Industry Spotlight: Mining
A wide range of machinery and equipment that are used for mining purposes are exposed to some of the harshest and most stressful working environments. Corrosion, abrasion and excavation impactsare some of the causes of malfunctioning equipment.At A&A Coatings, we have many years of experience in the development of top quality thermal spray coatings for the mining industry.If you are looking for ways to protect critical mining machinery and equipment against wear and erosion, look no further than AGA Coatings!
The Mining Industry and the Need for Thermal Spray Coatings
Trams, trammels, hoppers and drills are some of the heavy machinery used in the mining industry. In addition, past and present mining activities also involve the heavy usage of vehicles such as loaders, haul trucks and bulldozers. These heavy vehicles and machinery are subject dramatic wear degradation. Without quality protective coatings, one could face costly damages at potentially critical times.
What’s more, large roasters, reactors mills and crushers are used in mining processing plants and they are too subject to extreme wear and corrosion. Fortunately, there is a way to reduce or mitigate this degradation. You can protect critical components and systems through the use of our coatings.
We can increase uptime with top-notch quality carbide-based coatings on mining equipment. We apply our coatings using thermal spray processes such as plasma spraying. You can rest assured that all of your components will be coated and finished at our in-houseHigh Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF)&plasma thermal spray coatings facility.
Common Mining Machinery & Equipment Parts that Need to be Coated
A&A Coatings offer proven solutions that can tackle serious issues that are regularly faced in the mining industry. Our thermal spray coatings are used to protect mining equipment such as:
- Insulated tanks and foam roofs
- Mining conveyor belts, hopper bins and loading pads
