Add reliability to your lubrication program with single-point lubricators
Incorrect or inadequate lubrication results in equipment damage that can lead to breakdown. In many cases, single-point lubricators are the solution to this problem. Lubrication Engineers is a Perma authorized distributor. With Perma single-point lubricators filled with LE lubricants, you can deliver the right lubricant, in the right amount, to the right place, at the right time - 24/7. Perma single-point lubricators filled with LE lubricants help eliminate costly routine manual lubrication. They literally pay for themselves by reducing labor costs, downtime, parts costs, and lubricant and machine contamination issues - all while increasing the safety levels of your operation.
Perma single-point lubricators:
- Ensure critical applications receive lubricant 24/7
- Eliminate application of the wrong lubricant, avoiding costly cross-contamination issues
- Eliminate under- or over-application of lubricant
- Increase safety levels with installation in hard-to-access locations
- Hermetically seal lubrication points, keeping dust and moisture out of the equipment
Perma single-point lubricators are rugged, durable and easy to install. They are perfect for mining operations, steel manufacturers, power plants, water and wastewater treatment facilities, cement plants, food processing plants, and manufacturing facilities of all types. Perma single-point lubricators are installed on millions of roller and slide bearings, blowers and fans, chains, pumps, presses, motors, open gears, and conveyors across the globe.

The prerequisite for trouble-free operation is the uninterrupted supply of sufficient, fresh lubricant to all lubrication points. The Perma Classic single-point lubricator delivers with its rugged metal housing and consistent performance, perfect for any type of industrial use. Millions of these are in use worldwide.
The Perma Futura single-point lubricator is ideally suited to high-corrosion, high-humidity and high-contamination environments. Its durable sealed plastic housing allows for visual inspection of the lubricant volume. The Futura is perfect for industrial applications that require hygiene or where harsh conditions exist in which metal cannot be used.
Activator selection options for Classic and Futura lubricators
Both the Classic and Futura lubricators discharge lubricant based on an electrochemical reaction that is created after the activator screws have been placed in the units. Depending on your application's requirement, you may choose to discharge 120cc in a period of 1, 3, 6 or 12 months. The activator screw generates pressure that moves the piston forward and continuously injects small lubricant amounts into the lubrication point.
The all-in-one Perma Flex lubricator is ready to use out of the box, requiring no assembly or special tools. The Flex is extremely versatile - or flexible - in its capabilities. It can be mounted upside down. It performs reliably in extremely moist and dirty areas (protection class IP 68), as well as in cold and hot environments of -20°C up to +60°C (-4°F to +140°F).
There are no activator screws with the Perma Flex; it comes with a rotary switch. It is this simple: Unpack it, turn the rotary switch to the desired discharge period (from 1 to 12 months), and screw the unit into your lubrication point. The discharge can be changed anytime after activation. If machine shutdowns occur, the Flex can be turned off and reactivated when needed, offering flexibility for the operation.
Perma Nova lubricators can be used for all applications that are within a temperature range of -20°C up to 60°C (-4°F up to 140°F). No activation screws are needed, and programming the discharge period of one to 12 months is easy.
The discharge period is programmed by selecting the desired interval and pushing a button located at the top of the unit. The Nova has a built-in temperature sensor that 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. If machine shutdowns occur, the Nova can be turned off and reactivated when needed, offering flexibility for the operation.
Reorder Nova lubricant cup
After the lubricant is discharged from the Nova unit, you do not have to order another complete unit. Instead, just order a Nova LC Kit (includes lubricant cartridge with installed battery) and reuse the Nova Control Unit.
The Star Vario lubricator is fully automatic, temperature-independent and perfect for applications that require precise lubricant metering. It is the preferred unit for electric motors requiring very specific relubrication amounts. It is also preferred for most sliding bearings, sliding guides, open gears, gear racks, spindles, shaft seals, and chains. The LCD display is easy to read and displays operation status. The rate of lubricant discharge can be changed at any time. The reusable drive unit with battery pack provides visible LED lights that signal functions and errors.
