Saving up to £13,000 a year and not making a single compromise on efficiency and reliability when it comes to compressed air in a mine. The secret? GA compressors
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
Extensive array of built-in sensors and safety valves designed to protect your investment and personnel
Mining compressors with unrivalled energy efficiency
We have been manufacturing equipment for the mining industry for over a century. We help you maximize your operational efficiency and profitability with oil-injected and oil-free air compressors or blowers for all your mining applications:
Surface/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 Large volumes of low pressure air for applications in the beneficiation process or medium pressure air to drive filter presses or 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, reduce maintenance costs and 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.
In addition to compressors, we offer a comprehensive range of packaged membrane and pressure swing adsorption (PSA) oxygen and N2 generators with purities optimized for your specific process needs. Our adsorption and refrigerant dryers, and filters ensure the compressed air and gases delivered to your processes will provide the highest productivity and lowest total cost of ownership.
