Mining

Reduce costs and improve mine operation performance

Mineral and ore based mining is challenged with more stringent regulation and shrinking capital budgets, while coal seam gas and shale mining is struggling to keep operations up to meet demand. Whatever end of the industry you are in, pipelines are essential to sustainability of operations. The harsh characteristics of processed ores, slurries, or injected chemicals, contribute to greater volumes of contaminates being processed, which raises tuberculation, and produces higher rates of corrosion and erosion of pipe systems.

Quest Inspar’s PipeArmor® polyurea liners provide the durability and structural properties necessary to cost effectively and safely extend the useful life of pipe systems in place.  The abrasion, temperature and chemically resistant properties of our liners are particularly suited to support temperature extreme processes, and the caustic material effluents and byproducts processed by mining operations.

Our robotic lining systems have the ability to line subterranean or elevated systems, and are self-contained rigs, which supports work in remote locations.  Depending on lining apparatus selected for smaller diameter pipe, our robots can traverse vertical systems, step change different diameters as well as navigate 90° bends.
