Industries Served

We supply lubricants and grease to all key business sectors, including the construction, engineering, food, commercial, transport, agriculture and marine industries.

Construction Industry

Equipment in the construction industry is subject to some of the harshest and most demanding of conditions of all. From bulldozers, dump trucks and drag-lines to scrapers and shovels, construction equipment is exposed to extreme temperatures, damp, dust and dirt that can degrade lubricant performance and lead to premature equipment failure. Rising Petroleum’s construction lubricants help prevent downtime and reduce operating costs by ensuring that you use the right lubricant for each piece of equipment.

On construction sites a high-performance lubricant can have a significant impact on operational success.Common lubricant suffering points for construction operations include:

Bearing failure

Greases that are subject to heat can melt and runout of bearings, letting in contaminants. Rising Petroleum has greases that are extremely tacky, impervious to water washout, and can handle heavy loads easily.

Diesel Fuel

Diesel equipment stored outdoors are subject to water seepage, causing a loss of power. Injectors get dirty from the buildup of soot and environmental issues have forced some firms to use of lower performance diesel fuel in on-road and off-road mobile equipment. Rising Petroleum offers diesel fuels that address these problems. They cleanup fuel pumps, injectors and combustion chambers, thereby helping you regain fuel economy, reduce emissions and lower overall cost.

Bearing failure

Good quality engine oil is essential for protecting your engine from the demands of working in the construction industry. Rising Petroleum can help you safely extend oil drain intervals with our high quality, long-lasting engine oils.

Wire Rope

Rust and corrosion are the biggest enemies of outdoor installed wire ropes, cables and draglines. Protect these valuable assets from high stress loading, shock loading, jerking and heavy loads with Rising Petroleum’s comprehensive line of wire rope lubricants for coating and sealing or for penetrating.

Engineering Industry

At its most fundamental, no matter the piece of equipment, a lubricant’s role is straightforward. It is there to simply to separate two opposing moving metal surfaces with a very thin layer of oil. When we keep the lubricant dry and contaminant-free, we extend the life of that piece of equipment, thus keeping the factory running smoothly and efficiently. It’s estimated that more than 70% of electricity consumed in industry comes from the use of electric motors. Electric motors can represent as much as 25% of all rotating equipment in a plant.

Bearing failure Prevention

The most common electric motor failures are bearing-related, and bearing life depends on proper lubrication. Rising Petroleum can provide the right electric motor grease for your specific industrial machinery. We have different types to suit different needs, including electric motor greases with specific characteristics such as oxidation resistance, low oil bleeds or low temperature torque.

Air Compression Systems

Lubrication requirements vary considerably depending on air compressor type, the environment in which it is used, and the type of gas that is being compressed. Lubricants play a crucial role in sealing, preventing corrosion and protecting internal metal parts. We have the right lubricants for most compressor types, including those for centrifugal compressors, rotary screw compressors, rotary vane compressors or dry screw compressors.

Food Industry

A high-performance food grade oil or grease can help combat severe operating conditions and prevent breakdowns of expensive machinery. To help our customers succeed, Rising Petroleum offers a variety of top quality lubricants, including high-temperature lubricants, specially formulated to meet the needs of food, beverage and pharmaceutical operations.

Food processing equipment requires tough, durable lubricants that must withstand conditions such as wash-downs, high oven temperatures and areas that are subject to high levels of contamination. Our food-grade lubricants include solutions for heat, cold, moisture, rust and oxidation, wear, foaming, staining, odour, frequent visual inspections, and much more.

Food Processing

Food, beverage and pharmaceutical plant applications require the use of H1 and H2 lubricants. NSF H1-certified lubricants are the industry standards for use in food processing plants, and can be used where incidental food contact may occur. Our H1 lubricant can serve as a protective anti-rust film, a release agent on gaskets or seals of tank closures, and as grease for machine parts and equipment.

Along the Production Line

Uses for H2 lubricants include any non-food contact areas of a food or beverage plant. These applications are usually below the production line and include oven chains, air compressors, oil circulating systems, enclosed gears, industrial turbines, hydraulics and oiled bearings.

Commercial Industry

Lubricants play a crucial role in all areas of commercial production. IN the paper and pulp industry for example, manufacturing plants use a wide range of equipment which depends on the lubricant to keep metal surfaces from contacting each other and to prevent contamination.

