Sloan Lubrication Systems has unveiled a new lubrication system designed to eliminate day tanks and substantially reduce lubrication rates.
Known as the TriCip, the system uses a cartridges to deliver a “special fluid” to lubricate compressor cylinders and rod packing. The announcement came during the Technology Update session today at the Gas Machinery Conference in Kansas City, Missouri.
Through the new delivery method, the TriCip can reduce lubrication fluid usage and valve replacements by more than 90% and 75%, respectively.
“This has been a couple years in the making,” said Steve Battaglia, vice president of sales for Sloan Lubrication Systems. “It is something we foresee being the ‘go-to’ system (for lubrication needs).”
