Lubrication system is used to introduce oil and other lubricants to give a flow to the clean oil at the accurate temperature, with an appropriate pressure to moving machine parts. The oil is sucked out into the pump from the sump thereby reducing the friction between parts, and therefore increasing the longevity of all components. Without lubrication, most machines would overheat or suffer extreme damage.
Proper lubrication is the most important aspect of machine and auto life. A well-oiled automobile will outlast poorly maintained models easily. Industrial machinery are the same and a good lubrication system can help save a lot of money in the long run.
The different types of lubrication systems used are
1. Mist lubrication system
2. Wet sump lubrication system, and
3. Dry sump lubrication system
