Lubrication reliability program keeps plants running

Because downtime is costly and can lead to an interruption in power supply, LE is committed to keeping you up and running. We will work closely with you to determine your specific challenges, then develop a lubrication reliability program with solutions that maximize uptime and protect your power generation equipment. Through careful attention to common power plant problems, we’ve developed case-specific solutions to enhance performance and extend the lifespan of your lubricants and equipment.

Each LE solution begins with an onsite assessment of all equipment requiring lubrication. A trained, local LE lubrication consultant provides you with a detailed report recommending lubricants, application methods, usage amounts, and drain or lube intervals. In addition to LE’s comprehensive line of premium industrial lubricants, your LE consultant can offer you our other reliability products and services to ensure the effectiveness of your program. Common areas of focus at power plants include:

Steam Turbines and Boiler Feed Pumps – Steam turbines and boiler feed pumps commonly suffer from problems associated with water contamination, oxidation and thermal degradation. In these scenarios, LE typically recommends Monolec® Turbine Oil, oil sight glasses and oil analysis.

Ball and Rod Mills – Costly disposal, environmental concerns, ineffective lubricant and equipment damage are all issues that commonly plague ball and rod mills. LE offers several solutions, including Pyroshield® Syn Open Gear Lubricant and a seamless onsite conversion process.

Bowl Mills – Strenuous operating demands and dusty, harsh environments can lead to serious problems for bowl mills. Duolec® Industrial Gear Oil, Dual Filter systems and Xamine™ Oil Analysis program are frequent and effective LE solutions.
