Over-lubrication can lead to increased downtime, unnecessary maintenance costs, and environmental concerns. On the other hand, under-lubrication can result in accelerated wear and tear, leading to unplanned shutdowns and costly repairs.

In the interview, Ron Reiniger emphasizes the importance of sharing knowledge and best practices within the mining community. With over 26 years of experience in the industry, he stresses the significance of collaboration between seasoned professionals and the younger generation. The exchange of insights and hands-on experiences fosters a community based on trust and expertise, ensuring that valuable knowledge is passed down to maintain efficient mining operations.

As Senior Advisor of Technical Services at Petro-Canada Lubricants, Gord underscores the need for specialized lubricants tailored to specific equipment applications, especially with the diverse range of machinery used in active mines. The interview touches upon the critical role of lubricants in optimizing equipment performance, addressing supply chain disruptions, and adapting to changing environmental conditions to ensure the longevity and reliability of mining operations.
