General
Features
- compact design
The COBRA 1X is a mechanically and pneumatically
operated lubrication device for the automatic lubrication of
moving rollers or swivel pins on transport chains.
- high rigidness
- reliable functionality
Applications:
- universally applicable on diverse roller or chain belts
- Power & Free belts
- adaptation of the required injecting pressure into the
roller or pin bearing of the transport chain
- Plate conveyors (mining industry)
- Coil conveyor belts (metallurgical industry),
- Crusher discharging belts and clinker transport
(cement industry)
- Circular conveyors, vehicle transport belts
(automobile industry)
On the transport chain a lubrication system normally consists of 2 COBRA lubrication devices, one in left-hand
version and one in right-hand version.
The COBRA 1X allows for the metered application of
lubricants into linearly moving lubrication points, even if
the roller distances vary.
The disconnection is effected via a 3-way air valve. The
valve can be activated as follows:
- mechanically (standard), manually
- chain pitch
- diameter of the chain rollers
The COBRA 1X is factory-adapted to the individual design
of the transport chain. Therefore, the geometry of the
chain must not change exceeding the admissible tolerances. It is determined by the following factors:
- dimensions of the chain rollers
- lubrication points on the transport chain
The metering quantity per stroke and lubrication point (0.2
to 2.0 cm³/ stroke) can be adjusted by means of the
measuring valve (see pos. 9).
As a protection against damages, the COBRA 1X has got
a safety notch (see fig. 1, pos. 5) as well as a slewing
notch (see fig. 1, pos. 7 and 8).
- electrically (option), remote disconnection possible
Subject to modifications
- pneumatically (option), remote disconnection possible
During the operation of the COBRA 1X variations in the
running speed of the transport chain are admissible to a
limited extent. Admissible variations in the running speed
depend on the following factors:
- average speed
- Beet transport belts (sugar industry).

Preconditions
In case of unintentional pick-up of the pick-up rollers (see
page 10, fig. 4, pos. 2.1) by the transport chain
In case of a reverse movement of the transport chain
In case of a malfunction of the 5/2 way valve (see
page 13, fig. 7, pos. 13)
Function
The complete COBRA 1X is slewed out of the catchment
area of the transport chain.
As an option, this slewed position can be detected by a
proximity switch in order to provide an external control
with a signal.
Preconditions
In case the speed of the transport chain is too high
In case the actuating angle (page 13, fig. 7, pos. 4.3) has
been set wrongly.
Function
The safety notch engages into the slewed lubrication head
pick-up device and prevents it from slewing back into the
catchment area of the transport chain.
The 5/2-way valve (page 13, fig. 7, pos. 13) is thereby
actuated and drives the lubrication head pick-up device
(pos. 1 and 2) out of the catchment area of the transport
chain.
Subject to modifications
6001a02
IMPORTANT
Whenever one of the two safety functions has been applied, the COBRA 1X is out of operation.
Eliminate the cause for the activation of the safety function.
Bring the COBRA 1X back into the off position (see page 15).
Put the COBRA 1X into operation again (see page 14, chapter “Re-Start”).

