Removing minerals from the earth has played a central role in the development of modern civilization. Just think about the ages of mankind-Stone, Bronze and Iron-or historical events like Gold Rush.
Yesterday, mining was a tough job for humans. Today, it is mainly a tough job for machines. A loader transports tens of tons of rocks, often in a cold and dusty environment. The heavy loads in combination with slow speeds make lubrication extremely difficult, because there is insufficient momentum to help separate the bearing surfaces and build a lubricating film.
We solved the problem by combining a strong thicker and base oil with high viscosity. Together, they have the power to keep the bearing surfaces apart and provide sufficient lubrication.
