Abstract
The objective of this report was to search and organize world literature and industry practices connected with lubricants and lubricant-application techniques for wire ropes used in underground mine hoists. A secondary objective included the development of a rationale for selection of hoist-rope lubricants. Actual experiences in mines were concluded to offer a variety of lubricants and techniques that could be emulated by others in an effort to achieve improved hoist-rope reliability and life. When most of these lubricants were evaluated in the laboratory, it was found that they ranked highest in the majority of tests related to function. This led to the recommendation that low-viscosity oil-type lubricants are the materials of choice with which to maintain hoist ropes. A prototype specification covering the recommended lubricants was formed. The report contains conclusions and detailed recommendations resulting from each task including suggestions for needed research.