Planning and Layout
Layout of the holding construction
Prepare a holding construction with sufficient stability for
fixing four screws M10 (see page 11, fig. 5: hole pitches
270 x 70 mm), where the mounting plate can be attached
to (page 6, fig. 1, pos. 8).
The holding construction must provide a horizontal and
even rest for the mounting plate.
Keep a horizontal distance of 245 ± 5 mm (page 11, fig. 5)
from the lubrication fittings of the transport chain to the
hole pattern of the mounting plate.
During the vertical positioning, consider the different distances between the fixing versions from the top and those
from the bottom (see pages 26 and 27, fig. 23 and 24).
NOTE
6001a02
Customer services of Lincoln GmbH & Co.
KG are pleased to assist you in the
planning and layout of your automated
lubrication system (address on the rear
side of this User Manual).
Positioning
To determine the position of the COBRA 1X consider the
following factors:
Positions
Position with low degree of contamination
Position with high degree of contamination:
Install dust protection observing the maximum slewing
range (dimensions, see pages 26 and 27, fig. 23 and 24).
Lubricant pump
Lubricant Supply
Synchronization
Each COBRA 1X receives a separate feed line from the
pump.
The lubricant supply to two COBRA 1X lubrication devices
of a lubrication station is effected by dividing the feed line
into two supply lines of possibly equal lengths.
Pump
The output of the pump depends on the following factors:
the number of lubrication devices
the lubricant need per operating stroke
the stroke frequency:
stroke
Establishment of a safety zone (dimensions, see
pages 26 and 27, fig. 23 and 24).
Lubrication devices COBRA 1X
Feed Lines
The layout of the lubricant lines to provide the lubrication
devices with lubricant depends on:
the distance between the pump and the lubrication station
the viscosity of the lubricant
the required output
the minimum temperature expectation
IMPORTANT
6001a02
As the lubrication devices are to operate
simultaneously, there may occur a strong
short-term increase of lubricant
consumption.
Therefore, install a flexible hydraulic hose
on the lubricant inlet of each COBRA 1X.
Thanks to the flexibility of the hose walls,
an increased lubricant consumption can be
covered temporarily (accumulator effect).
NOTE
If mineral oils or fluid greases (NLGI 000
and 00) are used, differences in the line
lengths are insignificant.
Subject to modifications
Opposite positioning of two synchronized operating lubrication devices (example, see fig. 3) in order to avoid a
horizontal excursion of the conveyor belt.
Positioning of the lubrication devices:
Choose a running section of the transport belt where the
smallest horizontal (max. ±5 mm) and vertical variations
(max. ±1.5 mm) are expected.
If the variations of the transport belt are too big, the transport rollers must be guided (see page 10, chapter “Guidance of the conveyor belt“).

- End of the lubrication procedure (see page 18)
- Pull-back movement (see page 19)
- Waiting position (see page 16)
- Start of the pick-up phase and lubrication phase (see

Lubricant lines:
Bmetering chamber
- white: without pressure
- light-grey: pump pressure

At the end of the pick-up and lubrication phase (see
pages 17 and 18) the COBRA 1X is ready for lubrication.
The nozzle coupler (pos. 1.1) is pressed onto the lubrication fitting (pos. A) of a chain roller and moves the control
piston (pos. 1.5) back.
Thus the lubricant line towards the metering chamber is
closed and the supply line towards the nozzle coupler
(pos. 1) is opened.
The output capacity of the pump (pos. P) presses the
premetered output quantity to the nozzle coupler (pos.
1.1.) via the supply piston (pos. 1.6).
At the beginning of the pull-back movement the nozzle
coupler (pos. 1.1) frees itself from the lubrication fitting of
the chain roller.
The compression springs (pos. 1.6 and 1.7) press the
lubrication head rod (pos. 1.3) and control piston (pos.
1.5) back into their end positions.
Then another metering is initiated.

If the supply speed of the transport chain exceeds the fastest
lubrication cycle sequence of the COBRA 1X, only every
second or third chain roller must be lubricated. This results in
the following cycle of operating states:
1. off position (see page 15)
2. waiting position (see page 16)
3. pick-up phase and lubrication phase (see page 17)
4. end of lubrication phase (see page 18)
5. pull-back movement (see page 19)
6. waiting position (see page 16)
7. off position (see page 15)
8. waiting position, etc.
The duration of the off positions must be actuated by means
of an external control via the 3/2-way valve (pos. 14).
Depending on the adjustment of the actuating angle (see
page 13, fig. 7, pos. 4.3), the throttle check valve (pos. 15)
and the control sensory mechanism every sixth operating
state (6. = waiting position) can be suppressed.
Termination of readiness for operation
When switching off the air supply via the 3/2-way valve
the COBRA 1X changes into the off position (see page
15).
Thereby the compression springs (pos. 1.2 and 2.3) remove the lubrication head (pos. 1) and the pick-up arm
from the transport chain.
The pick-up rollers (see page 19, pos. 2.1) are out of the
catchment area of the chain rollers (see page 19, fig. 18,
pos. A).
IMPORTANT
The lubrication procedure is incomplete if
the supply piston (pos. 1.6) could not reach
its final position (see control pin, page 14,
fig. 8, pos. 1.9) in time.
Reduce the output (see page 14) so
that the supply stroke can be completed within the lubrication phase (see
page 17).
Shorten the lubrication pauses of the
transport chain accordingly.

