Lumax has followed the introduction of its LX-1403 quick-release grease coupler with the extended length LX-1403-XL heavy-duty coupler.
According to Lumax, the patented designed product uses an innovative design that enables it to firmly latch onto the grease fitting, enabling hands-free greasing. The heavy-duty quick release grease coupler locks-on and creates a leak-proof seal. The LX-1403-XL has a working pressure of 15,000 PSI and burst pressure of 22,000 PSI.
The company says the product has the highest pressure rating in the world. It has hardened 4-jaws to withstand high pressures without deformation. Additionally, the company claims it has no spurts or splashes when disconnecting; a clean work environment at all times.
Additionally, the LX-1403-XL integrated non-return valve enables the unit to be disconnected easily at high pressures. The compact 5 in. length by 1.2 in. height is ideal for reaching recessed and hard-to-reach fittings. The LX-1403-XL also has an integrated 1/8 in. NPT connection. It is compatible with all sizes and forms of mounts and fits all SAE and metric grease fittings.
Lumax adds the product is suitable for use on hand, battery-powered or air-operated grease guns and bulk grease pumps. The ergonomic thumb lever design makes coupling and uncoupling totally effortless. No more tugging or time-consuming effort. No more twisting, yanking, stuck on couplers, or using a screwdriver to get it off, the company adds.
