Oilers

An oiler is a device used to apply lubricating oil to machinery. To ensure effective operation, most moving parts require regular lubrication to prevent wear from friction. Oilers use several different lubricating materials and can apply these materials by various means.

Oilers are lubrication equipment that applies petrol-based lubrication to machines and parts. Lubricant distribution can be powered by many means; it can be driven by manual labor or by pneumatic, hydraulic or electric power. Delivery techniques for lubricators include constant level, full flow, metered quantity, microfog and spray methods.

Constant level oilers involve automatic lubricators that provide a continuous supply of lubricant to machines and systems. The specific mechanics of constant level oilers are in short, a three part dispenser shaped like a trapezoid light bulb. A reservoir contains the additional oil at the top, while a pump is what pumps it out through the pumping house when the sensors let the automatic system know it is necessary.

Like other automatic systems such as the central lubrication system, which are full flow oilers, constant level oilers are often attached to the machine itself. Microfog lubrication delivers a mixture of atomized, micron oil particles and air. Spray methods would be done manually for occasional spot lubrication on machines without automatic systems attached.

Oilers are vital to manufacturing industries. Moving or rotating parts of machinery, such as dies, chains, spindles, pumps, cables, rails, bearings, and gears, need to be lubricated in order to continue to run smoothly and reliably. Oil is the perfect substance for this because it does not adhere and harden to surfaces, but keeps them smooth while protecting them from wearing out and corroding. The types of oil used for lubrication are usually mineral oils such as petroleum or synthetic oils.

Organic oils degrade to fast to be used as lubes. Large machinery with parts that need to be kept lubricated are employed by numerous industries, such as food and beverage, printing, packaging, industrial manufacturing, construction, aerospace, automotive, marine, power generation, oil companies and many others.

If a machine is involved in their production, then an oiler or other lubrication system is necessary. It is also a smart investment for a company, because it will keep maintenance costs down as well as keeping machines working longer and at higher qualities of performance.
