered Clear Grease Gun.

Available with the same high-quality clear tubes and anodized aluminum collars, the Battery Powered Clear Grease Gun is especially useful for lubricating hard-to-reach areas or equipment that requires frequent or large-scale lubrication. Covered by a full one-year warranty, the new gun has a maximum pressure of 8,500 psi, delivers up to 4.9 ounces of grease per minute and provides 19.2 volts of power. It comes with two 1,500-mAh rechargeable battery packs and an extra-long 30-inch whip hose, as well as a battery charger and hard plastic storage case.

If the wrong grease is applied to a piece of equipment, the resulting problems can be expensive and time-consuming to correct. In fact, grease cross-contamination causes an estimated 60 to 80 percent of all bearing failures. LE’s Clear Grease Guns are a simple, cost-effective solution for eliminating these mistakes, enabling industrial operations to enhance their lubrication standards, accountability and safety awareness.

“Since we introduced them in March 2009, our Clear Grease Guns have proven extremely popular as a solution for the problem of grease cross-contamination,” said Clay Calk, National Strategic Accounts Manager. “We are pleased to offer this new battery-powered version, expanding the possibilities for those who are concerned with lubrication reliability.”

As with LE’s other Clear Grease Guns, the Battery Powered Clear Grease Gun comes with a high-impact, fracture-resistant clear tube. The tube collars are made of durable T6061 aircraft aluminum and come in a variety of colors for secondary identification. LE’s Clear Grease Guns are available for purchase online or through local LE independent consultants. The Web site www.cleargreaseguns.com provides detailed information, including pricing, for this newest reliability offering from Lubrication Engineers.
