A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11927306B2) discloses a system for operating and lubricating multiple valves efficiently. The system includes control units associated with each valve, featuring hydraulic pressure inlets and outlets, hydraulic pressure lines, and hydraulic ports for communication of hydraulic pressure to the valve. Additionally, the control units have lubricant inlets, outlets, and lines for selective communication of lubricant to the valve. Each control unit may include valves and lubricant pumps for effective operation.

Furthermore, the patent details the integration of a common control computer to operate the system, with each control unit providing digital information about the valve's location and function. This information is transmitted to the control computer for centralized management. The system ensures seamless operation and lubrication of valves through the coordinated functioning of hydraulic pressure and lubricant delivery mechanisms, enhancing overall efficiency and control in valve systems.
