Mining Safety Equipment

Extracting valuable minerals and metals from the earth’s soil has been done for centuries. Mined materials such as sands and gravels, limestone, coal, gold, silver, copper and aluminum are used in making roads and buildings, making concrete and making electric circuits. Mining, in some regions, provides the foundation for local economies. The work conditions surrounding the mine industry are very dusty, muddy and noisy; working under extreme temperature ranges. Heavy duty mining safety equipment is needed to operate in these severe conditions. Dust generated by drilling in mines still places miners at risk. Akron Brass cares about the safety of personnel involved and wants to help minimize the dangers in controlling dust and exposure to the environment.


Mining Safety Products and Solutions:

Products suitable for the rugged mining environment must hold up to non-stop vibration, untreated recycled water and extremely dirty conditions. Fortunately, Akron Brass has a solution. We have heavy duty mining equipment, such as unique manual and electric monitor (water cannons) systems for firefighting, dust suppression, high duty cycle, equipment cleaning and rock face stabilization.

Our product are proven to be effective, both in application and in cost. We saved Hunter Valley Operations $100,000 in a year with the installation of a water cannon. Learn more about the process.
