Next generation of oil wiping technology for reciprocating compressors

Are you still using metallic oil wiper rings and have you got used to the oil leakage?

Do you know how much oil you are wasting every year with your metallic oil wiper?

With the recent trend towards higher speed compression, a new problem has emerged, which initially did not receive a lot of attention: the efficiency of the oil wiper rings. In certain problem applications, customers have reported oil losses as high as about 1 gallon per day. This is not only an environmental concern, but also a cost concern, especially in remote areas where oil delivery is not convenient. Other problem sites reported that traditional wiper rings were wearing down the piston rod diameter. Using the principle of elasto-hydrodynamics, HOERBIGER addresses these challenges with the launch of a revolutionary non-metallic wiper, the Oil Film Dynamic (OFD) wiper rings.
