Selection Of API 614, Fourth Edition, Chapter 3, General Purpose Lube Oil System Components For Rotating Process Equipment
MetadataShow full item record
Lube oil systems are utilized in rotating process equipment to lubricate and cool hydrodynamic bearings. These systems are essential to the life and maintenance-free operation of the process equipment. Dependable performance results in up time for equipment, which increases profits for the process end user. API 614, Fourth Edition, Chapter 3 (1999), defines the requirements of components for general purpose lube oil systems. Conservative design, proper specifications, and applications of the components minimizes the possibility for failure and maximizes the potential for long, trouble-free service life of the rotating equipment. Understanding the system’s needs, optimizing component selections, allowing for operational maintenance, and proper application of the system are the keys to reliability.
