Quarry Machinery

Location: Sevenoaks, Kent

Date: Sept – Nov 2019

Products Used: Lanotec HD & Type A Grease

Project Overview

We carried out a full protective treatment on a Kobelco Excavator using Lanotec HD & Type A Grease. This was a test to highlight the protective abilities of the Lanotec range. The Kobelco unit was scheduled for use in a Quarry in Kent for a duration of 3 months. After which we revisited to evaluate the original application.

Why Use Lanotec

A case study was carried out at the recommendation of our customer as the quarry location is one the toughest environments they deal with. On 3rd September we used the Lanotec HD coating on all external components of the Kobelco unit and the Lanotec Type A grease on all switch gear and hydraulic couplings. The entire process took approximately 1 hour.


We revisited the Kobleco unit after 12 weeks, 720-hour term and captured images of the surfaces and components coated with the Lanotec range.
As illustrated the coatings applied were still in place.
