Other extractive industries

Mineral extraction is vital to continuing global economic development and industrialisation. The conveying solutions provided by ECS make an important contribution to the growth, safety and efficiency in the mining of hard rock ores (such as iron and copper) and other materials such as potash and phosphate.

Steel cord belt, comprising pre-tensioned steel cord encased in premium rubber compounds, is used in the mining of hard rock ores as it is most capable of withstanding the abrasive nature of the materials being moved.

ECS also provides conveying solutions for handling minerals at other locations, such as ports.
