Luneta brings us yet another innovative product with ‘The Hub’. This device has four lateral ports that allow
you to install compatible attachments including oil level sight glasses, BS&W Bowls, sample valves, drain
valves, filter cart, and more. Its high flow sample port makes it easy to tackle the oil sampling process with
its incredibly simple installation process.
A client recently provided feedback on their experience with ‘The Hub’ regarding oil monitoring in their
machinery. The results are clear:
The oil level sight glass on the BC agitator gearbox is regularly hard to read due to aeration in the oil. This
also results in oil spillage when the oil would foam out the top of the breather hole in the sight glass.
The client utilised the product known as The Hub, sourced from GVS Reliability Products. The Hub allows
for multiple oil monitoring accessories to be attached to the same port. An inspection bowl, sample point,
drain point and column sight glass which vents back into the gearbox was used.
• Venting the sight glass back into the gearbox prevents oil spillage when foaming, and keeps the
unit sealed from water and dust ingress.
• The bowl gives an early indication of potential contamination from water or sediment.
• Column sight glass made from impact resistant acrylic which provides a clear and accurate
view of the oil level.
The image below represents how each part attaches and meets at the four lateral points of The Hub. Every
Hub also has a protected high flow sampling valve with an attachable 12 inch pilot tube, to produce reliable
and accurate results every time.
