- n. A device or method to secure lubrication of working surfaces in the inclosed crank-case of a steam-engine by agitating the lubricant in a suitable well. If the oil is struck by the end of the connecting-rod and the latter has a spattering effect upon the oil, the lubrication is better assured.
