These machines are available for either single or double worker operation at a speed of 60 strokes per minute, the number of strokes being continuously indicated by an automatically indexing counter. The counter can be preset for any number of strokes, the counting gear automatically disengages the indexing contact to stop the machine. Since the handles of workers for use in grease working machines have to be designed to form a bearing, only specifically constructed grease workers can be used.
The grease worker is intended for use with the penetration tests conforming to FTM 791-313 specifications. This worker is similar in its dimensions to the one specified by ASTM D 217-DIN 51 804-IP 50 but equipped with a plunger plate having 270 ( 1/16' dia.) holes.
