Sand and Gravel

LE has served sand and gravel customers for decades and we have experience in this sector around the globe, so we have developed a good understanding of what the industry requires in terms of lubrication. The harsh environment demands superior lubricants, and LE products are up to the task.

We have developed lubrication solutions for engines, transmissions, differentials, gearboxes, open gears on draglines, hydraulics, cables and electric motors.

Engines in the various sand and gravel machinery and vehicles, including loaders, dozers, draglines, trucks, pick-ups and cars, floating dredges, pumps, conveyors and screens may be used in some of the most severe conditions. They may thus be affected by dirt, moisture, heat, cold, heavy-shocking loads and sometimes continuous operations. LE’s range of engine oils and fuel supplements provide a comprehensive solution to these challenges.

For electric motors, such as those found in dredges, water pumps, conveyor belts and screens, water, heat and continuous operation. LE’s Almaplex® Industrial Lubricant (1274-1275) and Monolec® Extend EM Grease (1282) are design to combat these challenges.

Transmissions and torque converters face many of the same industry challenges. We recommend our Monolec® Syn Multi-Vehicle ATF (1150) and Monolec® Power Fluid 7500. For manual transmissions, use Monolec Gear Lubricant (703-704).

For differentials, gearboxes and open gears on draglines, LE recommends our Duolec® 1600 series gear oils and our respected line of Pyroshield® synthetic open gear lubricants.

Hydraulics, such as those found on levelling cylinders, dozers, loaders and dump trucks, are subject to numerous challenges, including continuous operation in dirty wet environments and heat-related problems such as foaming, leaks, fading and chattering. Our Multilec® 6800 series line of industrial lubricants is an ideal solution to address these problems.

Our Wirelife® line of wire rope lubricants are designed to address the challenges experienced with the cables used on draglines, winch lines and tie downs, such as the dirt and water that tend to get into the cable strands and cause abrasion, rust and corrosion.
