Mining and quarrying

Reducing the impact of mining and quarrying on the landscape and on the environment is undoubtedly a key challenge facing the growing mining sector.  Effective ore-processing practices and the efficient production of concentrates can help to limit the environmental impact by reducing the volumes of material that have to be transported and processed by potentially hazardous thermal and chemical refining methods.

The strength of stainless steel, combined with its resistance to wear and corrosion, makes it a prime candidate for pumps, screens, filters, etc. used in the processing of mineral ores and concentrates. This section of the library is dedicated to uses in this important industrial sector.

Ferritic stainless steel applications in the freight industry

Freight is just one of a wide spectrum of sectors in which ferritic stainless steel grades have proved their worth. Over the years they have become widely appreciated for ultra-long service life and long-term economic gains.

Expanded metal mesh

Expanded Metal is a simple, cost-effective and efficient form of fencing or enclosure which is produced from solid sheets of metals, including stainless steel. Because it is manufactured from a solid sheet, without weaving or welding, the woven finish can never unravel and the resultant sheet is more secure.
