Lubrication

Thorough management of component lubrication is essential in mining and other heavy machinery environments. Environmental challenges can include extreme temperatures, high dust levels, 24/7 workloads, water ingress and contaminant issues.

Selecting the correct type of lubricant and ensuring timely and efficient delivery is crucial to the function and longevity of machinery. Inadequate lubrication causes equipment inefficiency and failure resulting not only in costly repairs, but also in unwelcome production standstill and downtime. Having quality lubrication systems in place can be the solution to these common challenges.

Our lubrication systems can be tailored to your requirements. We provide single-line and progressive lubrication systems on mining and construction equipment.

We also supply and service components, repair and refurbish pre-existing systems parts and provide complete site commissioning. The componentry we use is sourced only from reputable industry suppliers so you can have complete confidence in the quality and efficiency of our lubrication products and systems.
