Cas Staff asked 4 years ago

After complete overhaul of the reciprocating air KAJI compressor, the compressor tripped after 3 hours of operation due to low lube oil pressure.
Filter have been replaced. pressure relief valves are also new. pump running amps are also in normal range.no leakage observed at the piping. What might have caused the pressure drop?
