Parker's 16L is a micro-mist lubricator that injects a mist of oil into the flowing air stream to automatically provide the correct amount of internal lubrication for air tools and other pneumatic devices. This type of lubricator can be precisely adjusted to a very low oil flow rate because only a portion of the oil drops seen in the sight dome travels downstream. Proportional oil is delivered over a wide range of air flows and precision needle valve assures repeatable oil delivery. A slight adjustment can provide a desired mist rate.

This unit is ideal for low and high flow applications that demand uniform lubrication in a robust package. This lubricator can be mounted using a modular connector to other 06 Series Prep-Air II products. F442 oil is suggested for lubrication and will allow the product to perform at peak performance. The lubricator should be used where only a very small amount of lubrication is desirable or where it is necessary for the oil to remain suspended in the air stream for long distances.
