Consider closed–loop oil-mist lubrication
A growing trend is migrating to this new lubricating system for rotating equipment
Oil-mist lubrication systems have been used for many years. Properly applied, they also represent a proven and environmentally clean technology for lubricating rotating equipment in the hydrocarbon processing industry (HPI). Full-scale oil-mist lubrication for many pumps and motors in the HPI dates back to the mid-1960s. Several US refiners started installing large-scale plantwide oil-mist systems in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Two large US Gulf Coast refineries were among the first to adopt oil mist for their hundreds of pumps and motors; they continue to do so today, almost 50 years later.
At present, there are an estimated 70,000 machines lubricated by oil mist. Only a small number
