Lubrication Solution Implemented on Mining Vehicles to Reduce Assembly Time
SKL Maintenance Systems Corporation case study APAC0016 – Chesterton products – Chesterton Industrial Lubricants
Different sorts of conditioning products can have positive and negative effects on machinery. Our client was using wheel saver rim conditioner for dismantling truck tires which only headed the process and made it more complicated. Determined not to waste time with dismantling, they made the switch to Chesterton® NR 900 GoldEnd Paste, decreasing dismantling time from two hours to 30 minutes.
Products featured in the case study:
The Heavy Equipment department at a Copper mine in Philippines was using wheel saver rim conditioner for dismantling truck tires, which caused great difficulty in dismantling. Taking more than two hours due to overlapping and corrosion of the rim and bedset, they were forced to use a fabricated metal which caused both safety hazards and dents on the flange and bedset.
Chesterton employees brought the client’s attention to Chesterton® NR 900 GoldEnd Paste with its many benefits and features. They decided to opt for this product and it was applied shortly after.
This change resulted in a decrease from two hours dismantling time to only 30 minutes. Other benefits included:
- Savings in rust remover, primary thinner, paint and labor
- Avoided corrosion
- Life of hauling truck tires was prolonged
- Saving on hazardous material
- Ease of sis-assembling and assembling time
- No damage to tire rims/components
