Hydraulic-Type Grease Nipples according

UMETA hydraulic grease nipples according to DIN 71412

– standard made of steel, case hardened

– zinc-plated and passivated

– with tapered thread

With the Umeta SafeLube-system

you are always on the safe side due to:

  • special designed springs
  • specific interior geometry
  • high-quality balls
  • inhouse case hardening according to DIN

make our grease nipples

  • extremely leakproof and you avoid unnecessary loss of grease
  • durably and wear-resistant
  • permeable, even under high pressure

. . . and therefore simply a good choice!


UMETA hydraulic-type nipples are suitable for all standard lubrication points, which have to be frequently lubricated in a reliably way. Due to their multi-purpose field of application, they are the most commonly used types of grease nipples.



In general, our hydraulic-type grease nipples according to DIN are made of steel, case-hardened, zinc-plated and passivated, and they are featured with a tapered thread. The head diameter is 6.5 (-0.2) mm /0.256″ – 0.008″. For safety reasons and in order to avoid abrasion wear, the standard demands 550 HV (Vickers) as a minimum for a surface hardness. Therefore, we operate this decisive process in our own curing oven. We offer various standard types also in brass or stainless steel SST303 + SST316L (V2A/V4A). Of course, our hydraulic-type nipples are also available in different angle versions, with a self-forming thread, or as drive-in type.



Upon request, UMETA manufactures hydraulic-type nipples in other versions, with respect to e. g.

  • dimension
  • material
  • thread size
  • thread form (e. g. with cylindrical thread)
  • different opening pressure
  • surface colour (e. g. yellow passivated)
  • further surface treatment
  • unhardened
  • etc.



In order to allow for a proper lubrication with all common grease guns, the head space, which is necessary for installation, should be considered (please see table with dimensions).


As suitable lubricating nozzle, we recommend our hydraulic couplers.

UMETA TWIN-LOCK system – The life insurance for your machines and equipment

When maintaining your high quality machines and equipment, you should absolutely avoid quasi-lubrication!


What does quasi-lubrication mean?

Upon continuous operation, abrasion can easily take place between the metal piston and the metal cylinder of the grease gun. For this reason, the grease at the top of the piston can be pressed back into the cartridge at a low operating pressure without being noticed. In spite of all effort, no grease will be transported to the lubrication spot. In order not to expose your machines to this risk, we developed the UMETA TWIN-LOCK system.

In connection with two special sealing elements, it protects the precision piston from wear upon continuous operation. By the special arrangement of the sealing elements, the UMETA TWIN-LOCK system avoids quasi-lubrication and grease escaping the piston. The sealing elements are designed in a way that they adjust themselves to the corresponding operating pressure with respect to their sealing effect.


The EVER-FLOW system invented by UMETA ensures perfetct functioning of the UMETA TWIN-LOCK gun, even with thick grease and at the lowest temperatures.

This is ensured by an outlet valve equipped with a special ball stopper. Even semifluid biological grease will easily be transported by the vacuum developing during the pumping process.

This is another advantage of UMETA’s, where many other competitors’ products fail.
