Madison-Kipp Lubricators are built on one standard design, of
any required size and number of feed outlets, and are applied
universally to all types of steam, oil and gas engines, steam
pumps, air compressors, steam hammers, shovels, dredges and cranes,
marine engines, steering engines, drilling engines, agricultural
tractors, grain separators, machine tools and special types of
The sight-feed type is built with a visible feed and an
individual fine adjustment for each pumping unit. The Blind Feed
type is designed for service where the adjustment and visible feed

employing different lengths on the ratchet arm.
Madison-Kipp Lubricators are built on the Kipp Valveless
principle, which permits the pumping and forcing of oil without the
use of ball and spring valves.
