Tecalemit's original lever gun has a solid forged brass head and precision ground piston to eliminate the need for 'O'Ring seals which wear and tear ultimately resulting in messy leakage, loss of pressure and the need to replace them.
Fitted with a fill and bleed nipple this gun is suited to bulk or cartridge mode operation, accepting all standard 450g cartridge designs.
The barrel design features a coarse machined thread to eliminate cross threading, a strong one piece follower rod with keyhole lock for safety and reliability and a 'flip-over' follower assembly that converts from cartridge to bulk mode without the need for disassemby.
Delivery pressure varies with the strength of the operator but this gun typically delivers 7500 psi grease pressure.
The TEC450 is the professional's lever gun, used in the mining industry, by primary producers and others who know that equipment reliability relies on reliable lubrication equipment.
Tecalemit has been a name synonymous with lubrication equipment since the 1920's, and commenced manufacturing operations in Australia in the early 1940's.
Since then Tecalemit in Australia has undergone changes of ownership, operating today as a division of Cooper Standard Automotive, one of the world's leading manufacturers of Automotive Fluid Systems. Tecalemit in Australia is no longer related to businesses in other parts of the world still using the Tecalemit name.
Famous for products like grease guns and grease nipples, Tecalemit's range of lubrication products extends much further into sophisticated centralised lubrication systems for fixed and mobile plant in mining, steel plants, power generation, processing plants, and other primary industries, in fact any industry that relies on effective lubrication as a mission critical maintenance process.
