3751 & 3752 ALMAGARD® Vari-Purpose Lubricant 703 MONOLEC® Gear Lubricant Major Rock Crushing Operation, WA and ID Bearings Crushed and broken stone CUSTOMER PROFILE With locations throughout Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho, a major construction company has its base of operations in Spokane, WA. They have used lubricants manufactured by Lubrication Engineers, Inc., in their rock crushing operation for decades to lower operating costs and reduce downtime. This has a huge impact on their productivity in a very competitive crushed rock, sand and gravel market. For the past 15 years their LE Representative has been John Kowsky, Jr. APPLICATION Depending on the season, 3751 & 3752 ALMAGARD Vari-Purpose Lubricants have been giving many years of protection in the bearings of the JCI Screens, while the Nordberg 1352 and 1144 Omnicone equipment utilize LE’s 703 MONOLEC® Gear Lubricant in the oil lubricated bearings. LE’s 3751 & 3752 are also the maintenance crew’s choice in the three crushed stone conveyors which measure 500, 600 and 700 feet, in all the Caterpillar front  loaders, and earth moving equipment. During the busy paving and road construction season, this equipment operates two shifts, for a total of 20 hours a day. CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS With LE’s ALMAGARD and MONOLEC products providing protection, the mechanics feel the equipment is performing far more efficiently, with far fewer shutdowns for bearing replacement, and less man-hours spent relubricating. While no dollar figure is available, this was recently reinforced in early summer 2003, when one of the upper management people was “sold”, by a competitive specialty lubricant company, the idea that their lubricants were “just as good as LE, and cheaper.” Loyal personnel at this rock crushing operation were forced, against their will, to quit purchasing LE lubricants, and begin purchasing the competitor’s product. After four months of using the competitor’s product, the customer called John Kowsky, Jr. and asked to “please send us your product again. That other stuff we have been forced to use is running out of the bearings...we can’t keep it in anything. All we do now is replace bearings on the equipment.” With that, this customer was back to the LE products that had been giving them such superior service and uptime. OTHER PRODUCTS USED Because of the results attributed to LE lubricants over the years in the rock crushing operation, this customer also utilizes Lubrication Engineers products in the 4600 Manitowoc dragline (pictured). In addition to LE’s 3751/3752 ALMAGARD Vari-Purpose Lubricant, which is applied by grease gun by the operator, this vital piece of equipment is also protected with 703 MONOLEC Gear Lubricant, 8800 MONOLEC ULTRA® Engine Oil and 7500 MONOLEC® Power Fluid in the torque converter. Lubrication Engineers wishes to thank LE Representative John Kowsky, Jr. and all the operators and mechanics at this rock crushing operation, for sharing their experience of what happened when they switched away from LE lubricants, and for their loyalty for switching back.
