Introducing the perma NOVA...
the first temperature independent electrochemical lubrication system!
perma NOVA can be used for all applications that are within a temperature range of -4 °F up to 140 °F. A discharge period of 1 to 12 months can be easily programmed by pushing the selection button on the NOVA control unit. A built-in temperature sensor periodically measures the ambient temperature and the control unit calculates the required gas generation based on this data. This ensures a continuous and controlled discharge. perma NOVA consists of a reusable control unit, a lubricant canister filled with 130cc of grease or oil, and a protection cover.
How does it work?
Short-circuiting of the two terminals (anode+ and cathode-) will activate the cell and produce hydrogen gas. The required gas amount for a certain period is determined via the electrical resistor. A microcontroller opens and closes the electric circuit. When the circuit is closed, gas is generated. The microcontroller processes the entered discharge period and the measured temperature. This data is used to calculate the required gas production. The gas moves the piston forward and the lubricant is continuously injected into the lubrication point.
