Turbine Power Generation - Automatic Lubrication Systems
POWER UP FOR RELIABILITY-CENTERED SAVINGS
Reliability Centered Maintenance, is the approach endorsed by Maintenance Professionals across industries. We practice RCM to support the protection of assets at the lowest life-cycle cost. Our World Class Lubrication Reliability Program incorporates best practices and produces optimum results.
For machinery to run efficiently, they depend on the type of lubricant selected as well as the method of application. Modern machinery requires exact methods of application, unlike when lubrication could be applied by hand, today it needs to be precisely controlled. For most machinery, different methods of lubrication and types of lubricants must be employed for different parts with either a grease or oil lubricant.
Whatever your lubrication needs, Lubrication Technologies, Inc. (LTI) can help
Extreme pressure, high temperature, continuous high speed, and contamination from dirt and moisture are all conditions that can create strenuous demands on the lubrication systems protecting valuable production assets. LTI can help you create and implement a customized lubrication reliability program that protects your equipment and keeps it contaminant-free. LTI's RCM program can deliver quantifiable performance advantages to rubber and plastic manufacturing operations of all types and sizes.
Proper lubrication + contamination control = profits
It makes sense. The number one cause of failures is contamination of hydraulic oils and lubricating oils with dirt and water. If we can limit the size of particulates that enter oil reservoirs to smaller than the film of oil we are counting on to run interference between two opposing moving metal parts, then we can accomplish the following:
Lengthen lifespan of parts, equipment and lubricant
Increase time between failures / increase production
Reduce friction, heat and wear
Reduce energy consumption
Reduce oil temperatures
Increase oil change intervals /decrease waste oil / decrease new oil purchases
Lubricant Handling / Storage Contamination Control
Keep it Clean-Cool-Dry
- Color Coding
Monitor / Improve
Common lubricant suffering points for modern machinery operations include:
- 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. Lubrication Engineers
has greases that are extremely tacky and nearly impervious to water washout, and can handle heavy loads with ease. We also offer automatic lubrication systems
for making sure grease is applied in the right place at the right time in the right quantity.
- 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.
