Mining

Big drills, big spills, big money. Our industrial vacuums help you save more

Like a sleeping dragon, the mining industry awakens in cycles to heightened demand and production, but it remains a powerful force even in its slumber. Every day we drill deep into the earth to access billions of tons of the all-important metals and minerals our society depends on.

In this industry, you go big or go home. DuroVac makes industrial vacuum systems tough enough to handle the volume generated by mills and refineries — and help you save on vac trucks.

Serving Mining Operations in All Industries

With global iron ore production averaging more than 2 billion metric tons per year, iron is one of the most commonly-mined metals, followed by ores such as gold, lithium, copper, nickel, coal and lead.[1] Potash, along with salts and other fertilizers, is another important pillar of the mining industry, with over 68.1 million tons produced globally in 2018.[2]

Hundreds of thousands of tons of ore leave refineries and mills every day, and it all needs to be processed to make it usable in other industries. As ore is crushed, sieved, cleaned and refined, spills abound at the transfer points between each step.

DuroVac’s PowerLift® portable vacuums are perfect for grabbing those spills without adding much downtime. When refined ore falls away from the conveyors, Core™ central vacuums make it easy to recover valuable materials.
