API 614/610 Lubrication Systems
Similar to any lubrication system that provides constant lubrication and protection for compressors‚ steam and gas turbines‚ diesel engines‚ API 610 and API 614 lubrication systems provide lubrication to rotating equipment used to support process operations. API 610/API 614 pumps and lubrication systems are used throughout the upstream‚ midstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry.
The requirements of an API 610/614 lubrication system are well documented in the API specification document. In a typical system‚ oil flow rate‚ pressure and viscosity are determined by the requirements of the equipment being lubricated. These systems also utilize pumps‚ strainers or filters‚ relief valves‚ piping and heat exchangers to provide the necessary lubrication throughout a wide operation range. The pump within a Baric branded API 610/614 lubrication system is typically provided by either IMO‚ Allweiler or IMO AB branded three screw pump.
For users operating centrifugal pumps in a refinery environment‚ users may also consider Oil Mist Generators furnished by Total Lubrication Management. Oil Mist Generators support multiple centrifugal process pumps within a refinery and offering exceptional value particularly in hazardous environments.
