Rogers Machinery provides proven compressed air solutions for the mining industry. From energy saving compressed air systems to energy audits and training, Rogers Machinery partners with mining enterprises to develop safe, rugged compressed air systems that satisfy the standards of the industry.
Mining makes extensive use of compressed air for both surface and underground operations. Due to the hazardous nature of mining activities, worker safety and environmental protection are among the most important factors in all mining processes that use compressed air. Air quality, heat, and ventilation can be challenges in dusty, confined subsurface mining operations. Compressed air solutions can contribute to a safe and reliable mining environment.
In part due to the challenging environment, compressed air is used extensively in mining. As an especially efficient means of transmitting energy underground, compressed air makes the whole process of resource extraction more efficient. Mining operations use air compressors to power electric and pneumatic tools for drilling, material conveying, transportation, mineral extraction, and complex ventilation systems. The use of compressed air driven machinery also contributes to ventilation and cooling as breathable air is exhausted by air drills.
A mining operation requires a compressed air system that can withstand the mining environment and hold up to continued long term use. Performance and reliability are special concerns for compressed air systems handling these rugged environments. A compressed air solution designed for mining environments can reduce unscheduled downtime, maintenance, and wear.
A Rogers Machinery compressed air audit can evaluate compressed air improvements to find energy savings and reduce costs. Training can also help raise awareness of the costs of compressed air and opportunities to improve, and can reduce energy usage by helping institute best practices.
Compressed air is useful for many reasons; however, it is expensive to produce. The total cost of ownership should be a factor when dealing with a compressed air system.Read
There is an old adage which is also a law of physics; what goes in will eventually come out. This applies to compressor lubricant in oil-flooded rotary screw compressors.Read
