𝟏. 𝐖𝐚𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞: For mining equipment exposed to wet, hot, and harsh weather conditions, you'd want a grease that offers robust protection against moisture, extreme pressures, temperature fluctuations, and environmental contaminants. Here are the key properties and the best type of grease technology for such equipment:
Mining equipment often gets exposed to water, whether from rain or operational sources. A grease with excellent water washout and resistance properties ensures that it remains in the application area and continues to protect the machinery.
𝟐. 𝐇𝐢𝐠𝐡 𝐓𝐞𝐦𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲: In hot conditions, it's crucial that the grease doesn't break down, oxidize, or lose its viscosity. High-temperature greases are designed to retain their properties even in extreme conditions.
𝟑. 𝐄𝐱𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐦𝐞 𝐏𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐮𝐫𝐞 & 𝐀𝐧𝐭𝐢-𝐰𝐞𝐚𝐫 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐞𝐬: Mining equipment is typically subject to heavy loads. A grease with extreme pressure (EP) additives can handle these conditions by creating a protective layer that prevents metal-to-metal contact, thus reducing wear.
𝟒. 𝐂𝐨𝐫𝐫𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐑𝐞𝐬𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞: The grease should protect against rust and corrosion, especially given the moisture exposure in many mining settings.
𝟓. 𝐌𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐧𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲: The grease should maintain its consistency under shearing forces, ensuring it doesn’t soften or leak out of the bearing.
𝟔. 𝐄𝐧𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐦𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐬: Given the growing emphasis on environmental protection, consider greases that are environmentally friendly or biodegradable, especially if there's a risk of contamination to nearby water sources.
Based on the above, some of the best grease technologies for such conditions include:
LAAPSA’s Tarmela 9800 White: This grease offers excellent water resistance, high-temperature performance, and corrosion protection. It's well-suited for wet and adverse conditions found in mining.
