Trico business development professional Mike Gauthier recently visited a chemical refinery with GCI-Reliability Centered Solutions. Mike was there to assist in installation of a closed loop oiler system with an expansion chamber and a desiccant breather/air dryer. The focus of this type of configuration is to help mitigate contaminants from entering the bearing housing and to also remove/prevent moisture from entering as well. This will extend the life of the oil and subsequently the bearings that the oil is engineered to lubricate. Installing the system prior to service is the most effective way to ensure reliability of this critical asset.
