Therefore, every chassis lubrication point will receive one shot of lubricant in this distance. When the individual lubrication pump unit's primary plunger is in its outermost position, oil surrounding the barrel will enter the inlet port, filling the space between the two plungers. As the cam rotates and the lobe lifts the primary plunger, it cuts off the inlet port. Further plunger rise will partially push out the secondary plunger and so open the check valve. Pressurised oil will then pass between the loose fitting secondary plunger and barrel to lubricate the chassis moving part it services (Fig.

30 Airdromic automatic chassis lubrication system 35 able to slip over one or more of the ratchet teeth to take up a new position. The net result of the power cylinder being charged and discharged with compressed air is a slow but progressive rotation of the camshaft (Fig. 30). A typical worm drive shaft to distance travelled relationship is 500 revolutions per 1 km. For 900 worm drive shaft revolutions the pumping cam revolves once. Therefore, every chassis lubrication point will receive one shot of lubricant in this distance.

30) This unit comprises a cylinder and spring-loaded air operated piston which is mounted on the front face of the pump assembly housing, the piston rod being connected indirectly to the drive shaft ratchet wheel by way of a ratchet housing and pawl. Oil unloader valve (Fig. 30) This consists of a shuttle valve mounted on the front of the pump assembly housing. The oil unloader valve allows air pressure to flow to the power unit for the power stroke. During the exhaust stroke, however, when air flow is reversed and the shuttle valve is lifted from its seat, any oil in the line between the power unit and the oil unloader valve is then discharged to atmosphere.
