The working environment of the mining industry imposes severe demands on the air compressor. It must ensure that the work efficiency is high and the maintenance is low.
Compressed air is an essential energy source, with up to 70% of industries using it for some aspect of their operations.
Businesses relying on compressed air for their manufacturing processes cannot compromise on the level of air purity, because any contamination could jeopardise the quality or safety of the product.
Typical uses of compressed air in the Mining industry include:
. Air operated tools — air tools are preferred to electric tools as they are light and easy to handle
. Air operated lifting equipment— air hoists can be used for a multitude of lifting operations
. Shot blasting — air is used to propel grit or shot for blasting and cleaning operations
. Cooling & heating — air is used in a vortex tube to create high volumes of hot and cold air for industrial heating and cooling processes
. Cleaning — air is used for cleaning processes in manufacturing facilities
