Abrasive contamination, exceptional temperatures, oscillating movements and extremely high loads are eating away at your equipment day by day. Our mining lubricants act as a technical barrier protecting your equipment whilst enabling higher machine reliability.

Specialty lubricants developed by DANA LUBES are made for stationary processing and mobile equipment used in surface and underground operations. To serve both sectors perfectly we established the following equipment series:

  • M-series: Mobile equipment e.g. trucks, shovels, draglines
  • P-series: Processing equipment (stationary) e.g. crushers, mills, roller presses

In mining, the extraction of minerals goes on around the clock. Consequently, components such as bearings, pins, bushes, ropes and gears in mills, shovels or trucks are incessantly subject to friction and wear. Selecting the right lubricant is essential. An incorrectly selected lubricant may lead to premature failure of a component and in the worst case production stoppages entailing high maintenance costs and loss of production output and turnover.

High-performance lubricants for reduced production costs:

With the correct lubricant you can extend the service life of the lubricated components and increase the availability of your machines. Lower lubricant and energy consumption also have a positive effect on your operating costs.

Safe mining:

Safety first – this is a basic mining rule which is fully endorsed by DANA LUBES. Corroded wire ropes or insufficient hydraulic oils may cause serious accidents. We assist you in selecting the right products like fire-resistant hydraulic oils or corrosion-inhibiting wire rope lubricants.

Sustainable green mining:

Our aim is to supply Eco-friendly lubricants without any loss of performance in comparison to our conventional special lubrication technology. We took mining, forestry, agricultural and ultra-strict marine regulations as a benchmark.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Reliable wear protection even under extreme load conditions
  • Reduced lubricant consumption and energy costs

QUARRY Lubricants:

A quarry, also known as an open-pit mine, is a section of land that has been excavated in order to retrieve desired minerals and/or non-renewable resources. Mining generally has two common excavation types: surface mining and sub-surface mining. Machinery used in this industry includes; bulldozers, drills, haul trucks, drag lines, dredgers, loaders, screens and conveyors.

Lubricants for the quarry and mining industry include hydraulic oil, engine oil, transmission and driveline gear oil, mild EP gearbox oil for screens, conveyors, open gear and cable oils, and high impact water resistant greases.

DANA LUBES chemical engineers have built an experienced knowledge for the extreme environment and requirements of the modern mining and quarrying business. Where commodity prices affect the profitability of the resources industry, DANA LUBES continue to protect and profit mining operators.

Heavy Duty Transport:

The heavy-duty transport industry includes all machinery that is designed to withstand the stresses of continued demanding use. Trucks, including on-road, off-road and road trains are the predominantly used of the heavy-duty transport industry.

Lubricants well attuned to demands of the heavy-duty transport industry will include those that demonstrate wearability, durability and reliability in engine, transmission, diff and running gear.

DANA LUBES offers a range of superior qualities lubricants for the heavy-duty transport.

Extreme temperature variations and dust ingress is a major consideration in the formulation of a heavy-duty lubricant within Australia. Concurrently emission legislation and controls must be adhered to in order to meet environmental responsibilities.
