The problem with keeping the oilers 100% filled is that this requires frequent removal of the reservoirs for refilling. Every time an oiler is removed, oil is released into the lower casting. This also happens when the reservoir is replaced. We have found in our testing that doing this twice a day on a Goulds model "STX", which has approximately a quarter capacity of oil, we raised the oil level approximately 1/16 of an inch within a week. To keep oilers 100% filled, we would suggest that you have your operators monitor, closely, the oil level in the bearing housing.
