Oil mist lubrication history and plant-wide reliability experience

Equipment reliability at a major oil refinery in Western Australia ranks very high among the prominent users of plant-wide oil mist. Worldwide, there are now an estimated 160,000 process pumps and 50,000 electric motors that are lubricated with oil mist as of 2019. Well over 3,000 plant-wide oil mist systems are presently operating in close to 100 countries around the world; these range from the wind-blown Caribbean to the dry heat of Saudi Arabia, from humid Singapore and semi-tropical Venezuela to the wintery cold of Northwestern Canada.
