Mining, Minerals & Metals

Mining is one of the most demanding industries in the world. Productivity relies on smooth and reliable operations and in mining, the equipment used to extract the minerals are subject to long operating hours with heavy loads and/or frequent vibrations under very harsh operating conditions such as dust, wide and extreme cold and hot temperatures and the presence of water.

Open Pit & Processing

When you must move tons of ore to yield only pounds or even ounces of refined material, the reliability of the site is the key to success. Des-Case provides solutions to protect the lubricants in your equipment from the destruction dirt and water can create – regardless of what metal or minerals are being extracted.

Open-Pit Mining Equipment

Mobile Equipment

Mobile Equipment are in a dirty, wet and rugged environment which experiences heavy particulate and water contamination. The engine, final drives and hydraulic components are major oil lubricated components. The engine powers the equipment, the final drives support the movement of large wheels and the hydraulic components move tons of material from one location to another. If either of these components fail, there will be a significant loss in production due to the lack of redundancy. While these systems may have OEM specified filtration, additional protection will be required.
