Castrol's mining lubricants deliver competitive advantage through enhanced reliability, longer life and reduced lubrication costs for your mining machinery.
Mining is one of the toughest industries on earth, putting mining machinery under incredible stresses. That's a big problem in an environment where one equipment failure can shut down your whole operation in an instant and where replacement parts and labor can typically account for as much as 85% of your maintenance budget.
Castrol's high performance mining lubricants are formulated to reduce the risk of equipment failure, and backed up by a range of value added services like Castrol® Predict, which limits downtime by spotting potential problems before they can turn into expensive breakdowns.
Our mining lubricants also have the capacity to absorb shock loading while reducing vibration, operating temperature, sludge build-up, friction, wear and noise.
It's a fact that Castrol® mining lubricants are premium products, but that means they can actually help to reduce your Total Cost of Ownership, through extended drain intervals as well as increased production output.
So while mining machinery lubricants take up as little as 3% of your budget, getting them right really does have a significant impact on the overall profitability of your operations.
