QUINTOLUBRIC ® 814-02

CASE STUDY − LONGWALL ROOF SUPPORT

 

CHALLENGES


 

Massey Energy works hard to achieve efficient and safe longwall operations. A major part of achieving an efficient and safe operation is selecting a hydraulic fluid that provides the following characteristics:

  • Provide lubrication of the hydraulic components
  • Maintain a consistency that allows effective filtering
  • Prohibit the growth of bacteria and fungi

In addition, Massey requires the hydraulic fluid to provide exceptionally high performance characteristics by exhibiting the following:

  • Low toxicity
  • Biodegradability
  • Product stability

Quaker′s QUINTOLUBRIC ® 814-02 has not only met these stringent requirements but has also reduced costs by increasing productivity and by reducing downtime and maintenance requirements.

 

THE SOLUTION


 

Since selecting QUINTOLUBRIC ® 814-02 Massey has seen dramatic improvements in the following areas:

  • Reduction in fluid maintenance
  • Increase in longwall operation
  • Increase in the mine′s profitability

Before using QUINTOLUBRIC ® 814-02 Massey′s longwall operation experienced high levels of solenoid consumption and solenoid sticking.
