The Only Lubrication Company You’ll Ever Need

Over 50% of all machine component failures are due to water and particulate contamination. Manufacturing plants in North America spend over $4 billion every year repairing and replacing such equipment. It is vital that manufacturing facilities have a cost-effective way to remove this contamination and maintain acceptable fluid cleanliness levels. Nelson Oil Company offers a variety of services to accomplish this.

Incredible Service: The Proof Is In The Equipment.

Nelson Oil is committed to service. Our mission is “To be the most reliable provider of value-added products and services in the markets we serve.” Our motto is  “Improving Reliability, Delivering Value.”

We can confirm your ISO cleanliness codes on-site with our Laser Particle Counter. Utilizing our VAC-U-DRY Vacuum Dehydrator we can remove dissolved water and gasses from fluids contaminated with water.
