Cotta T series lube systems support the lube requirement of Cotta gearboxes that do not have sufficient internal reservoir capacity for standalone operation. The systems are available in five sizes from 5 to 60 gallon tank capacity. These units are custom configured according to gearbox requirements for lubricant type, pressure, flow, and filtration. Some systems are unitized and shipped assembled. Non-unitized systems are shipped as sub-assemblies for customer completion.
Capacity: T series lube stands are available as described by the number after the letter “T” indicating max tank capacity in gallons – not flow or working capacity. T5, T17, T20, T40, and T60.
Pump: Positive displacement single or multiple-section pumps are utilized. Multiple-section pumps support ancillary functions, such as labyrinth seal scavenge or charge pressure to additional test components.
Motor: Standard industrial electrical motors sized to meet pump power requirements. Discuss with Cotta your facility electrical requirements.
Heat Exchanger: Shell-and-tube oil/water heat exchangers are standard. Plate type oil/water heat exchangers and oil/air radiators are options for some T units.
Temperature Control: Liquid cooled units use a temperature sensing modulated valve to regulate temperature by controlling water flow to the heat exchanger. Radiators use calibrated temperature switches for fan actuation.
Temperature/Pressure Switch: lubricant over-temperature and under-pressure switches for integration into customer controls are optional.
Level Indicator: Glass plug sight gage or vertical glass tube are typical. Electronic level sensor is optional.
Filter: Bypass type. Micron is application dependent.
