Oil supply systems

Oil supply systems for power stations, mining machinery, workshops

Increased profit through modern machinery and equipment maintenance

Optimum supply of lubricants to machinery, vehicles and apparatus for a long service life.

Lubricants, also known as lubricating oils, are the “life blood” of engines, gearboxes and equipment. Lubricating oil makes gearboxes and engines run smoothly and stands for a long service life for machinery and equipment only provided it is dosed properly.

Heavy-duty use in engines and gearboxes makes the lubricating oil lose its lubricating properties over time, it ages or carbonizes and the lubricating film tears.

Used lubricating oil must be replaced by new lubricating oil. An oil change is necessary.

Combustion engines continually consume motor oil as the cylinder walls are lubricated when the combustion engine is running. Only small amounts of motor oil are consumed here, but if the oil level in the engine oil sump is not checked, even this consumption can lead to the oil level dropping below minimum and in the worst case to destruction of the engine.

With regard to the supply of lubricating oil, the following points are decisive for problem-free operation of machinery, vehicles or equipment:

  1. Continual monitoring of the optimum oil level in the oil sump
  2. The correct lubricating oil pressure within the machine’s oil system
  3. Continual replenishing of used oil quantities in the oil sump (combustion engines)
  4. Exclusive use of the motor or gear oils certified by the machine manufacturer
  5. Observation of oil change intervals according to manufacturer specifications, operating hours or mileage
  6. Replacement of oil filters in the machine’s oil system according to manufacturer specifications with regard to change intervals and cleanness of the lubricating oil

Oil Change of Engine:
Z-PG-pump Gen-Set of waste oil: Trough the first conveying path the waste oil pump is sucked from the engine oil sump and conveyed in an accordant tank. Through the second conveying path the oil is conveyed from the tank into barrels after switching the rotating direction.
Z-PG-pump Gen-Set of fresh oil: Trough the first conveying path the fresh oil is conveyed from the barrels by the fresh oil pump in a accordant tank. Through the second conveying path the oil is conveyed from the tank into the engine oil sump.

Fuelling and Disposal of the System:
The fresh oil tank can be filled by a tank car. The overfill protection prevents an overfilling by means of turning off the tank-car pump. The waste oil tank car is emptied through a tank-car connection to suction tube. The overfill protection will be turned off when the tank car is full.
Alternatively, the supply/disposal can be carried out through barrel connector and the controller of the system itself. In doing so the waste oil tank will be emptied or the fresh oil tank will be filled by simply changing the rotating direction of the pumps to the right connection of the accordant lines.

Automatic operation – fresh oil pump Gen-Set – impulse controlled (filling engine)
A controlled break during running period at second-interval reduces the flow rate to approximate 15%.
If additional fresh oil is required in the engine sump, the inlet magnet valve on the engine-oil sump will open, and the fresh-oil-pump Gen-Set will convey fresh oil in small amount according to requirement, till the maximum oil level is reached.

oil supply system MAXIMAL

Automatic operation – fresh oil pump Gen-Set – level controlled (filling TTE)
In a day fuel tank, a level sensor is installed for each maximum and minimum filling level. The pump receives electrical signal from the level sensor. If the signal “minimum filling level” arrives, the pump will request fresh oil as long as it receives the signal “maximum filling level”, and then, it turns off. Due to the raised arrangement of the day fuel tank above the engine, static supplying the engine-oil sump with fresh oil can take place.

Stacking Variants / More-Chamber Tank Container

For large systems the oil supplying can be integrated in Minotaur Container. It is possible to adjust the individual tanks to the special requirements of the system and the local structural conditions. Thereby a container can be equipped with more chambers in order to contain the required media. Otherwise a single container can be equipped for a certain medium. To save room the containers can be stacked on each other. Stairs and ladders for the accessibility has been considered and exactly adjusted. Next to the tanks, buffer storage for operating material can be connected to the whole concept in order to improve efficiency.

In addition, the following factors are of great importance for problem-free operation and 100% availability of machinery and equipment

  1. Good machinery and equipment drivers with reasonable technical expertise to avoid “material battles”. A lot of the machinery and apparatus used in mining, the power station industry and construction industry are major investments. 500,000 EUR to 5,000,000 EUR unit prices are quite common. These machines are highly productive but also require intensive maintenance. One hour’s failure of such a machine can cost up to 2,000 EUR/h loss of production.
  2. Good maintenance and service technicians
    In large companies with an expensive machine park, every technical manager knows that these technicians are the backbone of the company. These technicians stand for preventive maintenance and minimising machine failures as well as for fast repairs in the event of machine failures. Because downtimes reduce profit./li>

  3. A strict maintenance regime
    This means that when maintenance work is planned, it is carried out at the correct intervals as well as to a very high quality. Records of the work carried out with documentation of consumables are mandatory.
  4. Modern effective service equipment for fast optimum maintenance to cut standstill times during necessary maintenance work.
    If the maintenance team only needs to stop the machine for 30 minutes for daily maintenance rather than 2 hours, this minimisation of machine downtime can significantly increase profit.
    This means that the consumption media such as oils, urea and greases are pumped into the machine by pumps with a large displacement volume. This saves downtime.

Krampitz has been producing diesel tanks, oil supply and maintenance units for customers worldwide for 30 years.

Over the years Krampitz has been confronted with many challenges and customer views. Krampitz systems stand for a modular way of thinking, efficiency, easy installation and a long service life. The corrosion protection of our equipment is precisely matched to the usage location or region.

  • In the field of oil supply we work exclusively with high-quality positive displacement pumps such as gear pumps or pneumatically driven piston pumps.
  • The filling level in our tanks can be monitored mechanically or electronically.
  • Our steel or stainless steel tanks are usually double-walled and equipped with vacuum leak monitoring.
  • If necessary, we also work with electronic flow counters or pulsers for precise measurement of consumption quantities.
  • The use of electronic overfill protection devices or motorized valves to prevent tanks overfilling is standard.
