Processing

Castrol’s Liquid Engineers have developed a range of products and services to help Mine owners and operators run their plants efficiently and cost effectively.

Castrol’s Liquid Engineers have years of experience when it comes to the four operations of mine processing; comminution, sizing, concentration and dewatering. 

We know that mine owners and operators need to ensure their equipment is running at peak performance more often, otherwise they can experience downtime which in turn leads to rising costs. 

This is why we use our expertise of the industry and the applications involved to provide world class  products that help to offer customers a real competitive advantage. From motor, coupling, gearbox and bearing greases, to open gear compound, hydraulic, chain oil and wire rope oils, our lubricants provide protection against component wear, which can help prolong equipment life and reduce repair and replacement costs.

Our solutions work in extreme conditions across every type  of your equipment, from crushers (including gyratory, jaw, hammer and cone), apron feeders, vibrating screens to grinding mills (from ball or rod to SAG, AG and more). Our lubricants also apply to floatations, separations, material handlers, compressors, blowers, fans and sludge and slurry pumps.

Whatever your Mine-processing challenges, our Liquid Engineers can help you select the right products and advise on best-use to help reduce costs and achieve greater levels of productivity.

Operations

Recommended product

Greases

LONGTIME PD 2

Lithium based greases providing optimum wear protection and low coefficient of friction even under extremes of pressure, vibration, shock loads, at high or low speeds or varying micro-smoothing of friction surfaces.

MOLUB-ALLOY 777 RANGE

Greases based on lithium thickener with polymers designed for very heavy duty service in adverse environments offering excellent friction reduction characteristics due to Molub-Alloy solid lubricants.

MOLUB-ALLOY 6040 RANGE

Grease based on a unique calcium-complex sulphonate thickener containing premium petroleum base oils with select additives for extreme pressure characteristics and thin-film, high-pressure, anti-wear protection. It provides exceptional water resistance – the film coating stays on the surface even in the presence of water.

MOLUB-ALLOY 860

High performance multi-service lithium complex grease range is designed to extend the service life of bearings in heavy-duty applications and at elevated temperatures. Lubricating solids protect parts despite shock loads and boundary conditions

TRIBOL 4020

Multi-service greases (non-dark) formulated for heavy duty applications of plain and anti-friction bearings under medium to high loads.  Designed to extend the service life of bearings in heavy duty and elevated temperatures using propriety additive package that promotes surface improvement.

SPHEEROL SY

Synthetic, high temperature grease developed for use in rolling bearings where operating speeds are high and loads relatively low

SPHEEROL EPLX

Multi-purpose greases range with EP load carrying properties, and containing additives selected to enhance oxidation, corrosion and wear resistance.

SPHEEROL AP

Lithium-based greases incorporating solvent-refined base oils, containing oxidation and corrosion inhibitors, helping to ensure long service life and high level protection for metal surfaces. Suitable for use in high speed bearing such as those used in electric motors, fans or alternators.

Gear Oils

OPTIGEAR BM

With Microflux Trans Plastic Deformation technology, our Optigear range offers long-term or life-time lubrication, even when subjected to difficult conditions. Optigear has been formulated to help extend equipment life and protect against future damage.

OPTIGEAR SYNTHETIC PD

Castrol Optigear Synthetic PD is based on synthetic hydrocarbons with Castrol’s advanced gear oil system providing special plastic deformation (PD) and surface improvement performance and providing Superior micro pitting protection.

ALPHASYN EP SERIES

Castrol Alphasyn EP range is a synthetic gear oil with sulfur / phosphorus Extreme Pressure (EP) additive technology providing outstanding thermal stability and high load carrying capacity .It is suitable for use in gearboxes where micropitting resistance is required and for a wide range of applications in extreme environments.

ALPHA SP SERIES

High quality lubricants based on highly refined mineral oil, enhanced with sulfur/phosphorus extreme pressure additive technology, providing outstanding thermal stability and high load carrying capacity.

Open Gear Compounds

MOLUB-ALLOY 8031

For use in open gear applications in applications requiring anti-scuff and anti-wear protection and where product build-up is undesirable.

OPTIFLUID 4 EP

Optifluid 4 EP is  a high viscosity oil especially developed for the use in open gears, beds and bearings subject to high loads. It supports
high loads and with high adherance properties, maintaining a constant film on the metallic surfaces, even in vertical positions.

Hydraulic Oils

HYSPIN AWS SERIES

Castrol’s Hyspin AWS range has been engineered to help prolong the life of your hydraulic systems and boost productivity. The Castrol Hyspin AWS™ hydraulic oil range is based upon highly refined mineral oil with low zinc containing anti-wear system. This range is designed for use in industrial hydraulic systems which require anti-wear protection.

Compressor Oils

AIRCOL PD

Range of compressor lubricants, based upon highly refined mineral oils and carefully chosen additives. Intended for the lubrication of both reciprocating and rotary air compressors.

AIRCOL SN

For use in all types of air compressor, especially reciprocating and rotary screw compressors operating under severe or normal conditions.

Chain Oils

MOLUB-ALLOY CHAIN OIL 22

Mineral based and designed for use in a variety of plant-wide chain and conveyor applications where operating temperatures are up to 90 C/190 F.

Wire Rope Oils

MOLUB-ALLOY WR 1000

Our extreme temperature grease utilizes synthetic base oils in conjunction with a blend of Molub-Alloy lubricating solids, selected for high-temperature services.
