Extending Component Life through Contamination Control

Eldorado Gold’s Tüprag mine in Turkey is a benchmark gold mine, working to achieve the highest standards in both operations and maintenance. For example, the site has achieved Caterpillar’s 5-Star Contamination Control Certification for its practices both inside and outside the maintenance workshop. By following Caterpillar contamination control best practices and working with Cat dealer Borusan Makina, the site saw a change in the maintenance culture at the mine. The result is a reduction in costs and an increase in component lives.
