Total’s Lubricants and Bitumen Divisions Prepare for Hillhead
Total Lubricants and Total Bitumen are preparing to attend Hillhead, the world’s largest working quarry exhibition at Hillhead Quarry, Buxton (26-28 June).
Total will showcase its products and range of value-added services to quarry operators and other users of heavy plant and equipment from all over the world.
With technical experts on hand, Total will highlight the benefits of its products and services that are designed to increase productivity, reliability and economy, while meeting the latest specifications and manufacturer approvals.
The only fully-integrated bitumen supplier in the UK, Total Bitumen has over 45 years’ experience in the UK market, providing a range of high-quality bitumen products, suitable for road, construction and industrial applications, that are all designed to deliver maximum performance and sustainability.
TOTAL Styrelf® is Europe’s leading polymer-modified binder (PMB) and is the ideal solution for heavy duty roads, bridges, airports and port cargo areas due to its exceptional resistance to permanent deformation and cold cracking.
Other Bitumen brands include Emulsis®, a PMB emulsion for surface treatments; Azalt ECO2®, a low temperature asphalt binder; Kromatis®, a clear binder for coloured asphalts; and Altek, a specialist industrial bitumen.
Total Bitumen works in partnership with customers as a trusted advisor to understand the challenges they face, and through this has identified six pillars of communication which underpin its proposition, and which it remains aligned to. These encompass supply chain security, skills, health and safety, asset management, low working temperature, and energy.
Total will also showcase the lubricants and other products it has developed specifically for construction site, mine and earthmoving equipment.
These include the TOTAL RUBIA WORKS range for engines, the DYNATRANS and FLUIDE ranges for manual and automatic transmissions, the HYDROFLO, EQUIVIS ZS and AZOLLA ZS ranges for hydraulic systems, COOLELF and GLACELF ranges of anti-freezes and coolant fluids, as well as its biolubricant products including BIOTRAFFIC.
One of the world’s largest cement producers saved £130,000 on fuel costs over a nine-month period after switching form a standard 15W-40 grade to TOTAL RUBIA WORKS 10W-40 FE.
Total will also demonstrate how its unique, in-depth oil analysis and diagnosis service, TOTAL ANAC (Analysis Compared), can reduce the likelihood of component failure and the risk of unplanned downtime, while increasing off-road equipment lifespan.
Lorraine Adams, Area Business Manager at Total Lubricants, said: “As the number one event for the quarrying and aggregates sector, we look forward to showing operators how they can rely on Total to keep their machinery running at optimum performance, even in the most demanding conditions, while protecting the environment.
“Alongside this, we see our customers as our partners, and through continual research, innovation and communication, we will continue to develop and bring to market products, services and solutions that address their needs both now and in the future.”
