CIM Edmonton 2008
Bradley Mark Crook,
Abstract Swing and Hoist gearboxes are one of the most critical mechanical systems on a dragline. Pall Corporation over the past 5 years have developed filtration skids specifically for dragline swing and hoist gearboxes. First designed in Australia, the skids are designed to be instaled perminantly to the gearbox lube systems to continually recirculate the high viscosity oil to maintain very low ISO Cleanliness Levels. The results have proven to extend gearbox reliability and maintenance schdules and have reduced oil changes whilst providing excellent and cost effective element life for their customers. These systems are now being installed in various formats throughout the world in many mines.
