Ore Mining

In metal mining, compressed air is required for various tasks. It is used as an energy source for pneumatic power machinery, for cleaning the equipment, for signal transmission as well as for breathing air. It is also used for the cooling and generation of nitrogen. Air compressors have to operate reliably in harsh environments.
