For the wide variety of machines served by Howard Marten Company, lubrication system design parameters cover a large range, and are influenced by many factors:

  • Oil grades ISO VG32 to VG680
  • Flow rates up to 1500 gpm [5680 lpm]
  • Pressures up to 2500 psi [17,250 kPa]
  • Anti-friction, Sleeve, and Multi-pad bearing types
  • Hydrodynamic and hydrostatic designs
  • Industry standards such as ISO, API, MSHA
  • Specific jurisdiction requirements including CE, GOST, AS, etc.
