A 24-Vdc electric-powered grease lubricator greases heavy-duty equipment without tapping into hydraulic or pneumatic lines. The KPL-24 sets up easily and fits directly onto a 5-gallon grease pail (a 16-gallon version is also available). It works with a hose reel and hand grease gun, and can be used stand-alone or with a centralized lubrication system. Weighing just 24 lbs (34% less than competitor models), the KPL-24 resists tipping and transports easily for long-term operation. The unit’s metal follower plate features Buna N wiping seals rather than being a solid piece of Buna N fastened to a coupling. The follower plate works in straight or tapered pails, and ensures the complete removal of grease from a container. The pump can refill automated lubrication systems inside wind turbines or act as the driving pump behind the system. Its maximum discharge pressure of 4,061 psi is one of the industry’s highest. Discharge volume is 80 to 120 grams/min in continuous operation and 70 to 80 grams/min in 30-minute periods. The unit has a vibration resistance of 4G. Operating temperatures range from 14 to 104°F.

please advise if 110 or 220V AC is also available and provide pricing
Paul Dvorak says
I don’t think so because the pump is intended for use in a nacelle even though 110V might be available there. However, to be sure, contact the manufacturer. There are likely to be other models.
