Mining is one of ATS Electro-Lube’s biggest industries globally. This is because our mining lubrication systems cannot be beaten for durability, reliability or operating parameters, making them the number one choice in the industry.
Components in mining machinery suffer some incredibly tough environments and conditions. Extreme temperatures, extreme pressures, 24 hour work loads, heavy contaminant issues, water ingress, explosive atmospheres, to name just a few.
ATS lubricators are built to withstand even the most rigorous of mining conditions. Waterproof, dust-proof, and with the best operating temperature range on the market, our automatic lubricators for mining equipment protect expensive machinery and your business from unnecessary costs.
Mining equipment maintenance
The challenges of efficient maintenance for mining equipment are obvious. High dust levels, very heavy loading and work rates, the cold, the weather, we could go on.
Selecting the correct type of lubricant for each individual mining application is crucial to healthy machinery. Equally as important is selecting the correct delivery method.
Mobile mining equipment is often out in the field, lubrication can be difficult, and the risk of contaminants entering at a lube point is high.
Meanwhile stationary machinery, refining and flotation equipment, can be working non-stop, demanding perfect levels of lubrication be maintained.
The number of lubrication points across a mining operation is vast. It requires a lot of hours to service them all, and it is very difficult to effectively manage what is getting lubricated and when.
Automatic Lubrication For Mining Equipment
Mining industry lubrication systems can offset all of these problems.
For mobile mining machinery we recommend single point lubricators. They continually lubricate components, ensuring bearings, gearboxes, and motors are being adequately maintained even during operating hours.
ATS single point mining lubricators are waterproof, dust-proof, and by applying positive pressure at the lube point they eradicate ingress of contaminants.
They also perform down to -40°C, which is essential for mining at higher latitudes in Scandinavia, Russia, and Canada.
Meanwhile, our multi-point lubrication systems for mining offer an incredibly cost-effective and simple way to manage huge range of mining equipment. Feeding up to 12 lube points from one unit, these systems offer a compact and very cost-efficient alternative to centralised lubrication systems.
They also allow lubrication lines of up to 10m to be run. This allows you to service hazardous, inaccessible, and underwater lubrication points from a safe working area, protecting maintenance operatives.
