Because this crusher did not have a system of blowers and an air seal, the customer was plagued with a constant ingression of solid contaminant in their lubricating oil. This was causing unnecessary wear and tear on their equipment and increasing maintenance costs.
Their maintenance team tried using a centrifuge and discovered that:
- It was very expensive
- Performance was unreliable
- Did not provide any improvements
Analysis showed high levels of contamination and wear metals in the oil.
Backed by over 50 years of expertise, Triple R took on the task of providing a solution for the crusher.
As the industry leader in oil cleaning solutions, Triple R installed a CS-SS305 self-equipped oil cleaning unit on a fleet of 50 crushers. Oil is drawn out from the tank into a kidney loop, passes through the oil cleaner, then returned back to tank cleaner than new. Due to the extreme ingression of contamination the X-Series element was chosen for its high dirt load capacity, meaning it will therefore last longer than other elements.
- CS-SS103-1R Oil Cleaner
- X-Series elements
94.5% Reduction in wear and tear on the components!
Triple R was able to deliver exceptionally better results at a much lower capital cost than previous systems. Since the contamination had been reduced there was less wear and tear on the machine components; wear metals were reduced, thus indicating Triple R oil cleaners would extend the life of their equipment.
- Significantly reduced wear metals and contamination levels
- Cost savings of $102,000 USD per year in oil
- Saved 1600 man-hours of labour in maintenance
