Delivering the right amount of oil at the right time to compressor cylinders and rod packing is a critical requirement to keep a natural gas compressor operating efficiently. Failure to do so will cause premature wear on compressor cylinders, cylinder rod packing and engine cylinders, potentially costing thousands of dollars for repairs and lost time. Under lubrication causes damaging metal-to-metal contact that generates excessive heat resulting in either premature cylinder or rod packing wear or potentially a catastrophic failure. Over lubrication can negatively impact downstream gas processes, catalyst beds, compressor valves and be a cause of carbon deposits on engine cylinders. Over lubrication essentially wastes money and negatively impacts the environment. Proper lubrication protects your compressor, extends the life of its critical components and keeps this valued asset up and generating revenue.
