Mining customers continue to see benefits from switching to Klüberlub BE 41-1501. A gold mining plant located in South America saved money in lubricant costs, equipment repairs, man hours and more. Here’s how:

The Challenge

The mine was replacing the plant’s gyratory crusher spider bushing every six months due to high contamination and improper grease selection. The crusher is a key and vital component and production halts when it needs repair or replacement. Using a competitor’s product, the plant also had extremely high lubricant usage. The mine’s goals were: 

  • Longer crusher bushing life

  • Less downtime

  • Lube system optimization

  • Decrease product usage

The Solution 

Enter: Klüberlub BE 41-1501 and engineering support from Klüber Lubrication. Klüber Lubrication’s team helped the plant’s engineers redesign the lube system and verify proper lubrication was occurring. The mine made decisions with confidence since Klüber Lubrication’s team was on site and available. Together, Klüber Lubrication and the mine met the goal of saving the plant money and increasing production.

The Results

The mine increased their production and cut costs:

  • Lubricant consumption was reduced from 62 drums a year (competitor’s product) to only 12 drums a year of Klüberlub BE 41-1501.
  • Crusher bushing life was extended from 6 months to 2+ years.
  • Cost savings was captured from reduced maintenance work and decreasing man hours worked.

Stopping production to deal with equipment failure costs you money: lost production, repairs and downtime costs. Avoid unnecessary costs with Klüber Lubrication as your industry partner. You will gain 90 years of industry experience, on-site engineering support and the right lubricant for your mining operations.
