Electra Mining 2018: Stand # P17 (at lake area)
Atlas Copco’s Power Technique business area will display its four-pillared product portfolio that delivers the perfect balance between performance, versatility, reliability, efficiency, and portability at Electra Mining 2018.
“Focused on mobility, our products power customer productivity across a wide spectrum of applications within the mining, construction, drilling and rental sectors,” states David Stanford, Business Line Manager at Power Technique. “The four pillars house air, power, light and flow solutions with service providing a solid foundation.”
Power Technique’s compressors, generators and light towers have gained tremendous traction in mining and industry, supplying convenient and efficient on-site portable air, power and lighting. “Building on the success of these three power solutions, we decided to introduce pumps to our product portfolio almost three years ago, forming our fourth pillar – flow,” explains Stanford. “The addition of flow power i.e. pumps, was simply a natural progression, perfectly completing our power package.”
“Our mobile pump ranges are underpinned by the Atlas Copco brand promise of superior quality and reliability,” affirms Stanford. The Atlas Copco diesel, petrol and electric mobile dewatering units comprising open-frame PAS dry and VAR wet self-priming centrifugal pumps are complemented by the renowned Weda range of centrifugal electrical submersible pumps. “Our pump offering is a little different, setting us a part in the pumps space; we supply a fully imported modular package making it one of the most flexible and cost-effective solutions currently available,” notes Stanford.
The air pillar which comprises small, medium and large mobile compressors for general construction will be represented by the U175 compressor from Power Technique’s Utility series. The 8 Series Utility air compressor range offers improved efficiency, unmatched reliability, increased machine lifetime and longer service intervals. A range of pneumatic products including tools, rock drills, and breakers also fall under this pillar and a new petrol breaker will be introduced to the local market at the mining show.
The power and lighting pillars will be represented on the Power Technique stand (P17) by a QES gen set and LED light tower respectively. The QES mobile generator series offers fast, reliable predictable power at the touch of a button to seamlessly meet the standby power requirements of the general construction and rental industries.
Incorporating cutting-edge LED (Light Emitting Diode) technology, the latest range of portable HiLight light towers deliver up to 25% more light compared to metal halide lamps with average savings of 60% on fuel consumption. According to Stanford typical fuel burn rates can be as low as 0,5 litres an hour.
Atlas Copco Power Technique is poised to powering the future with its innovative product and service portfolio. “Our value proposition of developing purpose fit portable products that deliver high performance and unmatched efficiencies over an extended life span for lowest overall cost of ownership differentiates us as a preferred supplier of power products,” concludes Stanford
