Results Achieved

OIL FILTRATION

The following examples detail successes achieved by Filter Focus on behalf of our valued Clients, significantly reducing costs and environmental impact.

Kumba Iron Ore - Sishen Mine:

  • 40 000 litres of oil saved in the first year of implementation. Since inception this has increased to a minimum 100 000 litres per annum.
  • Socket liner on the Primary crusher was historically replaced every 3 Months. Average life extension on hydraulic pumps and socket liners has been extended by 10 times historical averages.
  • It is estimated that an additional production capacity totalling 12 full operating days has been gained per annum

 

Anglo Platinum:

  • Secondary crushing plant – OE in line filters were historically changed at the beginning of each shift due to overloading and filter bypass.
  • Since installation of Filter Focus high capacity filter systems, the chain of contamination growth has been broken and OE filters have not been changed in more than 6 months
  • Average life extension on hydraulic pumps and socket liners has been extended by 10 times historical averages.
  • Oil changes have been extended 4 times previous replacement intervals


Corobrick:
Traditionally, oil in the extrusion gearbox was changed every 3 months. To date we are averaging 5 years without an oil change. Gearboxes do not fail with Filter Focus protection.
 

OPEN GEAR AND BEARING LUBRICATION

Lonmin Platinum

  • Open Gear conversion - Technologically advanced lubrication, increased protection with lower friction co efficiency
  • Reduced motor power demand on Primary mill by 10% while producing at normal tonnage
  • Reduced power demand on Secondary mill by 12% while producing at normal tonnage
  • Reduced mill vibration and operating noise, with significantly less grease pollution
  • Increased PGM yield of about 1% - This is due to less pollution and the complete absence of hydrocarbons in the process fluid
  • OEM approved and results are guaranteed 

 

Hernic Ferrochrome

  • High pressure pumps would regularly experience bearing failure due to vibration and water entry. With the correct lubricants we have achieved savings of more than 20 million rand per annum
  • A successful oil analysis program has been introduced; identifying numerous problem areas which could be immediately addressed
  • Open Gear conversion - Technologically advanced lubrication, increased protection with lower friction co efficiency
  • Reduced mill vibration and operating noise, with significantly less grease pollution


 

DIESEL ENGINES


Vodacom 
The life expectancy of a generator in Africa is 11 months. Filter Focus fitted generators in Mozambique in 2003 and to date; Vodacom has not experience a single failure or even a breakdown across a network of over 620 units, in a country known for poor quality fuel conditions. After 8 years these engines are still performing like new.

Our systems are being used successfully by, among others:

1. Eskom
2. Anglo Platinum
3. Anglogold Ashanti
4. Anglo Coal
5. BHP Billiton
6. Harmony Gold 
7. Impala Platinum
8. Lonmin Platinum
9. Exxaro Group 
10. Xstrata Group
11. Kumba Resources
12. Afrisam
13. Lafarge
14. PPC
15. Minopex
16. Samancor
17. Rio Tinto
