Preventive Maintenance On Mining Equipment
Mining industry demands higher productivity and higher efficiency and the industry increasingly rely on the use of electro-hydraulics, higher system pressures and tighter tolerances. Equipment preventive maintenance is crucial as these machines become extremely sensitive to contamination in the oil.
If the cleanliness level is not monitored and efforts for improvement not made early enough, wear and tear can gradually reduce the system efficiency. Sometimes the system efficiency can fall by 20% before the machine operator even notices a problem.
