Preventive Maintenance On Mining Equipment
Mining industry demands higher productivity and higher efficiency. Plus, the industry increasingly relies 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.
We need to monitor the cleanliness level and make early efforts for improvement to prevent wear and tear to gradually reduce the system efficiency. Sometimes, the system efficiency can fall by 20% before the machine operator even notices a problem.
