Lubrication Engineers Lubricants and Lubrication Equipment for the Power Industry


Power plants use less energy and earn greater profits with Lubrication Engineers (LE) as their partner for lubricants and lubrication equipment. LE manufactures advanced lubricants, and offers preventative maintenance and contamination-control solutions for a variety of power applications, including wind turbines.

Conventional lubricants cannot meet the demands caused by the severe operating conditions found in power plants. LE lubricants offer the superior performance that power plants need.

Advanced lubricants for power plants

LE has experience with a variety of advanced lubricants for power plants, for equipment including coal pulverizers (ball and vertical mills), turbines, air compressors, ash-handling systems, coal feeders, conveyor drives, scrubbing units, and more.

Customized lubrication reliability program

A leader in lubricants since 1951, LE’s worldwide network of consultants and distributors has the expertise to plan, implement and maintain an on-site customized lubrication reliability program.

LE can provide the lubricants, reliability products and expertise to help customers increase profits through reduced energy use, reduced wear / increased equipment life, fewer repairs and less downtime, extended oil drains and grease relubrication frequencies, reduced lubricant consumption, product consolidation / reduced need for inventory, and fewer waste disposal concerns.

Enhanced lubricants with proprietary additives

Manufactured under an ISO 9001:2000-certified quality system at its plant in Wichita, Kansas, US, LE’s enhanced lubricants are formulated from highly refined base oils enhanced with additives.

The following proprietary additives are available.

Solid wear-reducing additive for lubricants

Almasol® solid wear-reducing additive for lubricants withstands extremely heavy loads, chemical attack and temperatures up to 1,038°C. It is attracted to metal surfaces, forming a microscopic layer but not affecting clearances. Almasol minimizes friction, heat and wear.

Dual-acting additive for lubricants

Duolec® dual-acting additive imparts synergistic properties to lubricants, providing both wear-reducing and extreme pressure protection. It increases oil film strength and is temperature-activated to provide a protective layer that reduces friction and prevents surface wear.

Wear-reducing additive for lubricants

Monolec® wear-reducing additive creates a single molecular lubricating film on metal surfaces, vastly increasing oil film strength without affecting clearances. Monolec allows opposing surfaces to slide by one another, greatly reducing friction, heat and wear.

Impact-resistant additive for lubricants

Quinplex® impact-resistant additive contributes to outstanding water resistance, tackiness and enhanced mechanical stability, and helps to form a barrier against corrosion.

Lubricants for power plants

LE lubricants are used by thousands of customers in industries worldwide where there are difficult operating conditions, equipment to be protected, and profits to be increased.

Its power-generation customers can attest to the results: LE lubricants reduce friction and wear, which leads to reduced electricity usage, longer equipment life, lower operating costs and greater profits.

Key LE lubricants for the power industry include the following.

Turbine oils

Monolec turbine oils reduce varnish and water contamination, lengthen equipment life and extend drain intervals for steam, hydro and gas turbine applications.

Gear oils

Duolec vari-purpose gear oils surpass the challenges of the most demanding power applications, including crushers and conveyor gear reducers. Benefits include a 75lb Timken OK load and FZG 14th fail stage pass, as well as superior thermal stability and water separation ability.

Synthetic open-gear lubricants

Pyroshield® synthetic open-gear lubricants are synthetic, high-viscosity lubricants for use in grinding mill and other extreme open gear applications. Our synthetic open-gear lubricants reduce downtime and decrease lubricant and electricity consumption.

Extreme-pressure grease

Almagard® vari-purpose extreme-pressure grease provides long-lasting, water-resistant performance. It dramatically lengthens grease intervals, eliminates bearing failures and can extend bearing life by up to threefold.

Contamination-control and lubrication reliability products

LE also offers a complete line of contamination-control and other lubrication reliability products.

Steam Turbine Oil Challenges

As the appetite for electricity by modern society continues to grow, so does the desire of power plant managers to increase the reliability of their plants. The main piece of equipment used by power plants to produce electricity is the turbine; if it does not run, the plant does not produce electricity.
