This Alemite B337595-B1 grease gun hose extension is made of thermoplastic material, has a 1/8" NPTF (National Pipe Thread Fuel) male end, and is used to extend a grease gun to reach grease fittings that are otherwise difficult to get to. Made of thermoplastic material for strength and resistance to corrosion and with an overall length of 18", it is capable of a working pressure of 6,000 pounds per square inch (psi) with a burst pressure of 12,000 psi. This hose extension is for use only with hand-operated Alemite grease gun models and should not to be used with power-operated models. This extension hose fits onto the outlets of grease guns that inject grease into standard grease fittings and are used for applications such as lubricating motor vehicles, construction and industrial equipment, and aeronautics.
Oil and grease guns are handheld tools that inject lubricant (dispensed from the barrel or cylinder cartridge) into metal mechanical assemblies. Electric and air-powered grease guns can dispense large volumes of lubricant in commercial applications, while battery-powered (cordless) grease guns are more suitable for mobile and remote applications. Manual grease guns (lever, pistol-grip, screw-type, push-type, and suction) vary in duty and have either a rigid or flexible hose extension for attaching nozzles or a nozzle with coupler for standard grease fittings. Oil and grease guns are used in a broad variety of applications including vehicles of all types, construction equipment, factory and agricultural machinery, and aeronautics, among others.
Alemite manufactures lubrication and fluid handling systems and components. The company, founded in 1918, is headquartered in Fort Mill, SC.
