L.B. Foster Company: MotorPump™ and Clean Hands Type Tank

L.B. Foster Company


The MotorPump™ is a hydraulically powered rotary motor driving a meshed gear grease pump and is part of the company's 761 Hydraulube® and is available in retrofit kit form. It pumps so that most of the grease is redirected back to the tank via bypass control regulator that is designed to enable precise control of grease output to the trackside lubricant applicators. The low-pressure system requires almost no maintenance, the company says. The company offers a number of different grease tank designs in a variety of sizes. All tanks feature a “clean hands” compartment that houses the MotorPump hydraulic fluid reservoir and grease bypass control regulator in a grease-free environment that provides easy access.
