Lubricant Management for Non-Circulating Sumps
A non-circulating or static sump is one where the lubricant remains with the components. The sump isn’t static in the sense that it lacks motion. The lubricant certainly moves around the components under protection. In this instance, the static sump is one where the lubricant remains with the sump during operation, in contrast to the dynamic sump where the lubricant drains or is pumped out of the fixture holding the components and is later returned.
