The lubricant you choose for your compressor plays a critical role in protecting internal metal parts, preventing corrosion and wear, and sealing. Lubrication Engineers has the lubricants, reliability products and expertise to help you put together a complete program to help maximize electric motor bearing life, minimize lubrication problems, and increase safety levels.

The number one cause of failure in any mechanical application is contamination. Every industrial plant has a sizeable investment in both its equipment and the lubricant that is purchased to protect that equipment. One of the best ways to ensure smooth-running hydraulic systems is to use the right hydraulic oil and keep it clean and dry.

Choosing wisely will help protect the gears from wear, increase uptime, and - in most cases - dramatically reduce gear set operating temperatures, lubricant consumption, energy consumption, and waste disposal.Lubrication Engineers can help put together a lubrication reliability program for your pellet mills to help them last longer, eliminating downtime and reducing maintenance costs.
Highlights

read more › It all started in 1951, when three lubricant salesmen in Fort Worth, Texas, had a vision. They knew they could make better-performing lubricants for their customers, so they set out on their own to do just that. Fast forward to today, and Lubrication Engineers is a trusted lubrication reliability partner to companies all over the world, with 100-plus employees, nearly 100 independent consultants across the United States, and distributors in more than 60 countries. Find out about current job opportunities and being a part of the LE team.

read more › We will work closely with you to learn about your specific equipment and lubrication needs, and then help you create an effective lubrication reliability program that will provide equipment protection and enhanced profits. We start with an onsite equipment assessment. A trained, local lubrication consultant will provide a detailed report recommending lubricants, application methods, usage amounts, and drain or lube intervals. In addition to LE's premium line of lubricants, your consultant can offer you several other best practice products and services - available through our lubrication reliability partners - to ensure the effectiveness of your program.

read more › The lubricant you choose for your compressor plays a critical role in protecting internal metal parts, preventing corrosion and wear, and sealing. Requirements vary considerably based on compressor type, the environment in which it is used, and the type of gas that is being compressed. Lubrication Engineers can help by recommending lubrication reliability best practices - including the right oil - for most compressor types, whether they are centrifugal compressors, reciprocating compressors, rotary screw compressors, rotary vane compressors or dry screw compressors.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, more than 70 percent of electricity consumed in industry comes from the use of electric motors, which make up 25 percent of all rotating equipment in a plant. This means that electric motors account for nearly 25 percent of the national consumption of electricity. What all of this means to you is that maximizing your lubrication reliability efforts with electric motors can have a dramatic impact on your uptime and costs, including repairs and replacements, labor, and energy use.

read more › Industrial plants make sizeable investments in their equipment as well as the lubricants that protect the equipment. Therefore, it makes sense to protect these assets. To do that, we recommend putting in place a good lubrication reliability program to ensure the correct lubricants are used and to prevent contamination. This will protect the equipment and the lubricant, which in turn will eliminate or greatly reduce unscheduled downtime and increase the bottom line. Some of the common suffering points for gearbox applications are oil foaming, overheating, and emulsification.

read more › With pellet mill applications, the constant presence of heat, high pressure, contaminants, and in some cases, moisture, work to break down the thin lubricating film protecting the equipment from metal-to-metal contact. Once that breakdown occurs, increased levels of wear and corrosion are generated and expensive unplanned downtime results. LE can work with you to improve the performance and lifespan of your pellet mill equipment over typically accepted limits. Relying on inconsistent manual lubrication when an automatic system could produce better results.

read more › Investing in better-performing lubricants can make your plant more reliable by protecting your equipment and keeping it running longer and more efficiently. Lubrication Engineers manufactures and distributes a comprehensive line of high-performance lubricants that far exceed conventional lubricants in a variety of industrial and automotive applications. By significantly reducing downtime and maintenance costs, LE lubricants are also cost-effective, returning the initial price of the lubricant many times over.

read more › If you need a small amount of lubrication in specific areas or just want to give your operators additional flexibility for handling lubrication problems, Lubrication Engineers offers several of its great industrial lubricants in easy-to-use convenient aerosol cans. These are the same formulations used in our non-aerosol versions. LE's aerosol lubricant line includes a variety of options to take care of nearly any industrial or residential lubricant application. Wire rope, cables, chains, winches and other applications requiring a penetrating lubricant.

read more › Most factories and manufacturing facilities use compressed gas systems for a variety of applications, and keeping these air compressors running is critical to keeping the entire operation running. Nearly all compressors require a form of lubricant to cool, seal or lubricate internal components. Proper lubrication will ensure that your equipment will continue operating, and the plant will avoid costly downtime and repairs. Proper lubrication also will help compressors run cooler and consume less electrical energy.

Typically, engine oils are made up of 70 to 90 percent base oil and 10 to 30 percent additives. Lubrication Engineers uses premium quality base oil and best-in-class additive technology to formulate engine oils that maintain their viscosity, keep engine wear to a minimum, and help ensure dependability. LE engine oils are formulated to meet the needs of our industrial customers and in most cases easily exceed the Automotive Performance Institute (API) specifications for performance.

With these products, you can "go green" - and keep up with the latest environmental regulations - without having to sacrifice performance. EALs are environmentally acceptable lubricants that are biodegradable and minimally toxic, and are not bioaccumulative - as defined in Appendix A of the 2013 VGP. Each constituent substance in a lubricant formulation must be tested individually to meet the criteria.

Whether you operate trucks, buses, farm vehicles, construction equipment, marine engines, or even mowers and chainsaws, our fuel treatments help you maximize engine performance and save on fuel costs - making you greener in the process.

read more › Industrial gearboxes are expected to perform under conditions of high heat and heavy loads; and in environments often contaminated with dirt, process debris and water. Without adequate protection, gears will wear prematurely. You'll have to replace parts more frequently, change oil more frequently, and worst of all, you'll experience equipment downtime. To combat difficult conditions, LE offers an array of lubricants specially formulated for enclosed industrial gearbox applications. Gear oil is made up of two critical components: base oil and additives.
