Oil & gas Industry

The oil and gas industry has the essential role of meeting the world’s energy requirements. With global demand set to increase by 30% over the next 20 years, it has never been more critical to increase output and reduce operational costs in the industry.

We supply many maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products often found in the following applications:

  • Compressors
  • Cranes
  • Draw works
  • Generators
  • Separators
  • Fans
  • Pumps

Operating conditions in the oil and gas industry are particularly challenging. From high stress and vibration levels, to extreme temperatures and contamination, it is critical to ensure that all components are suitable for the conditions.

Any component failure in the oil and gas industry has the potential to be extremely costly. One potential solution to this would be a condition monitoring system, which detects failure before it occurs, meaning that faults can be fixed proactively, rather than reactively. This could reduce downtime, as well as improving worker safety.

A key factor in selecting components for the oil and gas industry is the environmental impact. For example, for bearings requiring an environmentally friendly lubricant, biodegradable lubricants such as SKF LGGB 2 grease could be considered, which has very low toxicity rating.

We can work with you to find the optimum solution for your application, enabling you to increase output, reduce operational costs and improve worker safety.
