Under the direction of Duane Telecky, WMC is known for its engineering management and energy conservation programs. He is a strong believer in Preventive Maintenance, which is one of the reasons he and Washoe Medical Center have been users of LE products since 1977. Duane Telecky is responsible for 9,600 pieces of equipment. A formal maintenance instruction has been written for each maintainable unit of equipment, and the entire system is computerized. WMC pioneered this maintenance system for hospitals throughout the United States. Under the direction of Duane Telecky, WMC is known for its engineering management and energy conservation programs.

LE's 1275 ALMAPLEX Industrial Lubricant is used throughout the hospital plant in all greased bearings, pump drive and coupling bearings, on valve rising stems and zerk fittings. Duane Telecky considers LE's 1275 as the finest grease in the world. LE's 1275 is an excellent general purpose EP lubricant for

industrial use. It contains ALMASOL, LE's exclusive wear-reducing additive and is very effective in severe operations where moisture or high temperatures are present. It seals out dirt and water, and prevents corrosive wear. It is excellent for electric motors and can be used in central lubrication systems.

The Electrical Supervisor is responsible for the diesel generators which are vital to a hospital like WMC's operation. They use four 16-cylinder Cummins diesel generators, rated at 1 megawatt each, and three 350 kW generators for supporting life critical circuits. For the grease applications in these generators WMC uses LE's 1275 ALMAPLEX Industrial Lubricant.

LE's 6203 MONOLEC Air Compressor Oil is used in the cooling tower reduction gears and has protected the gears through 26 years of continuous operation without a single lubricant related gear failure. LE's 6203 is also used in the air handler pillow block bearings with excellent results. LE's 6202 and 6203 MONOLEC Air Compressor Oils are used on fractional horsepower motors where an ISO 46 and ISO 100 weight oil is specified.

LE's 4059 QUINPLEX H1 Penetrating Oil & Lubricant is used as a general purpose penetrating oil at Washoe Medical Center.

The mission statement of Washoe Medical Center's Department of Plant Services, as issued by Duane Telecky, sums up his philosophy of maintenance and service:

1. Provide for patient safety and comfort in as economical and efficient a manner as humanly possible.
2. Manage all of the resources to take advantage of opportunities affording cost savings with the goal of reducing health care costs.

Condenser water pumps use LE's 1275 ALMAPLEX Industrial Lubricant. The cooling system pumps have not had to have a bearing replaced in over 200,000 hours of operation.
