What is a Pneumatic Lubricator?

What is a Pneumatic Lubricator?
So, what does a lubricator do? A pneumatic lubricator sprays micro-particles of lubricator oil into the airflow to provide fluent lubrication. The purpose of lubricating pneumatic devices is to prevent abrasion caused by solid friction sliding movements, which improves durability, reduces perturbation resistance, and improves efficiency. It also lubricates seals to reduce wear and tear and prevents air leakage.
