Flood Control Model NLS-3-FC

Model NLS-3-FC with water sensor kit - if flood water or liquids rise, the power to the oil return pump system is broken until manually reset when no liquid is present and system is clean - prevents contaminants from entering elevator hydraulic system.


Oil collected at the jack head drains back under gravity, and is filtered through a cleanable screen at the tank. The tank holds 3 gallons of oil. A float in the tank starts the pump when the oil level rises, stopping when it falls. The sealed pump forces the oil through a check valve, and tubing to the elevator hydraulic oil reservoir.

If flood water should rise in the pit, the automatic safety control senses the presence of water, shutting doen the pump, so no oil or water is pumped until the pit is dry. After the sump system is checked, made free of water, and the safety switch manually unlatched, the pump may be put back into service.

Tank Heaters

Nylube didn't invent the Hydraulic Oil Tank Heater. We heard your complaints about what was available and the price the existing models cost. So, we did what we do. If we can find a way to create a better product at a lower cost, we will. If not, we won't. We don't have to have every product you might ever need. We need to have the products we can make better than anyone else, at a cost that makes you competitive. 

We make a standard product for service, and we make custom heaters for OEMs. Give us a call and find out how Nylube can provide you the product you need at the price you hoped for.

Tank Coolers

Save hundreds or even thousands on high temperature oil problems. Designed for applications where peak usage causes heat and hydraulic breakdowns. Nylube's Tank Cooler is a low cost alternative to expensive, plumbed-in heat exchangers. Make no mistake, this does not perform like the multi-thousand dollar models which will solve any problem no matter how severe. This model simply avoids the need to spend that much money when the heat problem is minor or temporary.
