Manual Oil Lubrication on Hydraulic Systems – Gravity Drip Feed Oilers
When you use the gravity drip feed oiling you put the case or whatever you put the oil in above or put it to the side of where it needs to be oiled. Then it drips thru a needle valve at a rate that is suitable for that job. You should use the flow rate the manufacturer suggested.
And you have to see which works best for your equipment and what is cost effective your jobs at hand. Also, different valves and fittings take different applications for the way the machine gets its oil.
You also can do a manual lubrication by a high pressured oil pump to lubricate your unit or a splash procedure where the parts are put in an oil bath which gets moved around the parts and lubricates them that way.
There are several ways to get parts lubricated. You have to see which is cost effective and the right application for the job you need to do.
