The tough operating conditions in mining and mineral processing pose special challenges to lubricants used in gearboxes, open drives, bearings, chains and other components. Selecting the right type of lubricant plays a vital role in maximizing operational reliability and uptime. This white paper presents factors that will help you identify the most efficient and cost-effective lubricant for a particular friction point by covering:
- Advantages of transparent adhesive lubricant formulations over conventional black adhesive formulations—such as handling a wide range of speeds and temperatures, optimally separating friction surfaces and reducing maintenance.
- How synthetic oils increase the performance of closed gears—such as polyglycol oils, which can extend oil change intervals as much as 500% and increase closed-gears efficiency up to 10%
- Improvements in plant operating conditions through expert tribological support
