Surface Mining

To access profitable material deposits located near the surface, heavy machinery and blasting techniques are used to remove overburden soil and rock which would normally impede extraction of materials. Depending on the material extracted, the ore or raw mineral is conveyed to a processing plant where it is either washed, beneficiated, concentrated or refined to achieve the saleable product.

As the extraction and processing of the raw material is done in the most demanding of environments, components on the machinery used need to excel in these conditions. For these applications Tsubaki offers a wide variety of tried and tested heavy duty roller chains, conveyor chains, reclaimer chains, engineering class sprockets, back stops, electric actuators and protection devices for use on equipment or in plants such as:
