Fundamentals Of Lubrication Relating To Operation And Maintenance Of Turbomachinery
A properly designed, installed, operated, and maintained lubrication system is necessary for reliable machine performance. In this paper the principles involved in the operation and maintenance of a system are emphasized. The primary components of a system are described including the lubricant itself. Sampling and testing techniques and their significance are discussed with special reference to the useful life of the lubricant change. Opinions are expressed regarding contaminants and their control, oil filter selection, flushing and cleaning techniques, and coupling lubrication.
