Mining Industry Filtration
The United States is the world's leading mining nation, supporting production in a wide variety of core commodities and materials, most significantly gold, copper, silver, lead, zinc, molybdenum and coal. In fact, the breadth of U.S. mining operations is so expansive that of all the major metals that are mined around the world, the U.S. is a significant producer of all of them except manganese and titanium.
The story is similar across the border in Canada, with the country called "a global mining giant" and one of the largest mining nations in the world. The country produces more than 60 minerals and metals, including such key commodities as aluminum, coal, copper, diamonds, gold, iron and steel, iron ore, nickel, potash, silver, sulphur, uranium and zinc.
The robust nature of the North American Mining market produces benefits for a number of ancillary industries. With the amount of heavy-duty equipment that is required—numbering in the hundreds, for example, in a large-scale gold- or coal-mining operation—proper filtration plays a major role in keeping the typical 24/7/365 mining operation running smoothly. And with some pieces of equipment costing millions of dollars to purchase and operate, ensuring that they are protected from costly breakdowns is a critical front-of-mind consideration for the mine operator.
With that in mind, Luber-finer stands ready with a complete array of oil/lube, air, fuel, coolant, hydraulic and cabin air filters, all of which have been designed to meet the challenges of harsh mining operations, and all with the primary goal of helping to protect the major heavy-duty equipment investments that mining companies make.
