0 Reviews
Oil mist lubrication is used on literaily thousands of pumps and electric motors in the U.S. petrochemical industry. This lubrication method has been demonstrated to reduce rolling element bearing failures by as much as 90%, generating significant technical and economic advantages over other lubrication systems. Here is the complete explanatory guide to this modern reliability and profitability improvement approach. The comprehensive text explains how extensive research at Texas A&M University in the late 1980's and early 1990's has solidified our understanding of the underlying reasons why and how oil mist actually works in the safest, most reliable, and cost-effective fashion.
