ABB is taking its mining solutions on the road

2013-10-09 - This coming October and November, ABB will be touring Australian cities as part of a mining roadshow, looking at industrial productivity and energy efficiency.

Costs of exploration and development inaccessible areas, volatile market prices, rising costs, safety of workers, stringent environmental requirements and having 100% availability often in the harshest of climates. These are major challenges facing mining and mineral processing companies today.

Learn about ABB’s experience of being a supplier and partner of organisations experiencing these issues and how we have developed systems and products to boost productivity and reduce down time.

During the event we will be discussing four key industry issues:
This session will address some of the major safety concerns on mine sites today, and in particular, arcing faults. Arc faults can produce enormous gas pressures and extreme temperatures which makes containment a key issue in mining safety. In this presentation we will show you how arc faults occur, how arc faults behave and solutions to mitigate the arc flash risks.
