OnSpec Lubricants

IMG-service-lube-dispensingTechenomics International are the manufacturers and the suppliers of OnSpec Lubricants, The lubricants have been around for 10 years. The range has grown from a handful of products, to now having its own lubricant service trucks and software program.

Starting out as a small line featuring mine greases and rope oils, the popular range has grown to now include a large number of Advantage grease, Open Gear Lubes, hydraulic oils, gear oils, coolants, break out grease, and wire rope lubes sold not only to mining companies in Australia but in Indonesia and Laos too.

In fact the OnSpec lubricant range has gotten so big that today it has its own lubricant service trucks that not only have the capabilities of pumping into bulk tanks but also the capabilities of delivering directly onto equipment in the pits.

Further highlighting the range’s enormous popularity, OnSpec Lubricants also has its own software that can record and trend usage rates on all equipment, graph total site usages and trend lubricant problems with injectors and faulty pumps.

Techenomics manufactures and supplies a specialty range of oil products, lubricants and greases under the OnSpec and OnSpec Advantage brand names.

The Techenomics oil and lubricant product range has grown significantly over the past few years. It now supplies open-gear lubricants, anti-seize compounds, wire rope, and hydraulic, gear, rock drill and automotive oils.

Techenomics lubricant trucks are setup to deal with any on-site lubrication requirement for any equipment. With these trucks we can quickly and accurately dispense lubricants and avoid the contamination issues you would normally face.

The OnSpec Wire Rope Lube series consist of two premium quality special products designed to penetrate, lubricate and protect most types of wire ropes employed in the many and varied industries that utilize wire ropes eg fishing, construction, mining etc. Inpro Wire Rope Lube 10 (brown) is petrolatum based, easy to apply and suitable for a wide range of applications. Inpro Wire Rope Lube 40 is bitumen based and is ideal for use in applications where direct water contact is encountered.

OnSpec Advantage Lithplex 1 Moly Grease

  • Excellent mechanical stability
  • Excellent resistance to water washout
  • Excellent resistance to thermal, oxidative and structural
  • Degradation at high temperature
  • Effective in acidic, alkaline & saline conditions

A premium extra heavy duty, lithium complex grease designed to meet the demands of the most severe and hostile industrial and off highway applications and conditions. This grease has been formulated with extreme pressure (EP) and anti wear (AW) additives, tackifiers and adhesive agents that allow the grease to stay put under high water pressure conditions. With 3% Molybdenum Disulphide (moly) it has excellent wear protection for sliding and shock load conditions and is recommended for use in mining, automotive and industrial applications where harsh conditions of high temperatures, high loads and water spray or ingress are encountered.

Its outstanding EP, corrosion and water resistant properties make it particularly suitable for use in steel mills, underground operations, cement, mining, sugar and ore crushing plants. It is an NLGI 1 grease and so is suitable for pumping over distance.

Designed to provide protection against corrosion and metal to metal contact in wide range of automotive, marine, industrial, workshop and domestic applications, particularly where high temperatures are encountered. Its high copper content makes it effective up to 800°C. Due to the inertness of the clay thickener, it can be used in harsh acidic and alkaline environments.
