- Buyer's Guide
Lubrication Engineers Inc. (LE) was appointed as the global distributor of Clear Grease Guns. These patented clear grease tubes allow users to have 100 percent visual grease identification, therefore avoiding costly grease cross-contamination errors. Grease guns on the market do not allow the grease to be seen meaning that proper grease identification is not possible. The clear grease tubes provide a simple, cost-effective reliability solution to eliminating grease misapplication mistakes. The dedicated Clear Grease Guns Web site provides customers with detailed information on this exciting new reliability offering from LE.
The tubes are available with a variety of assorted color end caps. Color co-ordinate the grease gun tube with the grease points in order to eliminate mishaps, thereby creating multiple forms of positive identification. These anodized end caps are constructed using T6061 aircraft aluminum and colors include: silver, blue, gold, black, red, green and purple. The tubes themselves are made from high-impact, fracture-resistant polycarbonate and use the thread pattern 2.280-16UNS (non-standard).
Clear Grease Tubes fit many existing grease gun models & are available to help modernize existing equipment. Converting existing grease guns is simple and cost-effective for customers. However, LE's Clear Grease Tubes will be available to purchase with a quality pistol grip and a lever style grease gun.

"The difference that these simple and cost-effective reliability products make is totally clear,” said Scott Schwindaman, president, Lubrication Engineers Inc. “LE has already received a huge level of global interest for the clear grease tubes from businesses that have realized how accurate grease identification can easily & quickly reduce their maintenance and operating costs – resulting in increased corporate profits. Expensive grease misapplication errors will be a bad memory after converting your preventative maintenance & reliability teams to clear grease guns. If you can't see what is in your grease gun, it's not grease identification it's grease assumption."