Maintenance
NOTE
6001a02
Whenever work is performed on the centralized lubrication system, special attention should be paid to absolute cleanliness.
Dirt will cause failure of the system.
IMPORTANT
To clean the system, use petroleum spirit
or petroleum. Do not use Tri, Per or similar
solvents or polar or organic solvents such
as alcohol, methanol, acetone, etc.
Repairs
Protect the COBRA 1X against serious contamination,
excessive influence of liquids or humidity and falling objects.
Lubricate the sliding surfaces of the COBRA 1X at the
latest after 50,000 lubrication strokes or at least five times
a year.
- Sliding surfaces are found:
on the lubrication head (page 29, pos. 1)
on the pick-up arm (pos. 2)
on the bearings of the slewing cranks (pos. 4.1)
- For this purpose use commercial machine oil for sliding
surfaces.
- Differentiate between the friction pairings steel-steel
and steel-plastic.
Functional Test
For repair works on the lubrication device use only original
Lincoln spare parts.
In case of warranty or for bigger repairs, send the lubrication device to the manufacturer.
Contact:
See rear side of this User Manual.
When lubrication is active (see pages 15 to 20):
During the pull-back movement (see page 19) a short
drop in pressure can be stated on the pressure gauge of
the lubricant supply.
The functioning of the COBRA X1 can be controlled via
the movement of the metering pin (see page 20, pos. 1.9).
Check whether the nozzle coupler (see page 20, pos.
1.1.) contacts the lubrication fitting centrically. Make sure
that no lubricant leaks out during the lubrication phase
(see page 17).
Carry out a spot check to verify the proper condition of the
lubrication fittings on the transport chain.

6.3A-18003-A04
Remedy
Wrong COBRA 1X mounting position
Check the COBRA 1X mounting position and correct if necessary (see pages 11 and 12, items 1 to 4).
Wrong distance between pick-up rollers (pos. 2.1) and
lubrication head (pos. 1)
Correct distance by adjusting the pick-up arm (pos. 2.6; see
page 12, “Adjust distance nozzle coupler – pick-up rollers).
Lubrication fitting is not positioned in the center of the chain Make sure to adjust the chain roller accordingly.
roller
Chain rollers have different diameters
The transport chain must be equipped with chain rollers of
equal diameters by the user of the system.

Troubleshooting, continuation
6.3A-18003-A04
Fault: Lubricant leaks out between the nozzle coupler (pos. 1.1) on the lubrication head (pos. 1) and the lubrication
fitting on the chain roller
Cause:
Remedy:
The nozzle coupler (pos. 1.1) does not hit the lubrication
fitting of the chain roller in its center
Pressure force of the nozzle coupler (pos. 1.1) to the lubri- Check inlet pressure and correct if necessary (see page 25,
chapter “Technical Data“).
cation fitting of the chain roller is too little
Lubrication fitting of the chain roller is damaged and/ or
clogged
Fault:
roller
The user must ensure to bring the lubrication fittings into full
working order.
Pick-up rollers (pos. 2.1) don’t go into the catchment area of the transport chain right before each chain
Cause:
See fault “Nozzle coupler (pos. 1.1) does not hit the lubrication fitting of the chain roller“.
Remedy:
Moving procedure too slow
Verify inlet pressure and correct if necessary (see page 25,
chapter “Technical Data”).
Increase reverse travel speed (see page 13, item 6).
Reduce swiveling distance of the slewing cranks (pos. 4.1;
see page 13, item 5).
Slewing cranks (pos. 4.1) go into the safety notch (pos. 5)
Cause:
Remedy:
Swiveling distance of the slewing cranks (pos. 4.1) is too
big
Fault:
COBRA swivels against the proposed supply direction of the transport chain (see pos. 7 and 8)
Cause:
Remedy:
Wrong chain running direction
Fault:
Remedy:
Slewing cranks (pos. 4.1) engaged in the safety notch
(pos. 5)
5/2-way valve (pos. 13) does not actuate
Fault:
The user of the system must ensure the correct chain running direction.
COBRA swivels in the proposed supply direction of the transport chain (see pos. 7 and 8)
Cause:
Reduce swiveling distance of the slewing cranks (pos. 4.1;
see page 13, item 5).
Check the actuating angle (pos. 4.3) as well as position and
function of the 5/2-way valve (pos. 13): if the slewing cranks
(pos. 4.1) are positioned in the safety notch (pos. 5), the
5/2-way valve (pos. 13) must actuate reliably.
Lubricant leaks from the relief valve (pos. 16)
Cause:
Remedy:
Pump pressure is too high
Adjust pump pressure (see page 24, chapter “Technical
Data”).
Relief valve (pos. 16) defective or contaminated
Replace relief valve (pos. 16).
