Stainless Steel Used for Many Mining Applications

Why the Mining Industry Needs Stainless Steel

Stainless steel has a lot of characteristics that make it perfect for the mining industry. It is easily fabricated. It is inexpensive and light compared with other metals of similar strength. It is corrosion-resistant, meaning it doesn’t rust. It is also very durable and easy to clean. It is also the most sustainable of alloys or fabricated metals. This makes it perfect for an industry such as mining.

Some Typical Uses for Stainless Steel by the Mining Industry

Stainless steel is versatile and can be used for a lot of different applications. It is used for mining screens, fluidised bed boilers, pumps, heat exchangers, vessels, pipes, tanks, structural components and cathode plates. Stainless steel also makes great workbenches.

Stainless steel is known for being easy to clean because of its smooth, hard surface. That also makes it perfect for any application where any substances need to be stored without the possibility of contamination.

For those who are staying in a mining camp, the kitchen in the “mess hall” will usually have a lot of stainless steel equipment, such as utensils, tables, benches, pots, pans, sinks, steam tables and the ventilation hood over frying or grilling equipment.
