Reshaping How the Oil and Gas Industries Approach Lubrication

Sloan Lubrication systems provides custom-built lubrication solutions for reciprocating and rotary equipment, many of them for the oil and gas industry – in other words, the fuel that powers us all.

And Red Lion controls helped elevate that mission further by partnering with Sloan to provide solutions for the company’s new TriCip system, a system that elevates not only the actual lubricant being used, but how that lubricant is delivered and the level of insight operators can have into the system’s operation.

“When we set off to build the TriCip system, we wanted to find a hardware solution and electronic solution that was already certified,” said CJ Sloan, Sloan CTO. “That was pretty key for us.”

Red Lion’s solutions allowed the TriCip to be built without a traditional controller, as the system’s HMI acts as a controller to provide key functionality. Specifically, Red Lion’s Crimson®️ 3.1 programming software for the company’s modules allowed Sloan to achieve its goals related to Internet of Things connectivity, analytical power, and more.
“In my opinion, IoT is very important,” CJ Sloan said. “It allows devices to be connected and more intelligent. We can have devices interconnected across different locations and across different companies. That really enables better intelligence for the entire industry.”

These industry-wide benefits include better prediction of failures, greater agility and proactivity, and more.

These kinds of systems could reshape the way not only the oil and gas industry approaches lubrication, but also how it approaches connectivity, IoT and smarter operations as a whole.

Solutions like this are also indicative of a wider shift toward smarter systems across a wide swath of industries. The ability to secure, analyze and act upon critical data has never been more critical, and it’s only getting more important as the fourth industrial revolution marches on.
