Metals and Mining
Extract More Value from Your Fluid Systems
A single mine site can incorporate over 50,000 feet (15,000 meters) of tubing, more than 20,000 fluid system components, and as many as 8,000 mechanical connections—no wonder choosing the right products and materials for various applications isn’t easy.
In addition to vibration and corrosion, there is much to consider when specifying components and assemblies for instrumentation lines, hydraulic power needs, chemical injection equipment, deluge systems, continuous emissions monitoring, sample probes, sample conditioning systems, and other critical support infrastructure.
That’s where Swagelok can help. Every day, we solve challenges for metals and mining companies across the globe. If you are planning a project or need fluid handling support, count on us for:
- Technical expertise. Collaborate with a multidiscipline team of design and field engineers, metallurgists, and compliance experts who know simpler, faster, safer ways to plan, build, and manage fluid systems
- Complete coordination. Navigate project imperatives, execution variables, and local regulations with a team of specialists at your back. Planning, design, logistics, contracts, delivery, inventory, training—we’ll help you manage whatever pressure you are facing.
- After-sale support. Swagelok authorized sales and service centers provide an exceptional level of support over the full life cycle of your assets. From assisting with maintenance planning to recommending efficiencies to developing your workforce, our work is not done until you are.
We excel at making reliable connections and bridging logistics gaps in any large project that spans continents. We have also fought corrosion since 1947 and can help you prevent costly problems caused by rust. Consult with us about proven fluid system solutions for the extraction, processing, and refining of metal ores and mineral reserves.
