6.2.1. Oil circulation

Oil moves to places of lubricant under pressure which provides the oil pump. The pump works from the operating chain of a bent shaft of the engine. Power of the gear pump depends on characteristics of the engine and is reached by gear wheels, various on width. The oil pump is equipped with the reducing valve limiting pressure to 5 bars. The soaking-up branch pipe of the oil pump is shipped in an oil bathtub (the oil pallet). From the pump oil arrives to an oil filter. At the maximum frequencies of rotation of a bent shaft through the oil pump there pass more than 30 l of oil a minute.
