Anatomy of a Grease Gun

  • The lever is used in manual configurations of the grease gun for hand-pumping the grease from the barrel to the hose or tube.
  • The trigger and handle are used in manual configurations of the grease gun for hand-pumping the grease from the barrel to the hose or tube in a similar way as the lever.
  • The barrel is the exoskeleton of the grease gun that houses either the grease tube or the grease supplied from bulk storage.
  • The grease tube (or cartridge) is an inserted housing of grease that is replaceable when grease is depleted.
  • The hydraulic coupler (or connector) is the connection point that holds the hose or fixed tube attached to the head of the grease gun.
  • The head of the grease gun contains grease pathways and valves that allow the pumping of grease to travel from the barrel into the flexible hose or fixed tube.
  • The filler nipple is the injection point for grease from a filler pump.
  • The air-release nipple allows air to escape after new grease has been added to the grease gun and pumped into the head.
  • The spring provides the pressure onto the plunger.
  • The follower rod (piston rod, barrel rod, plunger rod) helps the plunger follow a uniform path as it keeps pressure on the bottom end of the grease tube. It also acts in pulling back the spring prior to inserting a new grease tube.
  • The follower handle offers a grip when pulling the follower rod prior to inserting a new grease tube.
  • The plunger provides uniform pressure to the back end of the grease tube as grease is depleted.
  • The flexible hose is used interchangeably with a fixed tube for flexible positioning of the connector or coupler.
  • The fixed tube is a rigid form of a flexible hose.
  • Connectors, Adapters and Couplers

    A grease gun may come with the standard connection adapter such as a hydraulic coupler, but there are several variations depending on the application. The standard hydraulic coupler is the most commonly used and most applicable. A 90-degree adapter is ideal for fittings in confined areas that require a 90-degree bend. A needle-end adapter provides a thin, precise amount of grease for tight places, while a three-jaw swivel coupler offers a variety of locking positions for different applications.

    Flexible Hose versus Fixed Tube

    The decision to use a flexible hose or a fixed tube depends on the machine’s grease-fitting type and ease of location, as well as the type of grease gun used. For example, a hard-to-reach location would benefit from a flexible tube. On the other hand, lever-style grease guns require both hands to pump the grease and would favor the fixed-tube alternative.

    Grease gun accessories

    Grease gun meters can be retrofitted onto a grease gun to help optimize lubricant consumption. Plastic caps provide benefits such as preventing corrosion and debris. They also can be color-coded so that cross-contamination does not occur. Other accessories such as sonic/ultrasonic devices are also available.
