SIZES AVAILABLE - STICK OR BULK
Homestead lubricants are furnished in the following sizes:
*NOTE: Temperature range that appears are the limits that the valve can seal effectively while at operating pressures. Operating pressures vary according to valve size, material of construction, and valve service temperatures according to ANSI B16.1 for iron and B16.5 for steel valves. The lubricant will perform at the pressure limitations set forth by these industry standards within the temperature range indicated.
HOW TO ORDER
A lubricant in addition to sealing must also protect the valve against effects of the fluid being handled. Any conditions which melt or wash away lubricants may cause valve failure. It is therefore important that characteristics of the fluid being handled be considered when ordering lubricants. Be sure to give the following information on your lubricant order:
1. Fluid handled (if acid, give degree of concentration)
2. Temperature 3. Pressure
HOW TO LUBRICATE
Homestead Lubricated Valves may be lubricated in either the open or closed positions, by means of the lubricant screw or a pressure gun. Standard lubricant fittings may be used in place of the lubricant screw without need of an adapter.
To lubricate the Homestead Lubricated Plug Valve, simply:
Use only the suggested Homestead Lubricant.
Unless lubricant number or service conditions are given on order valves shipped from the factory will be filled with 650 lubricant. Before putting valve into service, fill with proper lubricant until valve is completely purged. Continue to feed new lubricant into valve until no trace of assembly lubricant can be seen around stem.
