Precious Metals Mining - Managing the Integrity of Fluids to Reduce Downtime

By Daniel Guerin on Thu, Sep. 09, 2021

Managing the integrity of the fluids used in critical assets to reduce downtime

The risks related to Precious Metals mining can be quite daunting. Commodity price volatilities, Mineral Resources and Reserves estimates, Remote locations, Austere environments, Accidents, Labor, Environmental impacts are just a few of the many inherent risks mining companies must manage successfully.

Intimately tied into these risks are the formidable investment in the assets needed to mine Precious Metals! These assets are exposed to the harsh elements and contaminants found in the mining environment in which they must operate.

Oil Vacuum Dehydrators: Managing Water in Rolling Mill Lubricating Oil

By Aaron Hoeg on Thu, Apr. 29, 2021

Managing Water in Rolling Mill Lubricating Oil

In our last post, Improving Rolling Mill Oil with Vacuum Dehydration, we discussed how the demulsibility (ability of the oil to separate from water) of oil is an important characteristic that greatly influences the effectiveness of the lubricant and how a loss of demulsibility can result in poorly lubricated bearings, unplanned downtime and premature fluid replacement.

Improving Rolling Mill Lubricant Oil with Vacuum Dehydration

By Aaron Hoeg on Thu, Apr. 22, 2021

Benefits of Vacuum Dehydration for Rolling Mill Lubricant Oil

Steel mills typically use lubricants with high demulsibility for rolling mill back-up roller bearings and chocks since relatively high levels of water contaminate the oil from quenching and descaling processes. These rolling mill lubricant oils may be known as Morgoil as they are commonly used on Morgan rolling mill systems.

Four Ways Outside Contaminants Enter Your System

By Scott Howard on Thu, Apr. 15, 2021

Four Ways Outside Contaminants Enter your System

As an equipment owner or manager, the last thing we want to find in our system is contamination.  After all, contamination means loss of efficiency or even downtime, which ultimately costs time and money.  Contamination somehow always sneaks its way into our systems.  So, how does contamination get in our systems and what are we supposed to do about it?

The Dollars and Sense of Fluid Cleanliness

By Brad Bainbridge on Thu, Apr. 08, 2021

The Dollars and Sense of Fluid Cleanliness

The old phrase will always stand true, "A penny saved is a penny earned." When it comes to businesses and their pennies, every penny counts. When problems during the production and manufacturing process are fixed, people will say "pennies well spent." So, if pennies are so important, then what about dollars? What about thousands, or hundreds of thousands of dollars? What about millions of dollars? In today's production and manufacturing economy, these kinds of numbers are game-changing.

Getting to Know Demulsibility

By Brad Bainbridge on Thu, Mar. 25, 2021

Demulsibility

What is Demulsibility?

Demulsibility is the ability of oil to separate from water. Oil and water naturally separate because like molecules attract each other. Oil sticks with oil, water sticks with water. Oil is "hydrophobic", or "afraid of water," which is a benefit when it comes to fluids like turbine oil.
