Growing worldwide economic pressures and 24/7/365 schedules in mining, growing industrial needs for different ores and minerals have made the reliability and availability of the massive mobile mining hydraulic equipment even more essential. There are continuously increasing demands for higher productivity at lower operating costs of these equipment including hydraulic excavators, shovels, dozers, haul trucks and front loaders.
Special combination of higher bucket payload, more efficient digging and higher digging force, reduced weight and space of the hydraulic systems through higher system pressure, reduced hydraulic fluid tank size and harsh environment (dirt, dust, abrasive conditions, temperature extremes) make the operations of the hydraulic cylinders more difficult and challenging. High performance seal systems will play important role in the reliability and maintainability of the critical cylinders.
Such upgrade will raise the cylinder construction and sealing system to a higher standard and ultimately, this effort will help to achieve more uptime over the service life of the equipment.
SealFluid and FP offer specifically designed seals systems and retrofit upgrade solutions for the most challenging mobile mining hydraulic applications, supporting customers’ efforts to improve availability, productivity of key equipment in their processes and lower the overall operating costs.
