A dry sump design should be employed. The gear unit for a train with a central lube oil system should be designed for the turbine grade oils of the system. Typically, 150 Saybolt Seconds Universal (SSU) oils at 100°F (ISO 32) with an inlet temperature of U0°F to 120°F are adequate.

If the gear unit application must have its own oil supply, such as with some retrofits, the intent of the API 614 should be employed.

All lube piping should be stainless steel. The stainless steel should be one of the 300 series, preferably "L" or low carbon grade, such as type 304L.
