ImageThe sand and gravel industry is not new to Lubrication Engineers. LE has been serving sand and gravel customers all over the world for many years. The harsh environment demands superior lubricants. Lubrication Engineers accepts this challenge and understands the needs of this industry.

Engines will be used where electric motors are not able to be used because the equipment is in a remote area or is portable. All rolling stock such as loaders, dozers, draglines, trucks, pick-ups and cars have engines. Floating dredges, pumps, conveyor, and screens could also be powered by engines. These engines are used in some of the most severe conditions such as dirt, moisture, heat, cold, heavy shocking loads and sometimes continuous operations. To solve these issues, try LE’s outstanding engine oils and fuel supplements.

Transmissions are found in all of the rolling stock. Both torque converters and manual transmissions are used in this type of equipment. Typical problems include moisture, dirt, grit, dust and heavy loads.

For differentials, gearboxes and open gears on draglines typical problems encountered include wet, dusty, hot and cold operating conditions, vibrations, heavy shock loads and long continuous operations.

Hydraulics are found on leveling cylinders, dozers, loaders and dump trucks. Traditional problems include continuous operations in dirty wet environments and heat problems such as foaming, leaks, fading and chattering.

Cables are used on draglines, winch lines and tie downs. While working, individual cable strands rub against other strands. Being run on pulleys, sheaves and spools of drums put lines through severe conditions. Dirt and water get into the cable strands and cause abrasion, rust and corrosion.

Finally, electric motors are also used in sand and gravel operations and are found on all equipment not powered by gasoline and diesel engines. Most common applications include dredges, water pumps, conveyor belts and screens. Problems include dirt, water, heat and being overloaded with continuous operations.
