Lubricant related breakdowns can be of extensive cost for the mining companies. At times, they miss out on potential cost savings by underestimating the equipment productivity that effective lubrication can bring about. To stay competitive, mining companies are focussing to innovative programs to increase productivity, efficiency and performance.

Selecting the right lubricant is a critical first step in improving productivity and realising significant cost savings. The equipment’s design characteristics, operational parameters and operating environment must all be considered when selecting the lubricant.Working conditions in the mining industry are often severe; factors like temperature, humidity, dust and location all pose different challenges for lubrication.

GS Caltex supports mining companies in selecting the right lubricant which is the most important stage in improving productivity and meets cost savings targets. The team of experts has extensive knowledge and experience in supporting mining companies in product innovation and development, on-site equipment monitoring, diagnosis and troubleshooting, training and development and optimised supply chain operations.

R&D is the core strength of GS Caltex in developing product competitiveness for lubricants and polymers. GSC R&D facility is located near Seoul in South Korea which has developed many award-winning lubricants to forge partnerships with major OEMs and key accounts.

Our extensive relation with OEMs plays an invaluable role in delivering technical services that are consistent with latest trends. These services are indispensable in keeping equipment at peak performance and include advanced oil condition monitoring, customised training programs, technical trouble shooting and technical assistance.

GS Caltex Oil Conditioning Monitoring (OCM) testing and evaluation services offer full, independent, expert interpretation of lubricant fluids targeted towards improving productivity and reducing downtime.

Total fluid management is also fast catching up in India among leaders. We work closely with leading OEMs and mining companies focussing towards training programs on lube handling, storage and safety, on site inventory management, skill upgradation of operators and waste oil disposal advice apart from regular OCM (oil condition monitoring) services.

One of the biggest success factors for growth of GS Caltex Mining Lubricants is the use of Hi Performance Group II and Group III Kixx Lubo Base Oils. Kixx Lubo – Group II/III base oils have excellent low temperature properties and are exceptionally bright, white, clear and transparent. The Group II/III base oil produced by GS Caltex is environment-friendly with low volatility, reducing oil consumption and improving fuel economy. It also offers high thermal and oxidation stability to support drain interval extension. All these advantages are the result from the latest cutting-edge hydro-cracking technology. These benefits help the company adapt more efficiently to changing market conditions and generate greater customer satisfaction.

In India, GS Caltex high performance lubricants are blended in the state of art lube oil blending plant near Navi Mumbai and distributed across India through a well-established warehouse network to reach its end users both in B2B and B2C segments. GS Caltex India has been growing very fast in Indian market despite making a late entry in Indian lubricant space. Our associations with our key OEM partners are a testimony towards our commitment to India.
