Cone Crusher Oil Filtration

Crushers operate in dirty environments and keeping the oil clean can be a real challenge.  We began working with a Uranium mine in Saskatchewan that is focused on increasing reliability.  One way to increase reliability of fixed plant equipment is by installing permanent kidney loop filter systems.  We started by supplying an oil filter for the underground cone crusher.  The starting contamination level of the crusher oil was high (ISO 24/22/15)

The filter system began running on the oil and reduced the contamination dramatically.
