The mining industry is a tough business that delivers real wear and tear on the materials utilized in the mining process. Both Southwest Stainless & Alloy and Sunbelt Supply offer multiple products and services for this rugged industry. We carry many different grades of carbon, stainless and alloy pipe, fitting and flanges, in addition to a complete line of plastic abrasive-resistant piping systems in HDPE. We also offer complete system engineering, fabrication, installation equipment and/or rental coupled with in the field installation and joining of these plastic-based piping systems.
For your difficult valve applications, we offer manual and automated valves specially designed for slurry and/or mining applications, including not only gate, globe and check valves for non-critical applications but also knife gates, and metal seated ball valves for more demanding applications. We can offer valves with tungsten carbide or other HVOF (high-velocity oxygen fuel) coatings to maximize the service life and performance of their internal components to keep your mine running and producing. We also offer complete vertically integrated automated valve capabilities to minimize cost savings for our customers, and can provide finite element analysis (FEA) on our automation hardware to give our customers the peace of mind of knowing that our automated valve packages are up to the task of giving top performance in any high-torque demanding automated valve applications.
