Intelex software addresses the unique needs of clients throughout the Mining industry. Our mining clients use Intelex to manage a wide range of activites, documents, tasks and data including MSHA requirements, permits, audits, ISO certifications, wastewater discharge, safety citations, and training all from a centralized, web-based portal.
The mining and mineral processing industry is reliant on water for all aspects of their operations. Water treatment and specialty chemical programs are critical to ensuring maximum recovery and throughput while helping to minimize downtime and mitigate environmental, health, and safety risks.
Our GPR products aid in determining mining safety, establishing bedrock depth, mapping sand and gravel deposits, ascertain rock quality, in addition to mineral exploration. Mining professionals use ground penetrating radar to accurately locate underground structures before drilling, blasting or carrying face operations. Ground penetrating radar is instrumental in helping to identify overhead separations in order to prevent ceiling collapses. In deep mine applications, ground penetrating radar is invaluable for...
Companies involved in mineral extraction, metal work and other mining activities have recently begun to understand the necessity for controlling their processes with robust testing, monitoring and process risk assessments. While many laboratories in this sector still run Excel sheets for data management, others understand the role of LIMS for measuring staff safety, improving productivity and adhering to regulation.
In a process unique to the mining industry, mineral ore must be extracted and conveyed to a means of transportation in a challenging environment. This involves the use of high-power fixed and mobile equipment with complex kinematics. The entire process is carried out in cyclic and variable operating conditions with significant safety and accessibility constraints. Mining operations are also a source of noise and vibration pollution both for site workers and people in the surrounding area.
Drying is an integral part of the profit and safety picture when processing minerals. Though the specifics of mineral processing will vary by location and industry, the parameters are similar. A reliable drying system is needed that will stand up against the harsh environment and produce a consistent, high-quality end product that can be sold. In short, you need a Vulcan® Systems Dryer.
In remote locations and mine sites distant from the nearest outpost, WesTech provides package plants for water treatment and for wastewater process that allow for drinking water to be made onsite and basic levels of sanitary safety to be met, allowing for continued production and a healthier site and workforce.
The mining industry uses chemicals as ‘flotation’ agents in the recovery of sulphide minerals containing metallic elements (e.g., copper, nickel, silver, gold) from ore slurries. Sodium ethyl xanthate (SEX) is one of most common flotation agents, and it decomposes to form ethanol, carbon disulfide CS2, and Carbonyl Sulfide COS. These harmful gaseous compounds must be monitored from the indoor air at the enriching plant.
