Grease Gun Kit for Powerex SLAE Oil Free Scroll Compressor Pumps (IP616201AJ)
This is an OEM Powerex grease gun kit that is used on their bare SLAE scroll air compressor pumps. Powerex manufacturers the highest quality scroll pumps on the market and the internal bearings are regreasable to extend the compressor life. Powerex grease is specifically designed for their oil free scroll pumps. Using an aftermarket grease will cause a pre-mature failure of the compressor.
Included in this kit is the grease gun, grease, and two nozzles that are specifically designed to be used on their scroll compressor pumps. One nozzle attaches to the gun as a grease extension. The second nozzle is only used if you use the "C" style scroll pump manufactured prior to 10/2006. You must remember to apply grease to the OS bearing and pin crank bearings. Each pump of the grease gun equals 0.65 g of grease. Please consult your service manual for the correct number of pumps from the gun to ensure proper grease delivery. 80 grams of grease are included in this kit which is typically enough for two pumps
On standard pressure models designed to run at 116psi the bearings should be re-greased every 10,000 hours. Higher pressure models require the bearings to be regreased every 5,000 hours. Since higher pressure models generate more heat when running at higher pressure they must be serviced on a regular basis.
IP616201AJ is most commonly used on the SLAE03E, SLAE05E, and SLAE05EHP scroll compressor pumps.
When re-greasing the bearings it is also recommended to replace the tip seals. The tip seal set for the SLAE05E scroll pump is 92832070 and the tip seal kit on the higher pressure 145psi SLAE05EHP model is 92832080
