Mining

Whether extracting alumina from bauxite, iron ore, phosphate, copper, titanium dioxide or coal, there are some generic applications that can employ NASH equipment.

Applications

Compressed Air for Roadheaders

Installed directly behind the roadheader in the powertrain, our compressor allows for the extension of compressed air lines without interrupting the operation of the roadheader. 

Lithium Mining

With the highest electrochemical potential of all metals, lithium and its chemical compounds exhibit a broad range of beneficial properties. Our vacuum pumps & compressors are ideal for dewatering and also help produce a technical grade of lithium concentrate.

Methane Gas Extraction

The accumulation of methane gas can lead to dangerous, explosive and potentially deadly conditions. NASH products and systems are specially designed for this application to prevent the accumulation of methane gas in underground mining operations.

Vacuum Filtration

In this application, the moisture from the filtrate receiver of a vacuum filter is collected and fed back into the system. If a system upset occurs, such as the failure of the filtrate pump, slugs of liquid can carry over into the vacuum system. Soft solids from the filter can also enter the vacuum system. In both cases, the liquid and soft solids will not damage the liquid ring vacuum pump, improving the overall reliability of the vacuum filtration system. A variety of seal liquids compatible with the process vapors may be selected in order to minimize contamination of gases extracted during the filtration process.
