Versatile Grease Offers Long-Lasting Protection
Automatic lubrication systems for marine and maritime environments need to be incredibly durable for an industry which often experiences extreme environments.
Our lubricators can be used in a huge range of marine applications, from the ship building process right through to offshore maintenance, shipping, and port maintenance.
Not only are our maritime lubrication solutions waterproof, they are salt and corrosion resistant, and able to withstand the harsh onslaught of marine applications.
Lubrication Technologies, Inc. (LTI), understands that safety and effeciency are key when it comes to the marine industry. The operation crew needs to maximize productivity, reduce maintenance costs and provide a safe working environment for the crew while at sea.
Prevention Keeps Marine Equipment Running
Machinery onboard ships need lubrication of some kind for smooth and efficient running. This is achieved by using different grades and types of lubricating oils which are stored in designated lube oil tanks or in drums or receptacles. We work closely with our Marine partners to ensure their needs are met. LTI has extensive experience and knowledge when it comes to installing Automatic Lubrication Systems for Marine 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.
The installation of lubricators greatly extends the service life of components by lubricating key points for engines, bearings, stern tubes, pumps, stuffing glands, port cranes, chains, winches, anchor pulleys, dock doors, swing doors, seals, electric motors, loading equipment and more!
Common lubricant suffering points for the marine industry include:
Engines - 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.
Difficulties with maritime lubrication
Although ship building involves some unique processes, component manufacturing is not dissimilar to other manufacturing industries. The difficulty in marine lubrication comes with maintenance procedures. In such a busy industry most ships don’t get much time to rest, and maintenance is done mid-voyage, with machinery operating. The equipment can be in hazardous locations and often exposed to the brutal forces of nature. Add violent rocking to the list and maintenance procedures can be hazardous.
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.

Certified to work under the harshest environments as far as salt, sand, dust, temperature and vibration are concerned.
|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.
