Trico's Opto-Matic Constant Level Oiler has been an industry standard
for more than 75 years maintaining the correct oil levels all over the
world. This product was originally created to increase machine
reliability; too much oil creates heat and promotes oil degradation,
while not enough lubricant will cause an early machine failure. Not much
has changed, until now, with the introduction of Trico's Opto Laser
Level http://www.tricocorp.com/products/product.aspx?c=1&p=109 .
This innovative product was initially created to install and se

accurately and in a timely manner, but has an alternative use as an inspection
device. Many times, Opto-Matic Oilers are improperly installed, and in some
cases improperly used; however the new Opto Laser Level tool can help
overcome these issues.
The Opto Laser Level is a new tool that can be added to any reliability
tool box and can make an immediate impact on your lubrication program
* No confusion as to where the oil level measurements are made.
* Adjustments are made precisely with a visual verification of oil setting.
* Can be used quickly to verify existing oil level set ups.
* Sets the level adjuster automatically.
* Makes installation easier in hard to reach places such as low to the ground, above the head situations or even in spaces with limited room caused by obstructions of other equipment.
* It's compact, easy-to-use and reusable so that you can make adjustments on multiple Opto-Matic's previously installed or when you purchase new ones.
To set-up an Opto-Matic Oiler, it is important to make sure that the
unit is plumb (mounted upright and true). A small angle incurred during
installation will alter the level of oil within the pump or bearing
housing itself. The component that sets the overall oil level within the
bearing housing is called the level adjuster (spider). The level
adjuster (spider) is an often misunderstood part inside the Opto-Matic
that has two small, threaded bars that lock together creating a ledge
that positions the reservoir in the correct position. The Opto Laser
Level has a traditional spirit level bubble indicator to insure the
oiler's bottom casting is plumb, and a laser level which projects on to
the pump or bearing housing to aid in setting the level adjuster
(spider) to the correct height. The correct height in often cast into
the pump or bearing housing itself, or can be determined through the O&M

Due to its' compact size and ease of use, this tool is a must for every
maintenance department that is responsible for the set-up and
maintenance of any equipment that uses Opto-Matic Oilers. Not only will
this tool speed-up the installation and replacement of Opto-Matic
Oilers, but will be another tool in the Reliability Toolbox.
