Heroes of the mining industry



Industry: Mining

Country: Mexico

Application: Joints and bushings in heavy duty equipment.

Product: Ultraplex 2 Moly Plus



"Extreme loads deteriorate the lubricant's structure and accelerate the mechanical elements' wear, which is why we need to protect them with a specialized lubricant"

The maintenance team ensures heavy duty equipment uptime and saves 30,000 USD in spare parts.



The challenge



In the biggest iron mine in Mexico the unscheduled stoppage index for extraction front loaders increased greatly. In just 7 months the company lost 21 full hours of productivity due to equipment downtime.



The stoppages were caused by premature wear of joints and bushings in heavy duty equipment. This caused the replacement of 7 bushings and 4 pins, generating costs of 30,000 USD in spare parts.



The maintenance team, in collaboration with a technical consultant form Interlub found the root of the problem: the lubricant in use wasn't able to endure the extreme loads that were required. And the presence of contaminants such and dust and mineral particles accelerated the wear.
