Lubrication pumps and pumping units

Lubrication pumps feed lubricant from the lubricant reservoir into the tubing system of the centralized lubrication system. The manometric pressure has to be high enough to compensate for pressure drops in the tubing, components (filters, valves, distributors) and friction points.

Differentiation criteria:
  • type of lubrication system
  • principle of operation
  • type of drive
  • pump design
  • lubricant
  • lubricant quantities required by the system
  • pressure ranges temperature ranges
