How we help you reduce your costs

How can we help mining companies REDUCE THEIR COST?Total Mining Solutions has demonstrated its ability to reduce mining companies’ Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) on several occasions.



For example by replacing just one lubricant, Total contributed in saving £128,000 over 9 months to the UK aggregates provider Lafarge Tarmac in Mountsorrel Quarry.

“After reviewing the switch to Rubia Works 2000 FE 10W30 around 9 months later, we calculated fuel savings over of £128,000. When you are running an operation at full capacity 5 days a week, this is a significant saving.”

Shane Tompkin, Production Manager, Lafarge Tarmac, Mountsorrel

Our oil and mining experts will work with you to select the best product from over 2000 different types and pack sizes of lubricants… and help you select the combination that will benefit you the most.

We call it continuous improvement projects

Together with the mining operator, we work with your Finance, Warehouse, Maintenance, Mining and HSEQ teams to find opportunities to reduce your Total Cost of Operations while at the same time ensuring oil quality and environmental protection.

Typically, these projects can be:

  1. Introduction of energy efficient and fuel saving lubricants.
  2. The implementation of new lubrication procedures.
  3. Changes in the storage infrastructure and logistics.

For this to happen a strong involvement of the mining company is needed. On our side, we commit to demonstrate the savings to you, at the end of the project.
Today, Total is leading some of those projects in Asia, Africa and America.Contact Total team today to know more about our Continuous Improvement Projects for your mine.



How choosing the right combination of lubricants can make you more profitable?

Replacing one lubricant with the other can reduce more than just the lubricating cost.
You can choose a lubricant that will decrease your energy use and/or fuel consumption or increase your oil life which means less oil consumption and less waste of oil…
Or maybe you prefer a lubricant that protects your machines and allow you to use it for a longer period while reducing your maintenance cost…
And increasing your machine performance and availability will also increase your productivity... less downtime cost!
Further, you can also choose to increase your savings in physical inventories and working capital (minus up to 19% of your total oil cost) by using a lubricant for a wide range of operations and temperatures.
