This is a lube oil pipe commonly known as S- pipe is fitted in bottom part of power pack of diesel locomotives. It ensure minimal pressure drop & smooth flow of lube oil in tube contributing better lubrication in engine of locomotive.
However the location of the pipe is so critical that no leakage is allowed. In case of leakage of oil from the joint of the pipe, the total oil will be drained out from the locomotive and locomotive will be in a critical condition without lube oil. Hence most stringent quality control is exercised while manufacturing this pipe.
Apollo stands a record in supply of reliable diesel locomotive components like fuel injection tube assembly, fuel oil line, lube oil line, nozzle cooling sleeve, s-pipe for indigenously made ALCO locomotives, shunting locomotives with MAK -23 engine and other locomotives of design similar to General Motor locomotives manufactured by Indian Railways.
