By achieving a good lubrication programme and ensuring that contamination is reduced to the absolute minimum, we can achieve the following:
- Reduce friction, heat & wear
- Reduce oil temperatures
- Increase oil change intervals (decrease waste oil)
- Extend equipment & lube life
- Decrease energy use
- Increase production
- Increase profits
Lubrication reliability programme
Following are some ways to start or strengthen your lubrication reliability programme. By concentrating on these areas, you will see an immediate impact on your operation. The results will help you reclaim the costs of your improvements in very little time.
Electric motors – More than 70% of electricity consumed in industry comes from the use of electric motors. LE has the right greases and grease application tools for electric motors, whether you apply manually or would prefer time-saving automatic lube systems.
Air Compressors – The lubricant plays a critical role in sealing, preventing corrosion, preventing wear, and protecting internal metal parts. LE has the right lubricants for most compressor types, whether they are centrifugal compressors, reciprocating compressors, rotary screw compressors, rotary vane compressors or dry screw compressors.
Oil Analysis Program – A good oil analysis programme is integral to any successful l ubricant reliability programme. With consistent, accurate monitoring of the condition of your oil – whether in an engine, gearbox, circulating system or mainline power generation turbine – an oil analysis programme can help you improve profits with less lubricant to purchase, fewer parts to keep in inventory, less waste oil requiring disposal, less labour and less downtime.
Lube Storage Facility – Almost every industrial operation has a lube room or some central area where lubricants are stored. Contamination issues often start there and are already a problem by the time the lubricants are introduced into the equipment. Knowing this, LE helps many of its customers transform these areas into world class lubrication storage rooms that incorporate the latest in best practices.
LE offers industrial lubricant and reliability recommendations for a variety of industrial applications, and can provide additional data to help you make the right decision.
