Lube Tip
Checklist for troubleshooting foaming and aeration of lubricating oils:
  • Ensure there are no leaks introducing air into the oil on the suction side of the circulating pump.
  • Improper oil viscosity (especially higher viscosity) can increase the risk of foaming.
  • Outside contaminants such as grease, dust or moisture can retard air release from oil.
  • Provide maximum separation of the suction and return lines to give air a chance to separate from the oil. Tank baffles provide further help.
  • Be sure that the oil return line is below the oil surface in the reservoir. If it is above the oil level, oil could splash into the tank putting air into the system.
  • Ensure that there is adequate residence time of the oil in the reservoir to allow the air to release.
  • Consider employing a diffuser on the return line to allow oil to "ooze" into the tank, reducing agitation.
