A Swiss based OEM relied on LIONOIL for the engineering and assembly of a lubrication skid for a natural gas compressor.
On request of the end-customer, LIONOIL designed an automatic lubrication unit of the pump-to-point type.
This means each individual lube point on the compressor is lubricated by an individual pump element.
For the oil supply towards the pump elements, an individual stainless steel reservoir was mounted.
It supplies the pump elements with process oil, while the mechanism which drives the pump is lubricated by dedicated gear oil.
This principle of pressurized supply increases the reliability, performance and life expectancy.
