Minerals are raw materials from the earth that are essential to modern life. Mining is the discovery, extraction and processing of minerals, including coal and metals such as iron, copper, or zinc. Industrial minerals include potash, limestone, and other crushed rocks.
Health and safety is critical in the mining industry, with strict regulations to ensure operating standards are maintained to a professional level. Testing, calibration and inspection are important to ensure optimal conditions and efficiency of processes. The requirements for calibration in mining can be diverse. Plant instrumentation is used to monitor and control processes, electrical and mechanical test equipment is used by site engineers. There is also a variety of environmental test equipment utilised, such as gas detectors, analysers, and leak detectors.
Time Electronics has supported customers in the mining industry for over 50 years. Our products have been used for pressure, temperature and electrical calibration in various sites worldwide. In the last two decades we have provided turnkey solutions to processing plants, featuring CalBench systems and complete workshops. We have performed multiple site installations and trainings internationally, and supported mining companies in remote locations to improve and optimise their quality assurance.
