The mining process involves using advanced equipment and technology for everyday operations. Thus, it’s essential to ensure that your mining equipment is working properly, as it can have a huge impact on worker safety, mining efficiency as well as productivity. It’s important to note that mining equipment repairs and maintenance should only be done by specialized workers and engineers to ensure safety and efficiency.

Hanson Gear Works is a renowned gearbox rebuilding and machine grinding company. We use advanced methods like reverse engineering for the maintenance of various mining equipment, including gearbox repairs, rebuilding, etc.

Let’s learn some expert tips and advice for mining equipment maintenance.

The Importance of Routine Inspections

Regular inspections are the backbone of a robust maintenance program. Thus, it’s essential to implement a comprehensive inspection schedule to identify potential issues before they escalate. Skilled technicians can inspect critical components, such as gears, bearings, belts, and hydraulics, checking for signs of wear, misalignment, or leakage.

This helps in the early detection of problems and allows for timely repairs, preventing minor issues from evolving into costly breakdowns.

Proper Lubrication of Mining Equipment

Effective lubrication is the lifeblood of mining equipment. Properly lubricated components experience reduced friction and wear, increasing their lifespan. Hence, experts suggest that you should regularly check lubrication levels and adhere to the manufacturer’s recommendations for oil types and change intervals.

It’s important to note that over-lubrication can be as detrimental as under-lubrication, so ensure that the right amounts are applied precisely where needed.

The Need For Proactive Repairs

Mining equipment is complex, and maintaining it requires specialized knowledge. Even small concerns, if left unattended, can lead to catastrophic failures. Thus, it’s essential to rely on the expertise of qualified technicians to carry out repairs and replacements using genuine parts. A proactive mindset ensures that your equipment remains reliable and minimizes unexpected downtimes, ultimately saving you time and money.
