GETTING THE FACTS ON OIL MIST LUBRICATION
Oil mist lubrication is a proven and environmentally clean technology for the lubrication of rotating equipment in process industries. The use of oil mist lubrication has grown dramatically worldwide delivering increased reliability to many types of rotating equipment. Many advances have been made in both the technology of oil mist system design and methods for applying oil mist to rotating equipment. Key questions to be addressed include: What is oil mist and how is it generated? How has oil mist evolved over the past forty years? Where oil mist is currently applied? What are the advantages of oil mist lubrication? How to justify oil mist lubrication? Oil mist is considered a “best practice” by many companies in the process industries.
