Mining industry, Tough lubricants for a tough business

Lubricant in mining industries

Abrasive contamination, exceptional temperatures, oscillating movements and extremely high loads are eating away at your equipment day by day. Our mining lubricants act as a technical barrier protecting your equipment whilst enabling higher machine reliability.

Speciality lubricants developed by Klüber Lubrication are made for stationary processing and mobile equipment used in surface and underground operations. To serve both sectors perfectly we established the following equipment series:
  • M-series: Mobile equipment e.g. trucks, shovels, draglines
  • P-series: Processing equipment (stationary) e.g. crushers, mills, roller presses

In mining, the extraction of minerals goes on around the clock. Consequently, components such as bearings, pins, bushes, ropes and gears in mills, shovels or trucks are incessantly subject to friction and wear. Selecting the right lubricant is essential. An incorrectly selected lubricant may lead to premature failure of a component and in the worst case production stoppages entailing high maintenance costs and loss of production output and turnover.

High-performance lubricants for reduced production costs

With the correct lubricant you can extend the service life of the lubricated components and increase the availability of your machines. Lower lubricant and energy consumption also have a positive effect on your operating costs.

Mining Value Chain
Safe mining

Safety first – this is a basic mining rule which is fully endorsed by Klüber Lubrication. Corroded wire ropes or insufficient hydraulic oils may cause serious accidents. We assist you in selecting the right products like fire-resistant hydraulic oils or corrosion-inhibiting wire rope lubricants.

Sustainable green mining

Our aim is to supply eco-friendly lubricants without any loss of performance in comparison to our conventional special lubrication technology. We took mining, forestry, agricultural and ultra-strict marine regulations as a benchmark. With that in our mind, we developed the Klübersustain and Klüberbio product lines.

Wherever mining takes place – we are there

We are present across all continents and in all major mining regions, in many countries with local production facilities, service personnel and sometimes even R&D departments. Our product portfolio is globally available wherever your mining facility requires it.
