There aren’t too many things that are more demanding than the traction motors of a mining behemoth or cutter head gearboxes several miles beneath the earth’s surface.
TRITEC was called upon over 15 years ago to solve an industry-wide problem with overheating and catastrophic failure of most mining equipment being used at the time. Our innovative Engineering team was able to allow for increased RPMs and at the same time reduce electrical consumption by providing a solution with a much lower coefficient of friction than previously thought possible. In addition, the wear sleeves and seals that we produced then and now are certified XP. Our PTFE rotary lip seals offer a broader range of service and longer life than any elastomeric seal can give you. If you need to keep slurry, abrasive coal dust, or various other mine debris away from your bearings, then give us a call. We will keep your mines up and running.
