Removing minerals from the earth has played a central role in the development of modern civilisation. Just think about the ages of mankind – Stone, Bronze and Iron – or historical events like the Gold Rush.
Yesterday, mining was a tough job for humans. Today, it is mainly a tough job for machines. A loader transports hundreds of tonnes of rocks, in exposed and dusty conditions. The heavy loads in combination with slow speeds make lubrication extremely difficult because there is insufficient momentum to help separate the bearing surfaces and build a lubricating film.
We solved the problem by combining a strong thickener and a base oil with high viscosity. Together, they have the power to keep the bearing surfaces apart and provide sufficient lubrication.
