As the keystone of your extraction activity, electric rope shovels and drag lines are typically relied on for uninterrupted 24/7 service. Corrosion and wear causes surface degradation of the lubricated surfaces in extraction/shovel machinery and can be the root causes of most mechanically induced equipment downtime.
In-service lubrication analysis is a vital machine condition monitoring technique. In the time it takes external labs to return oil sample test results, machinery condition could have significantly changed. Spectro Scientific provides all three aspects of in-service analysis; machine condition, contamination and lubricant condition.
Spectro’s in-service monitoring solutions test for oil contamination, changes in chemistry and the presence of abnormal machinery wear particles and debris. You are provided with the industry tools needed to conduct these services in house and allow you to properly maintain your equipment providing higher equipment availability and productivity, lower maintenance costs, lower total cost of ownership, fewer outages, optimal equipment performance, and a greener operation.
