Compressor lubrication refers to reducing friction and wear by adding appropriate lubricants during the operation of the compressor to ensure the smooth operation and long-term reliability of the mechanical components. It is mainly to reduce energy consumption, improve work efficiency, extend equipment life, and reduce maintenance costs.

Inside the compressor, high-speed rotating components such as pistons, crankshafts and cylinders need to be adequately lubricated to reduce heat and loss from friction while ensuring the stability and performance of the compressor. Different types of compressors (such as screw compressors, piston compressors, etc.) may require different types of lubrication systems and lubricants to meet their unique operating conditions and requirements.

1.0 Compressor lubrication is affected by the compressed gas

1, air: affected by compressor design, pressure, exhaust temperature and working temperature;

2. Hydrocarbon gas: tends to wash the lubricating oil away from the cylinder, dissolving the lubricating oil and reducing the viscosity;

3, chemically active gases: oxygen, chlorine, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and hydrogen chloride;

4, chemical inert gases: carbon monoxide, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, helium, hydrogen, freon and ammonia

4.0 On-line monitoring of compressor lubrication

Compressor lubrication monitoring is a key industry practice designed to ensure that compressors maintain good lubrication during operation.

Compressors are used to compress gas or steam to high pressure for a variety of uses, such as manufacturing, energy production, and air compression. Due to their high speed of rotation and importance, the lubrication of compressors is critical to their performance, life and reliability.

Improper lubrication can lead to compressor failure, damage, and production disruptions, all of which can pose serious production costs and safety risks. Therefore, on-line monitoring of the lubrication status of the compressor can help prevent potential problems and improve the efficiency and reliability of the industrial process.

5.0 Compressor Best Practices

Keep the oil clean, dry and cool

Monitor the health of additives

Make sure the compressed gas is compatible with the compressor oil

The anti-emulsification ability of oil was monitored

Daily search for evidence of air intrusion and oil emulsification

The base oil matches the system requirements

Ensure that the size of the cylinder is appropriate to cool the lubricating oil and precipitate the particles

Keep it sealed to prevent oil or gas leakage

Check lubricating oil viscosity on a daily basis to look for signs of oxidation or declining viscosity
