Metso 32x34 gold SAG mill
Mining company
Cajamarca, Perú

A Peruvian mining company operates a Metso 32x34 gold SAG mill. Lubricated with a conventional mineral oil, the OEM recommended setting oil drain intervals at one year. In an effort to increase mill productivity and reduce total cost of operation, the company approached ExxonMobil to identify a lubricant solution capable of safely extending oil drain intervals to more than one year.

ExxonMobil engineers recommended the company switch to Mobil SHC™ 630 synthetic bearing oil. Formulated with high viscosity base fluids and a proprietary additive system, Mobil SHC 630 bearing oil is designed to provide outstanding performance in extreme service applications as well as efficiency improvements over conventional mineral oils.

After transitioning to Mobil SHC 630 synthetic bearing oil, the mining company extended oil drain intervals from one year to three years on the SAG mill without experiencing any lubricant-related technical issues. These benefits helped reduce oil consumption, decrease labor costs, increase plant availability, conserve energy resources and generate cost savings of US $1,112,000 over three years.
