Compressed air for the mining industry

Robust, energy-efficient and safe mining air compressors and blowers for all mining applications. Perform in the harshest conditions

Contact our expert

Rugged and reliable

Our compressors and blowers have a proven reputation for long term operation in tough mining conditions. Engineered to perform and provide the reliability you need

Safety first

Extensive array of built-in sensors and safety valves designed to protect your investment and personnel

Energy efficiency

Mining compressors with unrivalled energy efficiency

Decades of mining industry compressor experience

Mines are often located in some of the most remote locations in the world. Therefore, equipment is often subject to harsh environments and 24/7 operation. An unexpected downtime from the equipment failure is extremely costly due to the lost production of minerals.

All compressed air and industrial gas solutions installed at these mining operations are required to be tough, reliable and built to last

We have been manufacturing equipment for the mining industry for over a century. We help you maximise your operational efficiency and profitability  for all your mining applications:

geological exploration

surface and underground mining, and process
tunneling & drifting, raise boring, scaling, bolting, grouting, shotcrete, production drilling and flushing, explosive charging, blasting, operating slurry pumps, breaking, ventilation, tyre filling, refuge station air, workshop service air, paste backfill plant, dewatering, crushing, pneumatic conveying, pelletizing, filter presses, heap leaching, sintering, screening, loading and transportation

refining
smelting, refining, coke oven gas recovery, iron direct reduction, flue gas desulfurization, power generation, wastewater treatment, instrument air, utility air, process air mineral processing. Low pressure air can be used for applications like beneficiation or driving filter presses, and medium pressure air can be used to operate pneumatic controls.

pneumatic transport
pressures between 0.5 Bar (7.5 psig) and 4.0 Bar (60 psig) for lean or dilute phase conveying

filter presses
efficient filter presses for reduced water usage. Reliable, energy efficient compressed air up to 13 Bar (195 psig). GR compressors for 20 Bar (300 psig).

heap leaching
steady supply of oxygen for optimum growth and activity with a comprehensive range of low pressure technologies

crushing and screening
certified class 0 oil-free screw compressors will extend the life of filter cloths and reduce maintenance costs. They will also increase up time of bag filters

froth flotation
multi-stage centrifugal and rotary screw blowers for reliable, energy efficient operation, typically below 1 Bar (15 psig). Portable generators and power management systems for parallel control of multiple generators.

Oxygen and nitrogen for refining

In addition to compressors, we offer a range of packaged membrane and pressure swing adsorption (PSA) oxygen and N2 generators. Our adsorption and refrigerant dryers and filters help improve the efficiency of your compressed air and gas processes. Our compressed air dryers also reduce your overall costs.

  • primary air to furnaces and kilns 
  • power generation 
  • instrument air 
  • coke oven gas recovery
  • waste water treatment 
  • oxygen and nitrogen generation

Proudly designed by our Australian based engineering team

Atlas Copco customised compressor for mining operations
