Lubrication System

MGR Fluid Power was tasked with replacing an outdated lubrication system in a Steel Mill. The system is used for lubricating bearings using a fluid called Morgoil, which has a high viscosity. Our solution involved mounting the components on a single frame, reducing the footprint over the existing design. The frame was supplied with certified lifting eyes so that it could be lifted into the cellar, where the lubrication tank was situated.

The skid frame was fitted with;

  • Two off pump sets, one for standby. The pump sets comprised of a 7.5 kW motor close coupled to a low noise screw pump supplying 200 l/min at pressures up to 8 bar.
  • 50-micron duplex filter with electrical blockage indication. This will ensure clean oil at the bearings. The filters can be removed and cleaned.
  • Plate heat exchanger with a 90 kW heat dissipation.
  • Three way thermostatic bypass valve to maintain the oil outlet temperature at 50 degC.
  • Pressure and tempertaure insturmentation wired to a terminal box. The instrumentation will be then connected to a control system which will remotely monitor the supply of oil to the bearings.

The lubrication system was tested in our factory and supplied with Operation and Maintenance manuals.
