607 ALMASOL® Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant
Rig Tex Services Inc., Odessa, TX
Gearbox
SIC 7699 Repair services

CUSTOMER PROFILE

Rig Tex Services Inc. repairs gearboxes on drilling rigs. They replace bearings and parts if needed to get them back to factory pecification or better.

APPLICATION

There are gearboxes such as Franks, Wilson, and Sky Top, which are widely used in many applications in the oil field.

AREA OF INTEREST

While using a commercial grade lubricant, they were experiencing short service life, excessive downtime, oil foaming, and the equipment was running hot. The gearboxes operate in extreme temperatures ranging from 20°F to 120°F. Drilling fluids may be splashed on quipment creating numerous problems.

LE SOLUTION

LE Representative L.V. Teakell recommended 607 ALMASOL Vari-Purpose Gear Lubricant. LE’s 607 is for heavy-duty service in transmissions, differentials and industrial gearing. It is a long lasting, water resistant, nonfoaming, very adhesive lubricant that protects against corrosive wear and reduces verheating.

CUSTOMER COST SAVINGS

Since changing over to LE’s 607, they have experienced longer service life with less downtime and no foaming. Their equipment is also running quieter and cooler.

Owner J.W. Blake states, "LE lubricants are the best we can use in the harsh oil field environment. I have pulled gearboxes apart when overhauling them and have smelled burnt oil. We don’t have that problem with LE gear oils. We give a 2 year warranty on our rebuilds and I want the best gear oil in them when I ship them out so that I know they will last".
