Proper equipment maintenance is a top priority of any quarry operation. Solid maintenance practices can prevent costly downtime and allow for safe and optimized equipment utilization.

As a first step, it important to understand the OEM requirements and lubrication points for each piece of equipment. The lubricants required for a single piece of equipment could span from hyroset system to grease or hydraulic oil to diesel engine oil. And those lubricants must be stored properly, kept clean and current, and optimized to best meet the needs of your complete range of equipment.

Choosing the best lubricants for your equipment and operating environment can deliver significant gains in operational efficiency, particularly in the Quarry segment due to severe operating conditions. Ambient temperature, dust and particulate contaminants in the air, and exposure to variable weather all must be accounted for in the lubricant you select. And while premium lubricants can appear costly, the value the right lubricant can offer is unbeatable: cost savings, by extending drain intervals and the service life of equipment.

Shell Lubricant Solutions is proud to offer a complete portfolio of lubricants for Quarries and has a team of experts standing by to help guide these decisions. We look forward to serving you.
