… means to disconnect oil dosing from oil pumping correctly.
Reliable cylinder lubrication is one of the most sensitive topics in the operation of sophisticated reciprocating compressors. Incorrect oil metering can cause damage through both under- and over-lubrication. This, in turn, means unplanned downtime, costly production losses, or consequential damage elsewhere in the process.
“In general, it is not management’s objective to question the why and the how, but to see to it that a task is resolved. Being aware of this need, HOERBIGER works with leading industrial enterprises worldwide in perfect symbiosis – partnerships that value and trust in the expertise of the other party in its field.”
HOERBIGER developed XperLUBE to boost the performance and cost efficiency of your compressors. XperLUBE supplies your system with exactly the right amount of lubricant. At all times. Under any conditions.
Whether your lubrication issues stem from temperature, pressure, speed, or the failure of lube ports: XperLUBE is faster and more precise than manual control. XperLUBE automatically supplies exactly the right amount of lubricant to suit your specific requirements and the current operating conditions. When the process changes, the lube rate changes.
All parts are standardized and can be replaced individually. This simplifies inventory management and lowers costs. Individual components are quick and easy to replace, making XperLUBE ideal for retrofitting existing systems. XperLUBE controls precisely the amount of oil added to each lubrication point and provides the possibility to adjust the lube rate of each lube point and a significant improvement in the error detection capabilities.
The idea behind XperLUBE is simple. By disconnecting the oil pressure generation from the process of injecting oil into the cylinder, lubrication precision is ensured throughout the system's service life. A high-pressure common rail supplies oil to the lubrication points. Metering and injection is achieved with injectors, one at each lube point. At the center of the system, a control unit monitors the performance of all injectors and adjusts lubrication rates according to preset parameters. The same injector and hydraulic unit models are used in all applications.
