Abstract (en)

The device for the distribution of lubricant in a grooved rail has an elongated plate (6) in the rail groove and which has cut-outs (22,23) preferably along both longitudinal edges (24,25) and edge-open, and into which lubricant is fed. The cut-outs in the plate are covered by a cover plate (7) which preferably is elastically constructed at least in the overlap area. An I-section plate (8) is fitted over the cover plate and the width (s) of the web (8a) corresponds to the minimum distance (a) between the oppositely disposed cut-outs in the elongated plate. An Independent claim is included for a device for the feed of lubricant to delivery openings comprising a stack of plates with distribution slots and holes and which are fixed in the bottom of the rail groove.
