The Methods Of Lubrication
Screensavers and forced two lubrication strategies are used in refrigeration compressors. Methods compressor lubrication vary, depending on the type and size of the compressor and its manufacturer. Usually employed lubrication methods can be grouped into two categories, screensavers method and pressure feed. As a rule, small, vertical, compressors, concluded after 15 HP (11.2 kW) splash lubrication.
As input power requirements exceeding this limit, the most compressors use of specific types of forced greasing. It is also common to use a combination of screen saver and forced strategies in a single compressor. Forced lubrication increases the cost of the compressor so that it is applicable only in very small compressors of critical and high-ena equipment.
