The Mining & Quarrying Sector

Worldwide demand for minerals from the extractive industries has never been higher. Coal for power stations, iron ore for steel mills, aggregates’ for road building and potash for fertilizers are among the many natural substances being mined and quarried in vast quantities all over the planet. As the scale of these operations increase, so does the size and cost of the mechanical equipment employed in this type of work. It is in the operator’s vested interest to ensure that all areas subject to abrasive wear are made of the most durable materials available.
