Solutions for Loss of Lubrication (LoL) events in turboshaft engines
The current turboshaft engine requirement is for 6 minutes of operations in loss of lubrication (LoL) conditions – with the new objective extending loss of lubrication operational capabilities to beyond 20 minutes.
Traditional systems used today impose undesired weight increases which reduce aircraft payload and range. Additionally, these systems must have the ability to fit within the existing engine envelope.
During loss of lubrication events, multiple engine parameters are affected, including gearbox temperature, engine temperature, and oil pressure.
Zulu Pods’ patented self-contained oil delivery system generates its own pressure supply independent of a pump – capable of being strategically placed in and around mechanical systems to provide the optimal amount of lubrication during a loss of lubrication event.
