A trusted partner of the global mining industry for over 85 years, FUCHS LUBRICANTS SOUTH AFRICA offers a comprehensive range of lubricants to meet the arduous requirements of surface and underground applications, explains Dave Gons, National Sales Manager, Mining and Regional Mining Manager, Sub-Saharan Africa.

The range not only boosts equipment life but improves the health and safety for operators and other workers. This is especially important as failure to use the correct lubricants in mining equipment increases maintenance costs and leads to more downtime and production losses

The mining industry is an important growth area for FUCHS, not only in terms of products, but in servicing the centralised lubrication systems deployed by large mining operations. “The aim is to provide our mining clients with complete solutions for their lubricant requirements,” says Gons.

Depending on the specific mine, FUCHS has a field technician to respond to any maintenance or support issues, or it has an on-site technical team on a full-time basis. These technicians are responsible for looking after all equipment using FUCHS products, in addition to conducting any repairs necessary and compiling full reports.

Mines also have specific shutdown periods that provide a critical window for essential maintenance and repair of major equipment. In addition, FUCHS has the technical capability and resources to install any centralised lubrication systems on-site and provide the necessary technical and support backup.

Products for the mining industry include RENOLIT greases for permanent and long-term lubrication for high performance, reliability, and process compatibility, and RENOLIN industrial oils for diverse applications from hydraulic oils to turbine oils.

FUCHS mining lubricants can make a significant contribution to improved productivity in many other applications. They can increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption and associated CO2 emissions. “We develop technology-driven lubricants. As part of our commitment to technical excellence, we continually develop new products and optimise existing ones to better serve the requirements of our mining clients. Maintenance costs and breakdowns are reduced, productivity increases, and there is maximum value from the client’s mining fleet,” concludes Gons.
