WORKBENCH TANKS Tanks FOR LOW VOLUME LOCAL LUBRICANT DISPENSING
Designed for locations where the lubricant is required at a couple of adjacent locations, FLO can provide complete multipurpose oil bench tank units customized to your specific shop requirements. Ideal for motor oil and hydraulic oils in busy garages and shops, customers can specify one or more baffles for multiple lubricants and process liquids. Other options include pumping directly from the bench tank, mounting a vice on the optional integrated bracket plus a variety of tank sizes and a wide selection of Pumps, Hose Reels and Dispense Valves to choose from.
These tanks meet or exceeds ULC S142.18 regulations. An innovative protection plate is integrated into the top cover separating the tanks work area from the flanges.
MOBILE LUBE SKIDS FOR ONSITE LUBE SERVICE
Lube skids are an alternative to using dedicated lube trucks or lube trailers for onsite service. Lube skids are self-contained units, that include both oil storage containers for fresh oil and collection tanks for used fluids. They can be easily loaded, transported on a flatbed or in the bed of a pickup and unloaded as required, or they can be integrated into a box truck or crane body truck. Lube skids allow mechanics and operators to complete fluid top-ups, emergency maintenance or primary lubrication (if only small volumes required), in the field.
Lube skids reduce costs associated with equipment downtime, improve productivity by keeping equipment and employees working, and reduce transportation cost by eliminating the need to pull equipment out of the field to service it.

Stackable Bulk Fluid Storage Tanks
Bulk liquid storage and handling solutions for any application that requires reliable, clean, safe and efficient fluid control. Each fluid storage system can be configured with multiple tanks to handle multiple fluids, and can be equipped with add-on features such as tank-mounted dispense packages, specialty pumps, dispense guns, portable tank platforms, steel cages, secondary containment vessels, oil filtration units and more. These tanks are constructed from virgin polyethylene UL rated food grade resins and are designed for use with polyethylene tolerant fluids.
THE COMPONENTS IN THE SOLUTIONS…. PUMPS, REELS, DISPENSE METERS, CONTROL VALVES & PORTABLE WASTE OIL DRAINS
Lincoln PowerMaster, High-Volume, Heavy-Duty Family of Pumps are state of the art pumps with completely pneumatic, modular air motors and 6″ stroke pumps for greater material output. Both air and hydraulically operated models are available to fit any drum, pail or tank. Multiple ratios offer the greatest range of precise combination of volume and pressure to meet your application requirement. The full 6″ stroke delivers excellent volume with fewer pump cycles. Air motors are available in 3″, 4″, 6″, 8″ or 10″ (76mm, 101mm, 152mm, 203mm or 254mm) diameters.
The PMV family of oil and grease pumps represents 100 years of high-quality engineering technology and manufacturing. The unique, modular design of these pumps includes precision-machined parts made with durable aircraft aluminum less susceptible to temperature than plastic spools, allowing for a longer pump life. The air control module is fastened by four bolts for quick in-field repair. It runs without external lubrication reducing cost of ownership and maintenance. Designed to work with wet, contaminated, dirty air supply, these pumps come with a special 5-year limited warranty.
Hose Reels – One For Every Application
The Lincoln Fluid Reel Series (LFR) is engineered for exceptional, consistent, repetitive performance and is ideal for use in lower volume / lighter traffic applications and on bench tanks. Backed by a 5-year limited warranty, these reels are available in Low-, medium- and high-pressure models. Each features dual needle bearings to reduce the stress on the spring, providing smooth, balanced operation during both hose extension and retraction. Double ratchet teeth provide a solid latch to lock hose in multiple usable positions.
The Heavy-Duty Series reels are the finest Lincoln lube reels ever designed. Years of engineering, testing and experience preceded their introduction. Years of exceptional performance in the most demanding environments have proven their value. Reel assemblies are available in standard 30′, 40′, 50′ and 60′ hose lengths and feature a ball bearing inlet swivel design, quarter-inch thick steel welded base and roller outlet arm. Extra-Heavy-Duty Reels for applications that require longer hose length are also available to work with hose lengths up to 75′.
Garage Fluid Control Valves & Dispensing Meters
Fleet maintenance and vehicle oil change and service facilities require tools that withstand rugged and frequent use without sacrificing accuracy and accountability. Grease, air, oil, water, ATF, hydraulic fluids or antifreeze – Lincoln control valves and dispensing meters handle it all to keep things flowing smoothly. Lincoln meters feature a unique design to allow exceptionally high flow rates. Coupled with high 1,500 psi operating pressure, these meters reduce dispense time while improving productivity and user safety. The Fluid Meter Series enhances safety with working pressures 50 percent higher than other meters. Offered in electronic and mechanical models, the meters are available with rigid or flexible hose extensions and feature an ergonomic design for operator comfort. All units have a ball-bearing swivel and a removable filter screen to capture contaminants and are covered by a 5-year warranty.
Used Fluid (Waste Oil) Receivers
Utilizing a relatively new concept in used fluid handling, the “drain and pressurize” method of the Lincoln waste oil receiver employs the benefits of the “drain and evacuate” system without an evacuation pump – the fluid drain is pressurized to evacuate the used fluid.
