The global demand for base and precious metals continues to climb in today’s vast economy. Heavily specialized machinery is needed for mining development and exploration.
Bulldozers, explosives, and drills are all used everyday in different mining ventures.
Because of the extreme nature mining commands, safety has always been a long and controversial issue.
One of our clients, Joy Mining Machinery, has implemented safety procedures and programs that constantly monitor the assurance of workplace safety.
Not surprising to us, the basis for this program stems from the use of ultrasonic technology to clean and maintain safe and effective mining equipment in the field.
Traditional methods for cleaning mining parts involved hours of soaking parts in petroleum-based liquids to remove rock shavings, oils, and dust. Ineffective machines led to broken gears and drills causing an unstable or unsafe environment for employees. By using ultrasonic cleaning, a growing number of mining companies have been able to to eliminate the need for workers to come into direct contact with these harsh and toxic chemicals. Ultrasound creates microscopic vacuum bubbles that remove residue from surfaces not reachable by brushes or picks. By switching to ultrasonic technology, mining companies are able to significantly reduce overhead costs by decreasing labor and inspection times.
For this type of industrial parts cleaning, we recommend using OmegaClean, our water-based cleaning soap that handles the widest range of metals and dirt. OmegaClean also contains a rust inhibitor to prevent flash rusting on ferrous metals.
Mining companies that are using ultrasound systems across the globe aren’t necessarily searching for gold these days, but they’ve sure found it with ultrasonic technology!
