Lubrication units for commercial and military turbojet engines are one of the main products on which Safran Aero Boosters's reputation is founded.
With 40 years experience and some twenty references to its credit, Safran Aero Boosters has developed cutting-edge expertise in this equipment. The company currently holds a 75% market share for medium-haul aircraft engine lubrication units .
Lubrication units, which are mounted directly onto the engine's accessory gearbox, are crucial for correct propulsion. The equipment pressurizes the oil from the oil tank and distributes it around the engine parts requiring lubrication before cooling and filtering it prior to returning it to the tank.
As a supplier of lubrication equipment for most commercial aircraft programs and for the TP400 engine for the Airbus A400M, Safran Aero Boosters offers its clients complete solutions: design, engine integration, development, certification, industrialization (provision of fast protyping techniques) and in-service support. The company operates under partnership contracts and exclusive supplier agreements with engine manufacturers. It also provides support to aircraft companies and maintenance centers.

One of Safran Aero Boosters's strengths is its ability to carry out every stage of the manufacturing process.
The company has its own test cells to test lubrication units in a functional environment simulating all the speed, altitude and pressure conditions to which engines are subjected.
