An oil dispenser is a container designed to hold and dispense lubricating oil. Oil dispensers are available in both stationary and portable designs. Lubricating systems require regular replenishment of lubricants; oil dispensers store large quantities of lubricant until needed to refill a lubricator's depleted supply.
Although various oil dispenser designs exist, commercial oil dispensers usually resemble a gas pump, and include a hose and nozzle connected to a larger unit. These units come in a range of sizes and holding capacities, ranging anywhere from twenty lbs. to four hundred lbs. Portable dispensers can be used to quickly load grease guns and oil cans that are used in everyday procedures. Oil dispensers, or oilers, are lubrication systems that exclusively dispense oil. Oil lubricants are usually not organic, but mineral based like petroleum. That means they are substances that have been naturally altered by geochemical processes underground by way of porous rocks or plankton. Mineral oil degrades, but not nearly as quickly as organic oil does. Synthetic oils that have been specially engineered with positive corrosion and wear resistant characteristics are also dispensed by lubricating equipment.