Contaminants are tough on equipment in the paper industry. Sawdust, moisture, acids, heavy loads and high speeds are tough challenges for any lubricated piece of equipment. The performance of the lubricant directly affects your operation’s success. Downtime and parts replacement can be expensive. The labor required to make sure that lubrication is being done in the right place, at the right time, and in the right amount also can be costly.

In the plastics industry, whether your equipment is used for extruding, compression molding, transfer molding, injection molding, or blow molding, Rising Petroleum can provide the right lubricants to keep your equipment clean and operating efficiently. Our lubricants prevent pump wear by providing thermal stability and viscosity consistency, and our heavy-duty hydraulic oils offer exceptional oxidation resistance.

Our lubricants protect tubing machines and extruders from failure. Our high-performance greases protect hyraulic pump bearings and electric motors, while our EP gear oils protect calendar gearboxes.

Common lubricant suffering points in commercial operations include:

Grinders & Fourdriniers

Sharp thrust-loads during grinding and pumping, combined with high-speed operation, can make grinders and fourdriniers extremely hot. This type of equipment is subject to constant moisture and contaminants which can lead to corrosion, early oxidation of the lubricant and impaired film strength. We have greases that are extremely tacky and nearly impervious to water.

Washers & Beaters

Water and acids are constant production problems. They either contaminate the lubricant in the equip mentor wash out the lubricant, leaving your equipment unprotected. A lubricant that will stay longer on your bearings, enclosed gears and open gears is needed. Rising Petroleum has top quality lubricants that are extremely tacky, can withstand heavy loads and high temperatures, and more importantly, can suspend many of the contaminants in the lubricants.

Calendar with Open Gears

Exposed gear teeth experience a rapid rate of wear because of fast speed and heavy loads. Losing a gear because of lubrication failure can be very expensive. Rising Petroleum’s superior gear protection lubricants works effectively, will not wash off and will protect the equipment from heavy loads and contaminants.

Transport Industry

In the transportation business, Rising Petroleum understands that success hinges upon on-time completion of jobs, while keeping costs at a minimum. Long engine life and efficient, economical operation are critical to achieving this goal.

For vehicles - from passenger cars and motorcycles to service vans, utility trucks and long-haul big rigs – our lubricants and greases play a valuable role by ensuring longer equipment life, less downtime, all-weather performance and improved fuel efficiency.

Agriculture Industry

Agriculture cannot survive without equipment. Whether you use tractors, bailers, trucks, air compressors, vacuum pumps or other agricultural machinery, keeping equipment running during critical periods is imperative. But tough environmental factors and operating conditions (cold, heat, dirt and water) make this a challenge.

Rising Petroleum can help with a full line of high quality lubricants that will protect your equipment, increase productivity, and save time as well as money.

Tacky Grease for the Outdoors

In agriculture, early starts often mean very cold temperatures, while daytime weather can become extremely hot. Irrigation exposes bearings and gearboxes to water, while extensive plowing means heavy strains and loads on tractors. All these conditions will require the use of heavy-duty grease that will not wash off, pound out or melt and run. Rising Petroleum offers an extremely tacky grease recommended for extended service applications, one that will lengthen grease intervals and not harden with age.

Automatic Lubrication Systems

We can supply farmers and other agricultural customers with automatic lubrication systems to ensure that their equipment is lubricated with the right grease, in the right amount, at the right intervals. We can enhance the engine performance of agricultural mobile equipment with engine oil formulations that prevents deposits and reduces wear in diesel and gasoline engines.

Work with Extreme Environment

Our engine oils deliver all-season and all terrain performance. They are formulated to provide excellent viscose properties at both high and low temperatures. For fertilizing and chemical spraying equipment, there is a high incidence for corrosion, so lubricants with excellent rust and oxidation additives are crucial to protect your equipment. Our line of lubricants are specially designed to protect chains and wire rope from rust and corrosion.

Marine Industry

Conditions at sea are tough: cold, heat, wind and storms, saltwater and high mechanical loads constantly impact moving parts on board ships and vessels. Under such circumstances, standard lubricants are often not up to the job. Failure of a crane, a winch or a drive motor means high costs by causing delays and requiring expensive repair.

High quality petroleum and lubrication products are thus crucial to the marine industry. So, whether you operate a fleet of tankers, cruise ships, containers or have military ships to maintain, Rising Petroleum has a full line of petroleum and lubricant solutions to keep your equipment and assets working smoothly and efficiently.
