Pressure lost chart

Pressure loss in lubrication lines depends on certain variables. The most important variables are pump displacement, environmental temperatures, tube diameter and NLGI class. Each variable must be considered for correct lubrication.

The chart below represents the approximate pressure loss in tube which is 1 meter long. Results vary according to pump element displacement volume created by single or multiple pump elements. Result values are defined in bars.

Grease penetration properties are variable at different environment temperatures.The environment temperature around lubrication lines must be concidered for choosing the correct grease.
Grease properties should be appropriate to environment temperatures. Changing NLGI classes at different temperatures is important for correct lubrication. High temperature resistant lubricants should be used in some cases if neccesary.
