Using air-line lubricators to introduce oil into the airstream can continuously lubricate valves, cylinders, and air motors. Benefits include lower friction; cooler, smoother, and quieter operation; better control of speed and torque; lower maintenance and replacement costs; and longer service life.</p></div> <p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/minimal-lubrication-maximum-life" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/minimal-lubrication-maximum-life#comments Air Filters and FRLs Thu, 05 Jun 2014 18:46:00 +0000 27181 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com ORAs Improve Filter Breathers http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/oras-improve-filter-breathers <div class="field-byline"> Alan Hitchcox, Editor </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Gangnon’s Oilmiser Reservoir Aspirator (ORA) is installed between a standard reservoir and filter breather.
