    Agriculture

    Agriculture was the vast majority of human occupation prior to the industrial revolution. Then and now agriculture enhances and sustains human life.

    The industrial revolution foresaw the growth of agricultural machinery in order to maintain increased populations in which the standard of living and education was rising.

    This mechanisation of the agricultural industry has increased food productivity, which is being continued through larger and more sophisticated automated machinery.

    The role of lubricants in the maintenance of agricultural machinery is to ensure productivity and profitability is preserved during operation. As agricultural conditions, especially in Australia, range between dusty and arid to muddy and humid, lubricants need to be able to cope with the environment in which they are being utilised. LubeAlloy lubricants are formulated to overcome strenuous conditions as well as prolonging machinery life, productivity and profitability.

     

    Agribusiness, the business of agricultural production, includes various sections, including; crop production, animal cultivation, distribution, processing and retail. Mechanisation has allowed each of these sections to expand, and as such the machinery aiding this growth must be supported to operate at full potential.

    Oils in this category meet OEM requirements for Claas, AGCO, Kubota, John Deere, Massey Ferguson, CNH Global, CASE, International Harvester, Ford New Holland, JCB.

     

    LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricants that exceed the needs of these various sections can be found on the products page under AGRICULTURE.

    Heavy Duty Transport

    The heavy-duty transport industry includes all machinery that is designed to withstand the stresses of continued demanding use. Trucks, including on-road, off-road and road trains are the predominantly used of the heavy-duty transport industry.

    Lubricants well attuned to demands of the heavy-duty transport industry will include those that demonstrate wearability, durability and reliability in engine, transmission, diff and running gear.

    LubeAlloy offers a range of superior qualities lubricants for the heavy-duty transport.

    Extreme temperature variations and dust ingress is a major consideration in the formulation of a heavy-duty lubricant within Australia. Concurrently emission legislations and controls must be adhered to in order to meet environmental responsibilities.

    LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricant products for the heavy-duty transport industry ensures improvements to: engine life/durability, engine wear, fuel economy, high temperature operability, cold starting, top up requirements, drain intervals and soot control that will exceed expectations.

    Oils in this category meet OEM requirements for Caterpillar, Volvo, Mack, Daimler Benz, DAF, Iveco, Scania, Mercedes Benz, Detroit Diesel, International, PACCAR and Cummins.

     

    For LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricants recommended heavy-duty transport range, see HEAVY-DUTY DIESEL ENGINE OIL, HEAVY DUTY TRANSMISSION OIL, AUTOMOTIVE AND HEAVY DUTY DIFFERENTIAL OIL, INDUSTRIAL GEAR OIL and GREASE categories on the products page.

    Quarry & Mining

    A quarry, also known as an open-pit mine, is a section of land that has been excavated in order to retrieve desired minerals and/or non-renewable resources. Mining generally has two common excavation types: surface mining and sub-surface mining. Machinery used in this industry includes; bulldozers, drills, haul trucks, drag lines, dredgers, loaders, screens and conveyors.

    Lubricants for the quarry and mining industry include hydraulic oil, engine oil, transmission and driveline gear oil, mild EP gearbox oil for screens, conveyors; open gear and cable oils; and high impact, water resistant greases. For areas in which fire resistant oils and biodegradable oils are necessary, refer to LubeAlloy Environmental Oils.

    LubeAlloy chemical engineers have built an experienced knowledge for the extreme environment and requirements of the modern mining and quarrying business. Where commodity prices affect the profitability of the resources industry, LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricants continue to protect and profit mining operators.

    Oils in this category meet OEM requirements for Caterpillar, Komatsu, Volvo Construction, Hitachi, Liebherr, Terex, Bobcat Company, CASE, CNH Global, Demag, Fiat-Allis, Hyundai, JCB, Kubota, Kobelco, and New Holland.

     

    The LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricants range appropriate for Quarry and Mining purposes can be found under HEAVY DUTY DIESEL ENGINE OIL, HEAVY DUTY TRANSMISSION OIL, AUTOMOTIVE AND HEAVY DUTY DIFFERENTIAL OIL, INDUSTRIAL GEAR OIL, AGRICULTURE, INDUSTRIAL and GREASE.

    Food

    The food industry extends from farmer to plate. It is a complex and diverse industry in which worldwide populations are reliant on the quality, research, regulation, production, transport and distribution.

    Today’s food and food associated processing plants operate faster and harder than ever before. Lubricants used by the food industry are required to meet the stringent requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and/or the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS). Lubricants authorised are compliant with the specific regional standards and must meet either USDA H-1 and/or USDA H-2.

     

    The LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricants products appropriate for food grade use can be found under INDUSTRIAL.

    Construction

    Construction equipment generally has five equipment systems: implement, traction, structure, power train, control and information. Lubricants must be capable of delivering power to engines, hydraulics, gear and track within harsh working conditions.

    Construction machinery includes those machines involved in heavy construction task predominantly in earthworks. Construction machinery can be defined by the input power in relation to the output power by force factor multiplied.

    Off Highway machinery can be classified as:

    C=Compactor

    E=Earthmover

    G=Grader,

    L=Loader

    LS=Log-Skidder

    ML=Mining and Logging.

    An understanding of appropriate equipment used for any of the various Off Highway applications will demonstrate that oil selection is of paramount significance on production and unit cost.

    As the construction industry is very much contractually generated, cost savings on both minor and major repairs of machinery and equipment and investment spread is critical upon heavy construction machine operational times and profit.

    Oils in this category meet OEM requirements for Caterpillar, Komatsu, Volvo Construction, Hitachi, Liebherr, Terex, Bobcat Company, CASE, CNH Global, Demag, Fiat-Allis, Hyundai, JCB, Kubota, Kobelco, JCB and New Holland.

     

    The construction equipment range of LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricants can be found in HEAVY DUTY DIESEL ENGINE OIL, HEAVY DUTY TRANSMISSION OIL, AUTOMOTIVE AND HEAVY DUTY DIFFERENTIAL OIL, INDUSTRIAL GEAR OIL, AGRICULTURE, INDUSTRIAL and GREASE.

    Automotive

    The automotive industry consists of many key manufacturers located on every major continent. Today’s modern vehicles are designed around fuel efficiency, emission exhaust, smaller engines with increased torque and power, gasoline and diesel direct injection,  multiple turbochargers and variable valve trains and cylinder deactivation.

    Lubricants must meet specifications as developed by ACEA (Association des Constructeurs Européens d’Automobiles), API (American Petroleum Institute), and including those specifications as defined by the automotive manufacturer.

    LubeAlloy Specialised Lubricants continues to meet and exceed specifications of automotive manufacturers for every test prescribed by those builders.
