How We’re Helping Partners Save
The Situation The Situation The Situation
The Situation

One of our clients is a pioneer in the field of over burden removal, coal, lignite extraction, and transportation. Their strong activity in mine development and operation means achieving high equipment uptime is a key factor in their success. Through trial and error, they found that the right lubricants played a significant role in their operations and were eager to find the right lubricants to reduce costs while improving uptime for their machines.

The Solution

Two years ago, our partner started using GS Caltex lubricants in various mining equipment. GS Caltex’s technical team partnered with them to carefully monitor oil conditions, train them in technical tasks, and visited them regularly to share product knowledge and add value by building up their client team.

The Impact

Our client was able to maintain minimum lubricant inventory on site by having products available at all times and saw higher performance across the board, including:

  • 1000 Hrs+
    High ODI (Oil Drain Interval), reaching more than 1000 hours for dump trucks after using Kixx HDX CK-4 oils
  • INR 40,00,000 +
    Achieved overall savings of INR 40,00,666 ($50,000 USD) compared to using other recommended lubes
