Did you know that as many as 68% of pump bearing failures are caused by lubrication related issues that could be easily prevented by maintaining correct oil level?
Incorrect oil level is one of the most common causes of bearing failures in critical ANSI or API pumps. Oil level can be easily monitored using an oil sight glass, but standard flat sight glasses become stained over time making it difficult to accurately check the oil level. A 3-D sight glass that extends out, away from the machinery should be used. This window allows the oil level to be observed from any angle.
