Water & Wastewater Treatment

Lubrication Engineers lubricants have found ready acceptance in water and wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) of all kinds. The ability to operate under difficult environmental conditions, and deal with the corrosive and hostile chemistry of sewage treatment makes them very useful. The absence of any toxic ingredients or additives in the LE lubricants is another important feature. LE’s informative WWTP brochure is available to download here (PDF - 3.83 MB).

Proper maintenance of WWTP equipment has become more important as well as more complex. There have been many new technical developments and a great deal of modern equipment put into use. This advancement demands more highly trained people and a much better knowledge of maintenance, lubricants and their application. Lubrication is the lifeblood of any mechanical system, but even more so in WWTP equipment, as it is constantly in contact with harsh contaminants such as acid, moisture and dirt.

Please visit the Water & Wastewater industry page on the LE Inc corporate site for more information on the following applications:

  • Anti-friction & plain bearings
  • Air compressors, pumps, hydraulics & turbines
  • Gear reducers
  • Grease fittings
  • Chains & chain drives

In addition, you can visit our Techni-Tips section for six detailed WWTP documents.
