Oil Mist Lubrication Systems
An oil mist lubrication system is a centralized lubrication system that generates an atomized oil mist of >3 microns that is delivered directly to the equipment bearings. The system has no moving parts using forced air to deliver a lean oil mist to each bearing house. A single system can provide lubrication for up to 80 pumps.
Oil mist lubrication systems are a proven technology developed in Europe for industrial use in the 1930s and first used in refineries by Chevron and Exxon in the late 1960s. Systems can be incorporated into new projects or retrofitted into existing facilities. Applications include pump, electric motors, gear boxes and in some cased turbines and pillow block bearings. Worldwide there are over 4,200 large scale systems (console type with < 35 pumps) and countless smaller systems. Nearly 50% of refineries in India are currently using oil mist lubrication systems.

FMC Series Features
Each FEPL FMC series oil mist lubrication system comes with the following standard features -
- Large oil and air passages
- Efficient mist generation through clog free vortex mist head
- Almost no maintenance requirements
- All stainless steel construction
- Approved for Class 1 Group B/C/D Div 2 or Option Div 1
- Monitors and controls all mist generating variables
- Electrical power for controls only - not for production of the oil mist
FMC Series Applications
FEPL's FMC series of oil mist generators can meet the lubrication needs of any rotating equipment. Whether it is just a few pumps/motors or you need a centralized system for an entire industrial unit. Oil mist lubrication systems can be integrated into any Greenfield project or retrofitted into any existing system. FEPL can also install the system without shutting down the plant to do the installation.

Blazeflow Oil Purification Systems
The BlazeFlow oil purifier systems manufactured by FEPL are an advanced, effective and reliable solution for removing particulates, water and gases from a wide range of fluids including lubricants, hydraulic oils and transformer oils.
The BlazeFLow oil purifiers utilize the principal of air/gas stripping making it technically advanced and mechanically simple. The design and process of BlazeFLow oil purifiers deliver benefits and results not possible with other types of oil purification equipment and technology.

How BlazeFlow Air/Gas Oil Purification Works
Air/gas stripping works by drawing air or nitrogen gas into a stream of heated oil, which mixes in and absorbs the water and gasses within the oil. The oil/air mixture is then expanded to release the air or nitrogen taking the impurities with it.
The BlazeFlow system is technically sophisticated and mechanically simple with few moving parts and rugged design. The only rotating element is an electric motor and two close coupled gear pumps. This makes the system very reliable and requires little maintenance beyond the change of the oil filter element.

Industrial facilities require equipment that needs to function reliably under rigorous and hazardous environmental conditions. FEPL has worked with its partners to develop products that meet the needs of the petrochemical industry.
Closed Circuit TV Camera Systems
CCTV camera systems are an important facilities management tool in today's modern industrial plant. A properly planned system can provide you a clear picture of your entire facility. The system helps you monitor staff activities, spot problems before they get out of hand, and ultimately save money and lives.
Based on your needs, FEPL will help you design a system using a variety of cameras such as C-Mount, wide angle and infra red cameras to give you the right coverage.
All CCTV cameras offered FEPL are designed to work in the harsh conditions of a refinery or petrochemical plant. CCTV cameras are housed in explosion proof, all-weather, corrosion resistant SUS 316 stainless steel meeting IECEx ExD/IIC/T6/IP67 standards.
A CCTV system is only as good as its installation. FEPL will make sure the installation is done right and on-time.
Solar PV Modules
Integrating solar power systems into your facility has become a matter of common sense in today's world. Whether it is to offset your current power consumption, build in system redundancies, comply with government regulations or if you simply want to "go green," FEPL has the right modular solar system for you.
FEPL offers a full range of systems to meet every need. The panels we use are IEC/VDE/UL certified. They are also approved by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and ICRA Limited. The panels were rated one of the ten best energy yields by Photon Lab in 2013.
FEPL is a turnkey provider. We can do a full evaluation to see what system is best for you. We can then design and install that system making sure it meets the rigorous standards of your industrial facility.
