Mobil Dynagear™ 4000 open gear lubricant helps mine improve shovel hoist lubrication*
Company was able toreduce equipment maintenance costs.
Caterpillar Bucyrus-Erie 495 NI shovel – Hoist
In June 2011, Caterpillar revised the open gear lubricant specification for its Bucyrus-Erie 495 BI shovel and provided a revised service notice. In response to the notice, the company approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant to meet the new system specifications.
ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company use Mobil Dynagear™ 4000 open gear lubricant along with a performance study to evaluate the product. Mobil Dynagear 4000 lubricant is formulated to meet the Caterpillar SD4713 specification and provide outstanding protection of heavily loaded gears while using solvent free technology to help reduce runoff during application.
Results from the performance study indicated that Mobil Dynagear 4000 open gear lubricant maintained its characteristics while in service and helped to protect the gears. As a result, Mobil Dynagear 4000 lubricant helped improve production reliability and reduce equipment maintenance costs. Since performing the initial study, the company has transitioned three of its shovels to Mobil Dynagear 4000 open gear lubricant, helping to enhance equipment protection and prevent unscheduled downtime.
