In the drilling operation, there is a very large list of various equipment types with varying lubricant requirements. In the last three years, Lubrication Engineers have furnished over forty different products to this industry. Because of the very harsh ad rugged environment within which the drilling operation is done, Lubrication Engineers products can prevent downtime, excessive wear and lessen fuel usage, saving customers a substantial amount of money.
Drilling is found all over the world with companies which can range in size from one rig to a large number of rigs and small shallow rigs to large big hole deeper rigs. There are over 8,000 drilling companies operating in the United States alone!
Diesel engines are used to power rig trucks, crane carriers, water trucks, winch trucks, pickups, power for mud pumps and air compressors. Engines are used in environments that range from very hot to very cold, dry to wet, and long running intervals. Recommended products include:
