Fluid Power Energy for Mining Industries
Mines the world over use incredibly heavy-duty rotating equipment to drive vehicles, produce electricity, provide compressed air, pump liquids and transport gases to enable them to extract the mineral wealth from the earth that modern society depends upon.
Mines utilise diesel and gas engines coupled with an alternator to form a genset to produce electricity. They are also be used as a prime mover to drive compressors, pumps, etc.
Temperature control valves are utilised on the cooling system to maintain optimum engine temperature and also on lubrication system to ensure a consistent oil viscosity..
FPE’s Spin Clean centrifugal filter is incorporated on the lubrication circuit to extend oil life and change out intervals and ensure maximum up time.
FPE’s air shut off valves are incorporated into the air intake manifold of diesel engines where a combustible gas may be present that could cause rapid diesel engine runaway and explosion.
All mines utilise compressors to produce compressed air. FPE’s thermostatic valves are utilised to ensure optimum bearing lubrication and avoid water condensation when starting a screw compressor.
Other High torque hydraulic motors that are used to drive drills, winches, plant and hydraulic control systems utilize FPE’s thermostatic valves to control their oil temperatures and viscosity.
