Mining heat exchangers

Heat exchangers for mining operations


In mining operations, heat exchangers play a crucial role in maintaining optimal temperatures for various processes. Water with high mineral content in these processes tend to cause scaling, thus Tranter gasketed plate and frame heat exchangers that are easy to maintain is the preferred choice. Our plate heat exchangers are efficient, reliable and proven designs in many mineral processing applications, for heating and cooling duties as well as waste heat recovery applications. By utilizing appropriate heat exchangers technology, mining operations can enhance energy efficiency, improve equipment reliability and reduce their environmental impact.

Applications on the minerals behind the industry


Overall, heat exchangers contribute to the sustainable and efficient production of copper by optimizing energy usage, controlling temperatures, and mitigating environmental impacts associated with heat-intensive processes. Their versatile applications make them indispensable components in the copper production industry, enabling cost-effective and environmentally friendly operations.


Lithium is an essential component in many of the emerging clean energy technologies. Lithium is found in rock ores or in briny water where it can be extracted using evaporation. Tranter’s plate heat exchangers with plates in high alloy and nickel alloys can be employed for the briny water or for the acids needed for the mining process.


Zinc sulfide concentrates are heated in roasters to convert them into zinc oxide and sulfur dioxide. Heat exchangers are used to preheat the air fed into the roasters, improving energy efficiency by utilizing waste heat from other parts of the process. In electrolytic refining, heat exchangers help control the temperature of electrolyte solutions used to dissolve impurities from the zinc.
