Oil circulating pump units

Circulating oil lubrication systems can be classified as follows:
  • The lubricant delivered by a pump is split up by hydraulic resistors (orifice tubes, adjustable metering valve distributors, throttles)
  • Volumetric apportioning of the output by flow limiters or progressive feeders, 
  • Volumetric apportioning of the output by multicircuit pumps, e.g. multicircuit gear pumps or multicircuit piston pumps with one pump each per lube point.
The actual feed rates can be controlled visually or electronically. Monitoring systems with individual warning levels are available for a more predictive maintenance approach.

SKF CircOil systems include a wide range of tailor-made and turnkey solutions for flow rates from 0,1 to 3000 l/min:

Example: the SKF Streamline Pumping Unit with a tank capacity as high as 40000 litres, and innovative oil reservoirs such as the SKF Flowline Pumping Unit that helps reduce oil consumption dramatically. Pump units 143, M / MF and MFE can be used for smaller SKF CircOil lubrication systems.

In the table you can find an overview with technical details of oil circulating pump units of different sizes.
