Because these applications, by there nature, have much air movement around them, the standard Opto-Matic oilers often misfeed in these applications. Air movement can create different atmospheric conditions between the bearing housing and the air surrounding the Opto-Matic oiler. This difference in air pressure can be off-set by use of the closed systems oilers. Bearing housing and oilers are closed off from the outside air between themselves by use of the atmospheric tubing.
