At a time when the mining sector continues to reel under tremendous pressure to stay profitable, this year’s Electra Mining Africa offers a perfect platform for Goscor Compressed Air Systems to showcase its turnkey solutions for the mining industry.      

A major highlight at Goscor Compressed Air Systems’ stand at Electra Mining 2018 – set for 10-14 September at Nasrec – will be the showcase of its complete turnkey solution for mining customers. The company is a proud distributor of two top quality globally renowned brands, Ozen and Sullair, and offers a range of compressed air solutions such as compressors, vacuum pumps, air dryers, air tools and value added products. On display at Electra Mining will be a range of rotary screw compressors.

“Electra Mining showcases the latest in innovations and technologies, leading products, services and solutions. At Goscor Compressed Air Systems, we believe that we are one of the leaders in the compressor industry, which is an integral part of the mining and industrial sector,” says Warren Schultz, GM of Goscor Compressed Air Systems. “Exhibiting at Electra mining gives us the opportunity to showcase our world class leading products, services and solutions we can supply to both our existing and potential customers.”

Schultz explains that compressed air is a critical medium for the transfer of energy in industrial and mining processes. The entire mining process – from exploration to ore processing, smelting and refining – relies on some form of compressed air.

“There are a range of different compressor systems to cater for these processes, depending on their purpose and the demand requirements needed for the task. No matter the size and the complexity of the system, the fact of the matter is that the mining sector will always need air in an industry that never sleeps,” says Schultz.

Apart from products and solutions, Schultz says Goscor Compressed Air Systems will have its experts at the stand to discuss some of the pressing issues in the industry. “While compressed air is indeed a valuable resource, it can also be costly, especially if leaks are not addressed and proper maintenance is not conducted routinely on the system,” says Schultz.

“Leakages are the reason for the biggest waste of energy in compressed air systems. Therefore, it is a must to detect and eliminate leakages frequently. We will be discussing this topic in more detail at our stand and guide our customers on what service offering and cost effective solution we can provide them to optimise their current systems,” adds Schultz.

In conclusion, Schultz says it is of utmost significance to deal with a reputable compressed air systems provider for the supply of such a critical component of the mining process. “Goscor Compressed Air Systems has over a decade of service and product excellence and is accredited with the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS) for ISO 9001,” concludes Schultz.
