Perma Nova

Perma Nova
perma NOVA can be used for all applications that are within a temperature range of -20°C up to 60°C (-4°F up to 140°F). A discharge period of 1 to 12 months can be easily programmed by pushing the selection button on the NOVA control unit. A built-in temperature sensor periodically measures the ambient temperature and the control unit calculates the required gas generation based on this data. This ensures a continuous and controlled discharge. perma NOVA consists of a reusable control unit, a lubricant canister filled with 130cc of grease or oil and a protection cover.

product Overview

Product Characteristics

  • Electronic control unit with integrated temperature compensation
  • LED display with push button control
  • Application temperature tange from -20° to 60° C / -4° to 140° F
  • Intrinsically safe IP 65 protection


  • Temperature independent discharge during the entire discharge period
  • Quick first discharge (within one day)
  • Reusable control unit
  • Discharge settings from 1 to 12 months
  • Discharge period can be changed anytime
  • Discharge setting and function is always displayed
  • Developed for applications with considerable temperature variations
  • Can be used in areas where explosive atmospheres may occur (Ex-certification)
  • Dust and water jet proof


  • Ambient temperature does not need to be taken into consideration when setting the discharge period
  • Simple handling and setting adjustment
  • Broad range of dispensing rate settings to suit equipment demands or planned maintenance cycles
  • Provides higher performance capabilities at sites which require intrinsically safe equipment
  • Reliable operation in critical areas


perma NOVA is especially suitable for single-point lubrication of roller and sliding bearings, shaft seals and chains located in areas with considerable temperature variations (e.g. food industry) or where intrinsic safety is a requirement (e.g. oil and gas industry).

How does the NOVA work?

Short-circuiting of the two terminals (anode+ and cathode-) will activate the cell and produce hydrogen gas. The required gas amount for a certain period is determined via the electrical resistor. A microcontroller opens and closes the electric circuit. When the circuit is closed, gas is generated. The microcontroller processes the entered discharge period and the measured temperature.

This data is used to calculate the required gas production.

The gas moves the piston forward and the lubricant is continuously injected into the lubrication point.
