Your New Service Tool:  HubMate

Revolutionising Mining Equipment Servicing with HubMate Low Profile Service Ports

In the world of heavy mining equipment, efficiency and safety are paramount. Maintenance teams face the daunting challenge of keeping these colossal machines running smoothly while minimising environmental impact, fluid contamination, and safety hazards. Traditional servicing methods often fall short, but Banlaw is changing the game with its innovative HubMate Low Profile Service Ports and Service Tool.

The Challenge: Efficient, Clean, and Safe Servicing

For decades, the mining industry has grappled with the dilemma of how to achieve clean, safe, and efficient servicing of wheel hubs, gearboxes, and differentials on heavy mining equipment. The traditional approach often led to spills, prolonged service times, environmental concerns, and potential safety hazards for operators and maintenance teams.

The Solution: HubMate Low Profile Service Ports

Banlaw’s HubMate Low Profile Service Ports are engineered to replace stock drain plugs on heavy mining equipment. Together with the Low Profile Service Tool, this solution delivers transformative benefits:

  1. Elimination of Spills – The Low Profile Service Port prevents gear oil from flowing uncontrollably, eliminating messy leaks and spills during servicing.
  2. Dramatic Reduction in Service Times – Mining operations can experience substantial time savings, with each wheel hub or gearbox service taking 5 to 20 minutes less when using a vacuum pump.
  3. Enhanced Environmental Protection – By virtue of its dry break design, HubMate minimises the risk of environmental damage, fluid contamination, and slip hazards.
  4. Precise Fluid Management – Refilling gear oil is made precise and efficient through metered delivery via the Service Port, eliminating waste, leaks, or the need for wheel rotation.
  5. One-Handed Operation – The Service Tool’s design allows for easy one-handed operation, making servicing more convenient and reducing strain on maintenance teams.
  6. Industrial Workplace Compatibility – HubMate is designed to withstand the rigors of industrial workplace environments, with a temperature range of -10°C to 100°C (14°F to 212°F).
