Oil supply

Airquip and Pipetool Pty Ltd has installed oil supply pipework systems into many different industries. From small workshops and lube stations to multi-million purpose built service/maintenance/repair facilities, Airquip has you covered with a range of options to suit every need. Getting your oil from delivery vessels to point of use is one of the areas that Airquip can help you refine and streamline your operations.

Stainless steel crimped pipework and high pressure hoses are used for transfer of oil supply.

Media for these systems include;

  • Hydraulic oil
  • Engine oil (SAE30/SAE50/15W40 etc)
  • Transmission fluid
  • Differential oil
  • Cutting/tapping oil

Compressed air operated piston pumps with either 3:1 or 5:1 ratios are often used to transfer oil into the oil pipework system. For low-pressure systems 240v gear pumps are also a feasible option.

Successful installation of a high-quality oil supply system relies on many different factors, some features offered by Airquip are optional but others are absolutely necessary;

  • Pressure relief valves
  • Kidney loops (where stored oil is periodically circulated through a filter bank to remove impurities)
  • Thermal expansion loops
  • Automated pump start/stop
  • Automated fluid procurement
  • Tank high/low level alarms
  • Job tracking/fluid metering
  • Authorised technician/user access via RFID

We have access to a range of spring retract hose reels, digital metered dispensing nozzles, and pumps from leading manufacturers globally.
