Mining

Rugged, durable solutions designed for challenging mining operations

Mining facilities face more than tough competition—they face some pretty tough conditions. While striving to maintain high safety standards and efficient operating costs, companies demand rugged protection for the critical equipment that controls power generation and distribution. Solutions must withstand:

  • Weather
  • Environmental and equipment temperatures
  • Shock
  • Dust and particulates
  • Mining process vibration
 

Developed with an emphasis on safety and reliable performance, AZZ mining products and services answer to some of the most hostile applications possible. A key offering that is absolutely critical in mining environments is lighting. AZZ is a leading manufacturer of harsh-location lighting systems, including a complete line of severe environment LED and HID solutions rated for the industry’s most demanding conditions.

AZZ is North America’s largest provider of hot-dip galvanizing, and has decades of experience protecting fabricated steel in open and underground mines. This extensive process, refined and optimized through AZZ’s 43 locations in the U.S. and Canada, is the only metal corrosion protection capable of standing up to severe conditions that exist in the mining industry.  

Surface mining locations worldwide trust AZZ to provide a complete line of electrical switchgear to support drag lines and shovels. Color-coded for easy identification, and available either as skid- or trailer-mounted, our switchgear is built to deliver leading performance in the environments they will call home.

AZZ's custom electrical enclosures are individually designed to house an extensive array of electrical controls and devices, and protect them from harsh industrial conditions. Our enclosures can be designed and constructed to meet NEMA 4, 4X, 3R or 12 requirements, and are available in stainless steel or aluminum alloy. We also offer additional structural and design options, such as wall or floor mounting to wrap-around or stand-alone units.
