Bubble Crusher - AST Series

The AST Series Bubble Crusher is an IHI Proprietary Grease Agitation and Circulation System.

Patent acquired (PAT. No. 4951546)
Are you troubled with No dispensing caused by air bubbles in the grease?
Air bubbles in grease cause No dispensing from the dispenser (Precise Fluid Dispenser).
Are you troubled with operation defects caused by oil separation?
Oil separation in grease causes unevenness in the concentration of included solid particles.
This leads to grease pump and dispenser (Precise Fluid Dispenser) malfunction.
Are you troubled with disposal of residual grease?
Use of collected residual grease results in air mixed in the grease.
Grease disposal that remains in a pail requires cost for industrial waste treatment.
Improve matters by innovating the bubble crusher (circulation system) to the dispensing line.
Recycle of disposed grease by innovating the bubble crusher (circulation system) (Reduces disposal costs.)
