What is Air-Oil?

HASTEC REBS air-oil lubrication systems use compressed air to transport oil lubricant to a bearing or spray.

With this type of air oil lubrication system, a pre-calculated amount of oil is periodically introduced into the constant air stream over a specific period of time.

The oil is then transferred to the downstream consumers in a spiralized motion via a wall attachment effect.

THE AIR AND OIL NEVER MIX
and NO ATOMIZATION OCCURS

The air stream simultaneously cools the bearing and provides a positive pressure in the bearing housing to prevent contamination from entering the bearing housing.
