Lubrication

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.

LE lubricant manufacturing plant, Wichita, Kansas, US – all of our products are manufactured here, ensuring consistently high levels of quality control.
LE manufactures advanced industrial and automotive lubricants, and offers preventative maintenance and contamination-control solutions for a variety of power-generation applications, including wind turbines.
Pyroshield open-gear lubricants provide protection for extreme applications including high temperatures and heavy loads.
We have an extensive range of both mineral and synthetic-based gear oils.
Our lubricant manufacturing plant provides products to distributors in more than 60 countries.

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.

3-D BullsEye Site Glass

Esco has developed a product to make the job of a lubrication technician or maintenance manager easier.

Almagard® Vari-Purpose Lubricant

Almagard Vari-Purpose Lubricant is suited to extended-service applications, and particularly on and off-road equipment where high impact occurs.

Almasol® High Temperature Lubricant

Almasol® High Temperature Lubricant is designed to withstand high temperatures, staying in place to provide constant lubrication. It also resists oxidation and vaporisation.

Duolec® Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant

An industrial and automotive gear oil with ISO grades ranging from ISO VG 46 to 1500, the Duolec Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant is designed for use in industrial gear or bearing applications that require a thermally stable, extreme pressure lubricant.

Monolec® Turbine Oil 6461-6463

The Monolec® Turbine Oil 6461-6463 reduces varnish and water contamination, and lengthens equipment life and drain intervals.

Monolec® Turbine Oil 6471-6472

The Monolec® Turbine Oil 6471 - 6472 provides high-quality performance in combustion turbines, and combines select base oils with a synergistic mix of additives.

Multilec® Industrial Oil

Multilec® Industrial Oil helps to reduce the wear caused by high temperatures, water, contaminants and heavy loads.

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.

Monolec Turbine Oil

This nuclear generating station located in north-eastern United States has been a customer of Lubrication Engineers since 2007. The station's major equipment includes its main unit - a General Electric steam turbine - as well as outboard heater drain pumps, auxiliary vacuum pumps, condenser vacuum pumps and other auxiliary equipment.

Lubricants Can Help Lower Energy Consumption

It is a simple fact, better lubrication can lead to dramatic energy savings and an improved bottom line. This ought to interest any plant manager who is looking for ways to reduce operating costs, and is especially significant at a time when stricter government regulations are in direct contradiction to reducing costs.

Putting the Simple Back into Viscosity

Simply stated, viscosity is defined as the internal resistance of a fluid to flow. That doesn't sound too difficult, does it? Unfortunately, new temperature, speed and pressure demands on lubricating fluids have changed over the years, resulting in several different measurements and classifications being created to describe lubricant viscosity.
