Industrial lubricants

pumpability

Industrial machinery; Industrial lubricants

The low temperature, low shear stress-shear rate viscosity characteristics of an oil that permit satisfactory flow to and from the engine oil pump and subsequent lubrication of moving components.

centipoise (cp)

Industrial machinery; Industrial lubricants

A unit of absolute viscosity. 1 centipoise = 0. 01 poise.

reynold’snumber

Industrial machinery; Industrial lubricants

A numerical ratio of the dynamic forces of mass flow to the shear stress due to viscosity. Flow usually changes from laminar to turbulent between Reynold's Number 2,000 and 4,000.

in-line filter

Industrial machinery; Industrial lubricants

A filter assembly in which the inlet, outlet and filter element axes are in a straight line.

rotating equipment

Industrial machinery; Industrial lubricants

Equipment that moves liquids, solids or gases through a system of drivers (turbines, motors, engines), driven components (compressors, pumps), transmission devices (gears, clutches, couplings) and ...

valve lifter

Industrial machinery; Industrial lubricants

Sometimes called a "cam follower," a component in engine designs that use a linkage system between cam and valve it operates. The lifter typically translates the motion HDDs to operate more ...

analysis of gravimetric analysis

Industrial machinery; Industrial lubricants

The methods of analysis where the dry weight per volume of contaminants in the fluid can be measured indicates the level of contamination in terms of milligrams of contaminant per litre of fluid.
