About Lubrication Expert

About LX

Did you know Vickers estimates 80% of hydraulic failures are lubricant-related? Emerson estimates 80% of bearings failures, Cummins 80% of engine bearings – all fail through lubricant, contaminants and lack of lubrication.

But sadly so few people understand the true value of lubricants. 27% of all the world’s energy is lost to friction, so the potential impact of lubricants on sustainability and productivity is massive. And that’s what LX is all about – arming industry with the tools and knowledge to leverage this hugely under-valued asset that’s sitting right under your nose.

23% of the world’s total energy consumption originates from tribological contacts. Of that 20% (103EJ) is used to overcome friction and 3% (16EJ) is used to remanufacture worn parts

Imagine a world where just 40% of that lost energy was regained. Research tells us not only is that achievable, but that it would amount to a 10% reduction in greenhouse emissions and savings worth 3% of global GDP, annually.

This is why Lubrication Expert was founded – to help businesses wade through the marketing hype and understand how to leverage good lubrication practices into world-class reliability programs.
