Today I had an interesting job given to me. Go to the mine, go to the overland belt drive, open up the top cover of a large gear reducer and fish out an iphone 6 plus that a guy had dropped in there awhile inspecting the gearing 2 days ago. I went to lowes picked up one of those trash grabbers and see if I could snag it.
The inspection hole was about 10"x10". This gear case holds 150 gallons of oil, is roughly 8 feet long 2 feet wide, and 6 feet tall. We eventually drained the oil out, and found the phone. After much messing around I was finally able to get ahold of it with the trash grabber. It was a slippery son of a gun!
The phone was STILL ON. Had 50% battery, screen worked, everything. Picked it up and made a call on it. Worked 100% perfect.
The case was a pelican. The phone spent over 48 hours completely submerged in 320 synthetic gear oil. Phone as far as I can tell has no problems. Speakers work, touch screen works, screen is clear as it ever way.
