There is a wide variety of valves available when trying to decide which sampling valve is the best for optimizing oil change intervals. One thing to remember is that recommended oil change intervals are typically conservative estimates based on the most rugged conditions.

After 30,000 hours of operation, our Atlas Copco model air compressor required no oil change and experienced no lubrication-related downtime. That’s nearly four times longer than the OEM-recommended interval for this compressor, providing significant savings in time and money. Find out how we did it.

Tribology is the science that studies the relationship between lubrication, friction, and wear. It is all about the lubricant film inside the bearing. The film that happens inside a roller element bearing, whatever the shape of the roller is, is referred to as Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication. Mina Soliman explains these terms more in depth.
