This service is designed to optimise lubricant application and help enhance production through long equipment life and equipment reliability – which can help lower maintenance costs. 


As a complement to routine inspections, our well-trained engineers conduct in-depth shovel optimisation studies of central grease systems, open gears and key lubrication points, focusing on specific strategies to help improve production by extending equipment life.


We work with you to:

  • Schedule downtime for shovel inspection and optimisation study
  • Identify and follow the safety requirements to perform the study
  • Prepare a report to document findings
  • Outline optimisation strategies and associated potential savings
  • Leverage equipment expertise and OEM relationships for continuous improvement opportunities.


The Engineering Service Report documents the lubrication study of the shovel equipment maintenance practices.

Common opportunity areas

  • History of premature shovel equipment failure
  • Improperly lubricated open gears and other critical lubrication points
  • Improperly maintained central grease system
  • Productivity undermined by equipment downtime
  • Over greasing or under greasing
