Luneta, which develops advanced machinery lubricant inspection technology for machine condition monitoring and reliability, announces the launch of the Hub. The Hub is a multiport adapter which allows easy installation of oil level sight glasses, bottom sediment and water (BS&W) bowls, drain valves, quick connects for attaching filtration equipment, etc. In addition to four lateral ports, the Hub features a recessed oil sampling port to prevent inadvertent impacts. The hub is ideal for equipment with limited or inaccessible fluid port locations.
The Hub features an innovative design allowing for easy installation. The zinc-plated steel back plate threads easily into the equipment’s port. The aluminum body slides onto the back plate and can be adjusted every 45-degrees to achieve optimal orientation. Then simply secure it in place with the supplied bolts.
“The Hub is a tremendously versatile product, providing reliability professionals infinite possibilities at a single location on their machine,” said Luneta CEO Tom Fitch. “We see this as an exciting continuation of Luneta’s vision to enhance machine reliability through the development of groundbreaking inspection technologies.”
The company’s technology is designed primarily for the heavy machinery market (OEM and aftermarket) used largely in process plants including petrochemical, power generation, primary metals, food processing, mining, pulp and paper, pharmaceutical, and cement manufacturing.
