ROCK SOLID RELIABILITY with Lubrication Technologies' Wide Range of Products for Aggregate/Construction Equipment
The Aggregate industry is a broad category of coarse particulate material used in construction, including sand, gravel, crushed stone, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. As you know, lubricants are not all made the same. In heavy-duty industrial applications such as those found on construction sites, a high-performance lubricant can have a significant impact on operational success. Heavy-duty equipment used in the construction of streets, highways, bridges and buildings is subject to extreme environmental conditions. Whether it is a cold, foggy morning or a hot, dry, dusty afternoon, these conditions will affect the performance of the lubricant. LTI's lubrication reliability program focuses on keeping the lubricant clean and dry to protect the equipment as well as the lubricant itself.
Lubrication Technologies, Inc. (LTI), has designed and installed Automatic Lubrication Systems for the Aggregate Industry; excavators, back hoes, loaders, and many other applications, both large and small. Not only does the aggregate industry have hauling equipment, there are the other applications that need lubrication systems/operations, such as crushing, screening, stacking, loading, and digging. As each of our systems is custom designed, we can provide many varying configurations, depending on the size of the machine in which they are used.
Prevention Keeps Construction Equipment Running
We work closely with our Aggregate partners to ensure their needs are met. LTI has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to installing Automatic Lubrication Systems for Aggregate businesses to help protect their equipment. By installing an Automatice Lubrication System on your equipment, you are reducing maintenance costs, saving on component wear, and increasing overall effeciency of the equipment.
Common lubricant suffering points for construction operations include:
Bearing failures - Greases that are subject to heat can melt and run out of bearings. Greases that do not form a good seal can let in contaminants. LE has greases that are extremely tacky and nearly impervious to water washout, and can handle heavy loads with ease. LE also offers automatic lubrication systems for making sure grease is applied in the right place at the right time in the right quantity.
Engine oil - If you are looking for longer oil life while still protecting your engine from the demands of the workload, LE can help you safely extend oil drain intervals with our superior, long-lasting engine oils and LEAP oil analysis.
Diesel fuel - Water can get into the fuel of diesel equipment kept outside, causing a loss of power. Injectors get dirty from the buildup of soot. In addition, environmental issues have led to the use of lower performance diesel fuel in on-road and off-road mobile equipment. LE has diesel fuel improvers that address these problems. They can clean up your fuel pumps, injectors and combustion chambers, thereby helping you regain fuel economy, reduce emissions and lower the overall cost per mile or hours of operation.
Wire rope - Do your wire ropes, cables and draglines become rusted, corroded or frayed? You can protect your wire rope and cable from high stress loading, shock loading, jerking and heavy loads with LE's full line of penetrating and coating wire rope lubricants. Whether you want lubricant to penetrate to the core or to coat and seal, LE has a full range of protective lubricant solutions, including wire rope lubricant applicators to reduce labor costs and ensure safe, reliable operation.
Although lubricants make up a mere 3% of the typical maintenance budget; using ineffective products, techniques and applications can have a significant impact on the lubrication-related costs that make up 40% of that budget. A Lubrication Management Program designed by the Technical Consultants at Lubrication Technologies, Inc. can help you target those areas where you see red.
Our On-Board Weighing Systems are technologically advanced, but easy to use. They are the result of extensive experience gained over the years by our technical staff and continuous investments in research and development. Our skilled and constantly updated technicians design innovative products and systems, inspired by direct requests from customers and detailed analyses of current market trends. We offer a wide range of state-of-the-art tools designed to optimize loads on both industrial vehicles as well as earthmoving and logistics machines.
Loading trucks with accuracy and managing loading data such as vehicle ID, customer and product names can be painful when everything is hand written! Loader scales and accessories from Lubrication Technologies are the Helpers an operator can count on to get reporting done quickly and efficiently.

|Lubrication Storage and Handling Solution|
Contamination control is the key to success in any reliability maintenance program and it starts with proper organization, storage and clean handling of lubrications.
|Contamination Control & Filtration|
Lubricants are the life-blood of your expensive equipment and protecting both from wear and tear caused by the presence of particulates and other contaminants is well worth the initial investment.
As oil functions inside your heavy equipment, the additives that protect the base stock are depleted over time, compromising the performance of the oil inside your expensive fleet and ultimately exposing them to wear and tear and costly equipment failure.
You can avoid these failure modes by implementing an oil analysis program. Click through to see how.
