I am Stephen Snow. I work for Arch Coal, Sufco mine in Utah. I have 38 years of mining experience in maintenance. The demonstration of AmberTech that I attended was very impressive. I decided to check it out thoroughly and decided to become involved with this amazing lubricant technology. From researching this product, I realized that we could drop emissions in diesel equipment and save bearing changes. I found a mine willing to test AmberTech products. The Concentrate was put in a utilities vehicle with a Mercedes engine. The average CO was in the low 200 parts per million. The CO dropped to the low 140’s in just one week after the AmberTech M99 was added. The second week the CO rose to 170. However, the next 4 weeks the CO stayed in the low 140’s. The oil was then changed at this point. The CO stayed in the 150 range. The CO count had risen to the 200 parts per million within the next 3 weeks. This shows AmberTech works to lower emissions significantly. AmberTech grease was put in the #1 belt snub roller pillow block bearings. These bearings were being changed every 4-6 months, and needed to be greased every shift. AmberTech grease was put in 1 new bearing and 1 old bearing. These bearings lasted for an entire year, and only required greasing every third day. The roller was changed out for a large roller, and this concluded the test.

I just want to tell you how amazed I am with AmberTech. We tried AmberTech grease in the bucket pins of a 988H CAT loader. This is an application where greasing with normal grease is required every 10-12 hours of operation. The pins will start squealing if you don’t grease them in that time frame. On the day we started our test, the ambient temperature was about 52 degrees Fahrenheit at 10 a.m. We used a heat gun to calculate a temperature of 88 degrees Fahrenheit on the pivot point pin area. We greased the pins on the bucket until they were purged of the old grease. The pins were doing great so we didn’t grease them at the end of the shift. The next morning the ambient temperature was 56 degrees at 10 a.m. The pivot point was only 42 degrees. Obviously there was less friction, therefore, creating less heat. With such positive results we decided not to grease the pins, but to check them again later on. Ultimately we ran the machine 6 shifts, using the machine in situations where water was covering the pins, before we decided to grease again. At this point, the pins were still not squealing. The next incredible part of this is the amount of grease used. With normal grease, the service man usually puts 7-10 pumps of grease in the pins, before it starts coming out. With AmberTech, even after running the machine for 6 shifts as opposed to the normal one shift, it only took 2 pumps of grease to fill the pins. In conclusion, with AmberTech we saw the ability to run 6 times longer and then use 1/3 to 1/4 as much grease. With the decreased temperatures, we can see the reduction in friction. AmberTech is the real deal.
