2.13. LUBRICATING SYSTEMS

Lubricating systems for modern gas-turbine engines are relatively simple in design and operation, but their function is of vital importance. The principal purposes of the lubricating system are to clean, reduce friction, and to cool the bearing surfaces. The main units of the typical system are the reservoir or oil tank, the pressure pump, scavenger pumps, filters, oil cooler, and spray oil jets.
